ANDBC Council – Sports Hubs
This assignment required Copius to undertake a robust and comprehensive economic appraisal of the potential to develop sports hubs in the Donaghadee and Holywood areas on behalf of Ards and North Down Borough Council. Working closely with core stakeholder sports clubs in each this work identified a range of potential development options that met the needs of the sports clubs, wider community access and use, potential ANDBC sports development benefits, and the opportunity to the develop a destination for other Borough residents. Aspects of particular importance included the development of appropriate and acceptable management and governance options, as well as, identification of a preferred option that represented value for money investment by ANDBC in sporting infrastructure across the Donaghadee and Holywood.
Many investment decisions are made by both Local and Central Government following the completion of economic appraisals, strategic outline cases & business cases. We have completed over 500 individual appraisals over the past 15 years, the majority of those linked to capital development projects and larger revenue based projects.
