In this category lies community needs, dual use facilities,participation rates, and local authorities as ‘enablers’. A mixed method approach was adopted to extract data from a semi structuredinterview and from questionnaires. This allowed for a broader opinion into the research topic and for data to be potentially matched. Findings from both forms of research technique shows Monmouthshire placing a strong emphasis on voluntary run sports clubs in order to promote and develop a sporting culture within the County.
