FAIR PLAY FOR ALL. A STUDY OF ACCESS TO SPORT AND INFORMAL RECREATION

The aim of this study is to ascertain, from existing sources, the extent to which personal mobility and the accessibility of recreational opportunities are related to the recreational activity and travel of different groups in the population. Chapters 1 and 2 first describe what is known about participation in active recreation and about personal mobility, and then explore the relationship between them. The travel patterns of different people are examined in chapters 3-5. Chapter 6 examines the approach of land use and transport policies in their consideration of the accessibility of recreational opportunities and of travel to them. Chapter 7 covers the functions and duties of the bodies associated with the provision and management of facilities, and reports on discussions with people involved in recreational research and practice about isssues of mobility, accessibility and travel. Chapter 8 reviews the coverage of these issues in recreational research and policy documents, and the methodology employed in assessing demand for recreation. Conclusions and recommendations are provided in the last chapter. (TRRL)
