3G Pitch Planning Application For Creasey Park


Dunstable Football Club, Creasey Park Drive
Application: CB/20/01100/FULL
Creation of an Artificial Grass Pitch (AGP) with new fencing, floodlighting, maintenance storage container, hard standing pathways and ancillary features

Planning permission has been applied to create a new external Artificial Grass Pitch (AGP) at Creasey Park Community Football Centre.  The development site has been included within the FAs Local Football Facility Plan and CBC playing pitch strategy as a strategic need for further 3G football sports provision.

Pitch and associated access paths would be located where the blue lines are.

The proposed Artificial Grass Pitch (AGP) will replace and result in the loss of a current grassed football pitch.

Also proposed are new open steel mesh ball stop fencing and entrance gates around the entire pitch perimeter enclosing the AGP. These would be 4.5m above ground level.

The proposed floodlight system comprises six masts mounted with sixteen luminaires at a height of 15m high above ground level to the AGP in a 2no. / 4no. / 2no. arrangement (16no. in total) along North Eastern and South Western longitudinal sides of the AGP.

The Design and Access Statement explains more in fuller detail.

All relevant application documents are available on the CBC Planning Portal.

Dunstable Town Council will be looking at this on the 21 April (remote Plans meeting, you need to email david.ashlee@dunstable.gov.uk to request to watch their meeting live before 5pm on the 17th April). The decision making body is CBC.  A date for a decision is unclear at the present time.
