Business Planning and Feasibility Studies

Business Plans – Leisure Futures' consultants have extensive experience in evaluating the needs of organisations and preparing business plans to address their priority needs.

Examples of clients for whom Leisure Futures have prepared business plans include: ‘Kick It Out’, the campaigning organisation to kick racism out of football; The Royal Parks Agency for whom we prepared the Operational Business Plan for the Regents Park Hub Active England project; Islington Council who we advised on the operational management and revenue implications of a swimming pool and sports hall at The Holloway School Sports College; and North Dorset District Council who we advised on business planning for the Blandford Leisure Centre.

Leisure Futures has also assisted the Amateur Rowing Association with a survey of its member clubs to inform its current National Plan for Rowing.

Feasibility Studies – Leisure Futures has been responsible for a large number of feasibility studies for sports facility projects often working in partnership with sports building design consultants.

One example is Weymouth & Portland Borough Council for whom Leisure Futures and Saville Jones Architects prepared a study into the feasibility of refurbishing and sustaining a former naval sports centre on Portland and for future operation under local trust management. Another is Oswestry Borough Council in Shropshire where the same consultant team carried out a feasibility study with options appraisals for a replacement sports centre. Both these studies have resulted in increased access to higher quality sports facilities for local communities.

Also with Saville Jones Architects, Leisure Futures has advised Epsom & Ewell Borough Council on the feasibility of options to upgrade the front of house at the Epsom Playhouse.

Working with architects Poynton Wynter Bradbury Cole, Leisure Futures advised Devon County Council on the feasibility of a County Centre of Excellence for Sport including a regional cycling facility.
