New 3G pitch? The planning notice at St Aidan's

This academy status school with approximately 2,500 students and a sixth form has applied for 'change of use' for an existing grassed football pitch.

If passed by Harrogate Borough Council's planning committee, St Aidan's would be in line to build a new 3G artifical grass pitch with perimeter fencing, floodlighting and a new access path.

The deadline for any residents wishing to comment on the school's new pitch at Harrogate Borough Council's planning portal on its website is Wednesday, January 9.
