Purpose of the Development Plan

The purpose of the development plan is to outline the objectives of the network. The Swim England London template is designed to provide guidance and support in the development of the plan and in turn the network’s objectives.

The Memorandum of Understanding or governing document for the network will help to direct the development plan in terms of:

  • The Network Statement covering the overview of the network.

Club Network Income and Expenditure Budget Book

Swim England London deems that a Club Network is sustainable when 100% of its costs can be directly met by the income generated solely by the Network itself. In this context, the word ‘directly’ means that the income should not be derived from a local authority, pool operator or any other organisation or key stakeholder.

Swim England London – Network Authorisation Committee (NAC)
