Announcement:

Stop the council from replacing grass and trees with plastic and concrete

The council’s original proposal for a sports village on Hough End fields (planning application reference number 129948/VO/2021) was withdrawn over the summer after a huge public outcry.

They’ve now come back with revised plans which no longer include a softball & baseball complex – but they still want to rip up an area of grass and trees roughly the size of Old Moat park and cover it with plastic turf and concrete.

The planning consultation on the revised planning application (reference number 132513/VO/2021) is now open – please send in your objection by Tuesday 1st February!
