Sport England have sent a late representation to the Councils’ planning committee reaffirming their views on the future of the MUGA on Kingsway West.
They say that they HAVE NOT agreed to it being demolished.
Council officials, in a report to the committee, had given the impression that a holding objection had been withdrawn.
Now Sport England have unequivocally said that, if the existing MUGA is demolished, then a replacement facility must be provided nearby.
Such a facility must be available before the existing MUGA is demolished and must be available for public use.
The planning committee is meeting tomorrow (Thursday) at 4:30pm
