In recent years sport has emerged as a catalyst of regeneration However much focus has. been on event related regeneration with the use of smaller scale sports infrastructure for. this purpose receiving less attention This paper focuses on the contribution of community. sports hubs to urban regeneration Using evidence from a case study of Orford Jubilee. Neighbourhood Hub OJNH in the UK it examines the intended sporting economic social. environmental outcomes of the project and evaluates whether these are being achieved. The paper argues that although there is evidence to suggest that as a sustainable sports. facility OJNH is achieving its sporting objectives the regeneration impacts of the project are. more variable The paper concludes that while community sports hubs have the potential. to create wider societal benefits there is a need for further evidence to support the case. and leverage maximum benefits for the local community in the longer term.

Introduction, Economic and social change over the last fifty years in the UK has resulted in significant and. profound changes to the urban environment with many post industrial towns and cities. experiencing economic social and physical decline Urban regeneration has evolved as a. central government policy response across successive administrations with many. geographical areas subsequently becoming the focus of wide ranging regeneration. programmes and initiatives Urban regeneration through leisure has emerged as a critical. feature of the post modern city of consumption with sports events sports infrastructure. and sports programmes becoming increasingly important in facilitating this Tallon 2013. The use of sport to generate wider benefits to society is not a new phenomenon and has. been recognised for over twenty years see Coalter 2007 Gratton and Henry 2001. Historically sport was seen as superfluous to the process of regeneration rather than a. central component of regeneration strategies Pack and Glyptis 1989 Furthermore it was. largely seen as part of the broader remit of culture led regeneration Bianchini 1991 Jones. and Evans 2008 However since the 1990s sport has increasingly developed credibility as. a contributor to and driver of regeneration in its own right within the UK and in other. developed nations Davies 2010, Three broad approaches to sport related regeneration have emerged primarily driven by. events venues infrastructure and programmes interventions Globally mega event related. regeneration is probably the most widely recognised approach with high profile examples. in the UK including the London 2012 Olympic Games and Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth. Games Nevertheless there are many examples of sports infrastructure including large. scale sports stadia such as Wembley and smaller scale community facilities in towns and. cities across the UK built for sporting and urban regeneration purposes Additionally there. are various examples of localised programme led sports initiatives implemented to enhance. participation and target specific social and economic outcomes in disadvantaged. communities, The development of community sports hubs. The mid 1970s and early 1980s were a boom period for public leisure provision in the UK. However much of that stock is now aging and requiring rationalisation and new investment. Sport England 2015 Taylor 2011 Sport England the non departmental public body. responsible for community sport in England recognised the need for modern sustainable. community sports facilities and favoured an approach based on the concept of community. hubs Sport England 2008a This concept embraced the ideology of. Public private investment packages and management partnerships that link sport. and active recreation with commercial activities allied with contributing to wider. social policy areas such as health childcare provision and lifelong learning Sport. England 2014a 2, Community hubs are characterised by the co location of community services with revenue. streams alongside sports facilities which form the heart of infrastructure developments. In the context of wider shifts in UK sports policy towards investment in sport for wider. societal good Houlihan and Lindsay 2013 King 2009 the development of community. sports hubs are seen as providing regeneration potential for urban land and existing under. performing sites particularly parks and open spaces and the replacement of existing stock in. need of modernisation Sport England 2008b This regeneration potential also provides. opportunities for key strategic partnerships to be formed with national regional and local. agencies to leverage urban funds for the development of sport. Contribution to literature and paper outline, With the emergence of sport as a facilitator of regeneration there has been a growth in.
