Proposals for new village sports facility approved by council planners

SCALED-down plans for a multi-use games area (MUGA) at Georgeham have been approved by council planners.

The new village sports facility is being built on the playing field at Newberry Road.

The 20x12metre “Michigan Arena” will be situated in the south east corner of the playing field to the south of the main pitch and north of the existing car park.

A previous proposal was revised due to financial restraints forced on the council and the Playing Fields Association.

Plans for a tennis court are likely to be the subject of a future application when funds become available.
