Local Football Facility Plans

Ten year plan for the development of football facilities in Dorset

Local Football Facility Plans

Today (19 November 2020) marks an exciting milestone for grassroots football as the Premier League, The FA and Government's Football Foundation has announced the completion of the Local Football Facility Plans.

318 bespoke plans have been developed and outline what facilities every local authority area across England needs to meet the demand of football in their area.

For the first time, this country has a roadmap to invest and build what every community needs. And the benefits of the facilities set out in the Plans go far beyond the pitch. They transform communities and change lives for the better. It’ll mean more people can play our national game, physical and mental health can be improved, communities can grow stronger and young people become more empowered. 

But the Plans are just the first step. County FAs will now need to work with local authorities, partners and communities to turn these plans into reality. Everyone has their part to play. 

The LFFP will be the go to document for football facility investment in Dorset and will help to bring in key investment into the area. The Dorset County Football Association would like to extend our thanks to the Football Foundation, BCP Council, Dorset Council, Active Dorset and the many clubs and organisations that have contributed to the plans.

For further information on the plans please email Kath Purnell (Facilities & Investment Lead) on
