How frequently does Active Places data get updated?

Active Places records are maintained via a combination of a third party (Adetiq) who are contracted by Sport England to collect, validate, and maintain sport facility data in addition to individual facility owners and managers who have taken responsibility to self-maintain and update information on their own facility records.     

Adetiq contacts all sites on a rolling annual update cycle. This ensures most records are no more than a year old with the aim that all records that are self-maintained are no more than 18 months old.   Individual facility owners and managers may update a record on a more frequent basis to reflect changes at a site.

As updates are collected, they are processed to the live database and immediately available within the Active Places Power website.  Prior to 2nd November 2015 updates were made available on a weekly basis.
