16/11/2021 - 3G Pitch Development at Lynnsport ref: 1059    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 16/11/2021 - Cabinet

Decision published: 18/11/2021

Effective from: 16/11/2021

Decision:

RESOLVED:            1)         The recommendations from the Environment and Community Panels were considered but Cabinet did not agree that additional consultation should take place as this would be carried out in full as part of the planning process.

 

2)            That the development of a 3G pitch at River Lane playing pitches, subject to planning permission be approved.

 

3)            That funding for the 3G pitch as set out in section 4 of the report be approved.

 

Reason for Decision

 

There is a need for an additional 3G pitch to be developed at Lynnsport in order to meet demand of the affiliated game.

 

Additional local demand for 3G provision is being generated by the growth of the Women and Girls football with participation increasing within the traditional affiliated female game. Walking football is also seeing a rapid participation growth.

 

Football is also a strong tool to improve community cohesion and improve local issues such as anti-social behaviour. A new 3G pitch would enable recreational football programmes to be delivered which could improve community cohesion and social engagement.

 

Cabinet gave full consideration to the recommendations from the Environment and Community Panel but did not agree with its recommendations as a consultation process would be undertaken as part of a planning application.
