Aberdeenshire Council reverse your decision to increase charges for sports facilities

This petition had 1,473 supporters


Aberdeenshire council have decided to greatly increase the cost of using their sports facilities over the next three years.

Users will see up to 20% increase from this April, then 50% of current prices from April 2018, then a increase of 80% from April 2019.

Sports clubs are to see similar increases, resulting in a near doubling of fees by 2019.

At a time when funding to Sport in Scotland is falling, family incomes are falling and a quarter of our children are obese, greatly increasing the cost to access sports facilities seems like another retrograde step.  

We ask that Aberdeenshire Council reverse these price increases, and start to think about the short and long term effect on the social, economic and health of our population.
