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;
- The Rye Recreation Ground, OR
- Holman's Field
Consultation & Public Meeting
Full details of the proposals can be seen in the following (PDF) document:
