Lesley Hill

Healthy Placemaking and Active Design Lead

As the Healthy Placemaking and Active Design Lead, Lesley will be the ABC strategic lead for facility development and active design in the region.

She will use her expertise in the power of sport and physical activity, facility development and relationship management to work with partners to raise physical activity levels through supporting high quality infrastructure across built and natural environments. Ensuring physical activity is more embedded into local thinking, development and design of facilities and places that get Black Country residents active and playing sport.

Lesley has a broad range of strategic, operational and partnership knowledge developed by working in the sport and leisure sector for many years which she’s acquired working for Swim England (the National Governing Body for aquatics) in various roles including Head of Strategic Partnerships. She’s managed key stakeholder relations with an extensive partner base including local authorities, private and commercial leisure companies such as David Lloyd Leisure, Nuffield Health and has worked with a range of partners amongst others Disney, Housing Associations and Sport England.
