Local communal infrastructures: the Region can subsidise the creation or renovation of local communal sports infrastructures (exercise equipment in parks, fitness trails, jogging paths, petanque courts, multi-sports fields, etc.). They must be close to the houses and have free access, i.e. open to everyone in a neighbourhood.
