Below are the latest planning application received by the York Council for the Westfield ward.
Full details can be found by clicking the application reference
Acomb Sports and Social Club, The Green, York
| Erection of single storey recreational building with associated external works and car parking
Ref. No: 19/02690/FUL
This application has not formally been publicised yet, but details are on the Councils planning web site.
If approved it would see the York Bridge Club move from their premises in Holgate into Westfield. As such it would be the first new leisure facility that the area would gain after a decade which has seen the closure of several local amenities including the bowling club, football pitches at Lowfields, the multi user games area etc.
The single storey building itself is unlikely to be controversial but the site selected is currently allocated, in planning documents, as open sports space. It was last used as tennis courts some 20 years ago.
If the Bridge Clubs current premises in Holgate Road were to be converted into residential accommodation, then it is likely that this would weigh in the balance.
A planning decision is likely in the spring.
Representations can be made in favour of, or in objection to, any application via the Planning on line web site.http://planningaccess.york.gov.uk/online-applications/
