Further Information

Exeter and Cranbrook is one of 12 national Sport England Local Delivery Pilots (LDP). Sport England is investing around £100 million over 4 years to create innovative solutions that make it easier for people to become physically active for life.

We have a strong local vision for Exeter and Cranbrook to be pioneering places for leading an active lifestyle. Exeter will become the most active city in England and Cranbrook will be a model of best practice in encouraging families to be active together.

The objective of the pilot is to encourage 10,000 of our least active residents to build physical activity into everyday life. Our longer term aims are to:

• Narrow stubborn health inequality by encouraging the lease active to become active for life

• Improve inclusivity and sense of community connectivity and belonging.

• Reduce congestion and improve air quality influenced by more people walking and cycling.

• Use integrated data to inform decisions and share learning.
