Renewal pledge £10 Million towards the Foundation

I am delighted to be part of this hugely exciting and ambitious project. Surrey Canal: London’s Sporting Village will make a strong contribution towards 2012 Legacy by addressing the lack of high quality sports provision in inner London.  This is also a fantastic opportunity to promote sport and healthy living within the local community who will have access to the facilities at affordable prices.

Chairman

Steven Norris, former London Mayoral candidate, is established as Chairman.

Having grown up in SE London, an indoor sporting facility of this size offers a fantastic opportunity to address the overall lack of facilities in this area. Personally, I am delighted by the presence of an Indoor Cricket Centre at Surrey Canal, and I know that Kent Cricket have expressed particular interest and support. I wish you every success and will follow your progress closely.

The Needs & Demands report is an appendix to the Regeneration statement and is available to download here:

A Needs & Demands Report is commissioned by Renewal, Lewisham and Sport England which shows three key issues: the area suffers from high levels of health deprivation (e.g., obesity, type 2 diabetes and lower than average life expectancy), a young population (1 in 3 aged 15 to 25), and a high demand for accessible sports facilities.

I grew up in South London where I started playing basketball but due to a lack of facilities I had to travel some distance to attend training sessions. I know this played a factor in that many people, including my friends, stopped attending regularly. Through my basketball clinics in South London, I have witnessed the immense talent the area has to offer. I fully support the development of such fantastic facilities to promote sport in South London; the area in which my career started."

Lewisham Council tell Renewal, developers of the wider Surrey Canal regeneration, that the site is not suitable for large retail or office development. With these parameters set Renewal consider alternative non-residential uses. Following a visit to the indoor cricket facilities at Lord's and after learning that there is a 6 month waiting list Renewal begin to consider indoor sports facilities at Surrey Canal.
