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.

Co-operative Retail Services Ltd 6 Beagle Ridge Drive York YO24 3JQ

Replacement of existing refrigeration plant and redecoration of shopfront 

Ref. No: 19/02476/FUL 

The planning application states, “The proposed replacement plant is to facilitate ongoing sustainability initiatives within the Co-op Group providing smaller, quieter, and more efficient plant across local convenience stores. The shop front redecoration work is to facilitate ongoing sustainability initiatives within the Co-op group providing maintenance, upkeep and branding requirements across the local stores.

The new replacement plant will have minimal visual impact on site as it is to be installed within the existing fenced compound at the existing location to the rear service yard. The shop front redecoration will improve the visual impact on site providing freshness to the existing deteriorating and discolouring paintwork to the façade, window and door frames”.

Indoor tennis centre seeks planning permission in York

York St John University is seeking planning permission to replace the existing two outdoor tennis/netball courts with thee indoor tennis courts at the Mille Crux Sports Park at Haxby Road.

New tennis centre building

The application site comprises of an area occupied by two macadam surfaced outdoor courts to the east of the existing Hub building and sports hall. The courts are used for netball and tennis and are enclosed by 3m fencing and illuminated by 6 floodlights on 10m high masts. The site also includes a strip of playing field to the south of the courts and a section of the footpath to the north of the courts.

The application, which is recommended for approval, is being considered by the local planning committee on 5th December

York St John say they will implement a broad ranging Tennis Development Plan that will help support and maximising tennis participation at the facility for University students and local players of all ages and ability. The Plan will ensure the new facility will secure year round benefits to tennis in York across a wide range of areas, including;

  • A student tennis programme providing sessions for players of all standard from recreational tennis to BUCS team matches
  • An indoor coaching programme encompassing mini and junior tennis through to adult coaching
  • Development of effective links with local schools, providing opportunities for children to try tennis, and participate in programmes and competitions
  • Establishing weekly disability coaching sessions and competitions in connection with the York Disability Tennis Network
  • Enhance existing tennis programmes/clubs in the area, including the provision of access to local clubs through the winter
  • Providing an all year round competition venue, giving players within York and the surrounding area more competitive opportunities and providing a central venue for events
  • Providing a facility to host coaching education courses, and establishing and managing a workforce with the skills to facilitate tennis  development

The university have worked in partnership with the Lawn Tennis Association and the scheme has been partially funded by them.

The Council says that it is considered appropriate to attach a condition securing adequate community use of the facilities.
