Andrew has provided an update on the new Broughton all weather football and games area.
Andrew reports, "Residents may remember that I previously worked with North Lincs Council to secure £600,000 to create a new all weather 3G football and sports pitch (MUGA) for Broughton.
"This is all part of our local commitment to improve and enhance leisure and sports facilities locally, such as the Ancholme Trail and the refurbishment of local leisure centres and play parks. The project has been some time in the making but it has now taken a step forward and residents should be receiving a letter from me on this progress this week.
"In short, a formal planning application has now been submitted for the new all weather pitch, parking and grassed area along with lighting on an area of land next to the Phil Grundy Centre, Scawby Road. This application replaces the previously determined application on the playing field next door to the centre.
"If you would like to provide your feedback/support or other comments on this application, please contact the planning team at: firstname.lastname@example.org, and feel free to copy me in at email@example.com. Please remember to quote the planning reference number: PA/2021/546.
"The new applicant is the Broughton Community and Sports Association (BCSA), which is a local charity whose objective is to improve sports and leisure facilities in the Broughton area. My office is actively working to support the BCSA charity to support them accessing the funding set aside by North Lincs Council for the project, as well as access other funding too.
"This is yet another promise kept by the local Conservative team and as the only team that works hard and keeps in touch all year round, residents can be assured I will keep you updated."
