How come the footballers are allowed floodlights and the skatepark isn't?

I think this is a fantastic idea and hope it gets the go-ahead for the benefit of these young children today and for many years to come. If only there had been something like this when I was growing up in the village, the Rye pitch was always bumpy and rubbish!

will there be any extra car parking for the users, following the last two saturdays where football has been held on the pitch the road has been full of cars in the Rye making passing, approching the juction a little hazardous

June 30, 2012, Paul Marshall, Chairman EB Lions says:

The recent football events that have been held at The Rye were exceptional due to The Green at Edlesborough being temporarily out of use for maintenance. There are provisions within the plans to improve and increase the numbers of off-road parking spaces.

I don't disagree with the village green being used for chidrens football. But how do the parish council stand legally with fencing off part of a village green? Are they charging rent? Also since the green belongs to the villagers, how would I stand if I walk my dog across the fenced off area. Would I be trespassing on my own land?
