Public Sector Information Holder: Sport England
Information Asset: Active Places
The ActivePlaces website (and ActivePlaces power) has a great database of sports facilities in England. However, the website is dated and really lets it down. There is the ability to download the data (through ActivePlaces power), but access is only allowed for Government Departments, Governing bodies of sports, Lottery Distributors and other government organisations.
My ideal solution
I'd like to see the data released as a CSV, or, even better, as linked data
What I would do
Build a more up to date and user friendly front end for ActivePlaces with find my nearest functionality etc.
