Plans for artificial grass pitch in Yeovil move closer

South Somerset District Council plans to develop a new Artificial Grass Pitch at Yeovil Recreation Centre moved a step closer last week after the Somerset County Council Regulation Committee rejected the application to register Yeovil Recreation Centre as a Town or Village Green.

The decision comes following the submission of the application by a number of local residents to which the council objected on the basis that there was no legal justification to support the registration of what was, effectively, an existing fully managed and controlled public recreational facility.

A further Public Inquiry into the proposed diversion of two public footpaths at Yeovil Recreation Centre will now commence in January 2013, which if approved, will enable construction of the new Pitch to commence.
