Any new leisure and recreational facilities have to be appropriately located. Currently there is a proposal for Rugby and hockey facilities at Broke Hill. This is on the very edge of Sevenoaks council's area and will be poorly located for most residents of Sevenoaks. Conversely, it is also located only 2 miles from an existing rugby club (Westcombe Park, who have facilities near Goddington Park). The council must look beyond its own boarders when considering where to located leisure and recreational facilities. There is no value in placing them next to existing facilities of a neighbouring council.
