Sports pitches - 401/19

Date Responded 28 March 2019

Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.

You asked:

  1. approximately how many (if any) sports pitches are contained on sites owner or managed by your police authority
  2. how many groundskeepers are directly employed to maintain these pitches
  3. how much is spent annually on maintaining these pitches
  4. if contracted out, how much any contracts to maintain these pitches are worth

Reasonable estimates for all of the above would be fine, I know you may not have exact numbers but any idea of the scale would be appreciated.

In Response:

I can confirm that the information you have requested is not held by Northumbria Police.

Northumbria Police neither manage or own any sports pitches.
