All-weather Training Pitch in Eaton Bray

Following an initiative from EB Lions, our village childrens' Football Club, Eaton Bray Parish Council (EBPC) is considering a proposal to build a community all-weather training pitch.

In 2011, a site in Bower Lane was deemed unsuitable by Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) planning officers. However the demand for such a facility was understood and supported.

In 2012, The Rye Recreation Ground was identified as an alternative site and following a public consultation, a successful planning application was made.

During and subsequent to the planning process there has been some local opposition to siting the facility at The Rye Recreation Ground. EB Lions have therefore suggested that Holman's Field, (the field behind Eaton Bray Academy, School Lane) also be considered.

Eaton Bray Parish Council is now undertaking a wider public consultation and invites parishioners of Eaton Bray to give their views on the proposal to build such a facility and the two possible sites under consideration;

a.The Rye Recreation Ground, OR
b.Holman's Field

Full details of the proposals can be seen on the Parish Council main page/council notice boards:

Public Consultation:
Eaton Bray electors are invited to write/email to the Parish Clerk. Please include your name and address with postcode, to enable the council to collate comments into areas of response.

Local residents are also invited to attend a consultation meeting to be held at Eaton Bray Village Hall on Monday 21st October at 7.30pm. The meeting will be attended by representatives of Eaton Bray Parish Council and EB Lions AFC who will be happy to address any questions or concerns.

All responses MUST be received
by the Parish Clerk NO LATER than
Friday 25th October 2013.