literature particularly on sports events and urban regeneration Davies 2012 Fussey et al. 2012 Matheson 2010 Paramio Salcines 2014 Smith 2010 However the contribution of. sports infrastructure to the regeneration process has received less attention Much of the. literature on sports infrastructure is based upon the North American experience and focuses. on the analysis of short term economic impacts of large scale stadia Davies 2010 Thornley. 2002 Within the international literature there is limited analysis of the wider economic. social physical and environmental regeneration outcomes generated by smaller scale sports. This paper attempts to address the identified gap in the literature by examining the. contribution of community sports hubs to regeneration It presents a case study of Orford. Jubilee Neighbourhood Hub OJNH in Warrington which opened in 2012 and is the first. community sports hub to be developed in the UK The paper firstly sets the context for the. case study by discussing the synergies between sport and urban policy and the theoretical. chain of relationships that leads to the creation of longer term regeneration impacts though. investment in sport The main section of the paper then examines the intended sporting. and regeneration objectives of OJNH and using primary and secondary data from key. stakeholders explores the extent to which these are being achieved In conclusion the. paper reflects on the potential value of community sports hubs for urban regeneration and. the key research considerations for leveraging maximum opportunities from community. sports infrastructure in the future, Delivering regeneration through sport. Urban regeneration is a term that has become widely used in policy discourse and. numerous academics have debated how it is defined and what it encompasses for example. see Jones and Evans 2008 Roberts and Sykes 2000 Tallon 2013 Smith 2012 suggests. that regeneration is not only a policy term but one that is used with the discourses of place. marketing and property speculation as well as everyday language Furthermore he argues. that there is a distinction between academic definitions of the term the way it infuses. policy discourses and popular representations Smith 2012 8 with few examples of. regeneration cited by key stakeholders matching academic definitions. While it is not the intention of this paper to repeat these debates here it is necessary to. indicate that in the context of this paper the term urban regeneration will be used in its. broadest sense to include not just the physical redevelopment and reconstruction of an. area but to include the economic social and environmental transformation of urban areas. Jones and Evans 2008 Roberts and Sykes 2000 In the context of urban policy it is also. used to refer to the long term lasting transformation of an area that has previously suffered. some sort of degeneration It therefore follows that sport related regeneration refers to the. way that sport can be used to revitalise an area economically socially environmentally and. physically with sport defined from The European Sports Charter as. all forms of physical activity which through casual or organised participation aim. at expressing or improving physical fitness and mental well being forming social. relationships or obtaining results in competition at all levels Council of Europe. Converging sport and urban policy in the UK A brief historical overview. Previous to the 1990s sport and urban policy in the UK were considered to be relatively. separate spheres of public policy with the focus of sport policy being on sports participation. performance and the delivery of services to facilitate this and the focus of urban policy on. tackling issues related to urban development regeneration and deprivation Through the. 1990s it was increasingly recognised largely by John Major s Conservative government that. sport could contribute to a variety of other mainstream agendas within society Coaffee. 2008 Houlihan and Lindsay 2013 The increasing recognition of the wider benefits of sport. resulted in a twofold change in policy with an emerging and increasing presence of sport. within urban policy rhetoric and a reorientation of sports policy to address broader issues. of regeneration Davies 2010 This coincided with a growing dissatisfaction of the. property led model of regeneration and the acknowledgement that communities within. areas targeted by such regeneration policy were not experiencing the benefits from the. trickle down effect Moreover that urban regeneration is a multi faceted rather than. economic problem and that more stakeholders should be involved in its implementation. Tallon 2013, The emergence of sport as a serious urban regeneration policy driver was particularly seen. under the New Labour government from 1997 onwards The New Labour approach to. regeneration exhibited a number of characteristics which were reflected in subsequent. policy initiatives including sub national intervention at the regional and neighbourhood. levels community involvement in regeneration programmes and joined up governance with. a social welfare focus and emphasis on partnership working above departmental silos. Tallon 2013 The creation of the Social Exclusion Unit SEU to address issues of poverty. deprivation and social exclusion and the establishment of Policy Action Teams PAT and in. particular PAT 10 which focused on the contribution of sport and the arts to. neighbourhood renewal DCMS 1999 were instrumental in highlighting the potential role. of sport for achieving holistic regeneration Similar developments were observed in the. sports policy arena from 2000 onwards where there was a clear shift to reflect investment in. sport for wider societal good King 2009 outlines how sport policy from this period was re. orientated to take into account greater symbiotic links between sport and wider non sport. agendas such as health education and social inclusion and encourage thematic and. partnership working to establish mutual benefits across policy sectors e g DCMS Strategy. Unit 2002 Sport England 2004 This was particularly evident at the regional spatial scale. with partnership working between Sport England the Department of Culture Media and. Sport DCMS the Regional Development Agencies RDAs and Government Offices for the. English Regions GOR Under the Labour administration funds for sports initiatives were. subsequently leveraged from a range of high profile urban initiatives including the Single. Regeneration Budget the New Deal for Communities Neighbourhood Renewal Fund. Building Schools for the Future BSF and Private Finance Initiatives PFI. Since the election of the Conservative Liberal Democrat coalition government in 2010 there. have been considerable changes to the landscape of urban regeneration in the UK Set in. the context of the global economic downturn since 2007 and the related contraction of the. private sector and wider public expenditure reductions the Public Bodies Bill and the. Localism Bill in 2010 outlined a number of changes to the regional policy landscape. including the state led restructuring of sub national economic governance and regeneration. National Archives 2014 Purgalis 2011 Amongst the more significant of these changes for. sports investment was the abolition of the RDAs and their replacement with Local Enterprise. Partnerships LEPs which are intended to be more locally owned partnerships responsible. for setting the local economic agenda driving economic growth and creating jobs. Historically the RDAs were a key funding partner of sport related regeneration schemes but. at present there is little indication that the LEPs will take over this role A viewpoint shared. by an interviewee of this research, there is no real like for like direct replacement for RDA resources for sport and. likewise for the GOR funds the LEPs are not coming forward as a major substitute. for any of that there are really precious little crumbs at the LEP table for sport.
