New £200,000 3G Pitch Receives Planning Permission at Stanley Sports Hub

Accrington Stanley Community Trust have been granted planning approval by Hyndburn Council for a new small sided 3G Football Pitch.

The pitch will be constructed at the back of the building, on land that is currently unused space within the grounds of the sports hub due to a fire access path that had to be installed to comply with building regulations.

Following a successful building regulations application for repositioning the fire access, this proposal seeks to utilise the now available space. Current demand for pitches by local groups has meant there is now a need for a mini football pitch which would fit within the now available space.

Land to be used for this development – grass-crete system for fire access currently installed making it unusable

The new pitch will be used by a number of disabled groups of both children and adults, grassroots teams, community sessions for over 50’s, veterans’ sessions and after school provision. The community benefits of this pitch are enormous for participation in sport, and leading a healthy lifestyle.

This is a further investment of £200,000 into providing first class facilities for our local community, bringing the total investment at Stanley Sports Hub by Accrington Stanley Community Trust to £3.7m since 2020.

The construction of the pitch is due to commence in summer 2024 and available for use in September 2024.
