New group will focus on future sports facilities
3:00pm Tuesday 10th December 2013 in News
A NEW working party has been formed to look into Witney’s sporting facilities after a town council meeting.
Witney Town Council decided to dissolve the West Witney Working Party and replace it with a new one called the Sports Facilities Working party.
Its role will be to investigate the proposals of consultants Sports Solutions GB.
It will put recommendations to the council and hold a public consultation.
Sports Solutions suggests investing £2.6m in the town’s existing sports facilities rather than selling off West Witney Sports Ground for housing and building a new leisure complex at Downs Road.
It said the bulk of the spending required, £1.1m, should go on new changing and social facilities at West Witney.
It added that the King George V Field playing surfaces in Newland need a £30,000 investment.
