The Director of Public Health submitted a report (copies of which had been circulated) providing an update on the implementation of the Active Communities Strategy which had been approved by the Cabinet in June 2019 and set out a proposed new approach to a delivery partnership within the Active Communities Strategy following the end of current arrangements with Life Leisure in March 2022.

 

The Cabinet Member for Adult Care and Health (Councillor Jude Wells) attended the meeting to respond to Members’ questions.

 

The following comments were made/issues raised:-

 

·         A Member was supportive of the fact that Section 4 of the report on ‘Current Measures of Physical Activity in Stockport’ did not focus solely on sport and also included small changes to lifestyle and links to the Greater Manchester Cycling and Walking Strategy.

·         The over 75 population was the only demographic group where activity had increased over time and the Council had taken the lead with early intervention strategies targeting those who were likely to be inactive, particularly in the 40-60 years age group.

·         The lowest socio-economic group classification was the only demographic group where Stockport was more inactive than the Greater Manchester wide average. Officers were working with colleagues in Greater Manchester to explore the data. The recent publication of ‘Health Equity in England: The Marmot Review 10 years On’ had shown that life expectancy had failed to increase across the country, health inequalities had widened overall and the amount of time people spent in poor health had increased since 2010.

·         There needed to be a joined-up approach to the strategy. An increase in the pitch charges for football teams in the borough had taken place and it was clarified that the Playing Pitch Strategy was encompassed in the Active Communities Strategy.

·         Reference was made to paragraph 2.1 of the Implementation Plan and the provision of a range of green space and leisure facilities that were appealing and conducive for physical activity for all ages within the Borough. The facilities for young people were welcomed, for example the skate park in Marple Memorial Park.

·         The success of the skate park at Bredbury Memorial Ground had been because young people had been asked what facility they wished to have at the park and this has resulted in significant reductions in anti-social behaviour.

·         Most schools were part of the Stockport SHAPES Alliance which aimed to increase children and young people’s participation in high quality physical activity. The alliance worked on understanding the barriers to young people’s participation in physical activity.

·         Reference was made to work which had taken place on the development of replacement leisure facilities for Marple. A detailed final business case would be worked up to assess the full capital investment required.

·         The PACAP programme in GP practices to support the promotion of physical activity was commended. Concern was expressed that any future implementation would be digital rather than paper based as a significant number of older people were not IT literate.

·         With regard to Objective 4 ‘Identify, encourage and extend the range of support for our community groups that deliver programmes that promote physical activity’, reference should also be made, for example, to dance classes that met at the Town Hall and to Stockport Walkaday group which offered walks exploring parks and green spaces within Stockport.

 

RESOLVED – (1) That the report be noted.

 

(2) That the proposed new approach to a delivery partnership within the Active Communities Strategy be supported.
