Background

Planning Consultation Event

As you will be aware, our senior squad has recently turned professional and we have had a successful start to the new season.  We aim to get promoted from National League North this season and as a result need to upgrade and improve the playing and spectator facilities further to meet the Football Association’s requirements.

We have therefore developed comprehensive proposals for the ground to ensure we create a football ground which can be enjoyed by players, spectators and community groups who use our facility.

 
As a supporter, we value your opinion and wanted to make you aware that we are preparing a planning application which we aim to submit by the end of September 2017.  The following updates you on our plans for the CNG Stadium and explains how you can provide feedback on the plans.
 
The proposals comprise:
 
  • Regularisation of the 3G pitch;
  • A new two storey club house including changing rooms and corporate facilities in the north west corner of the grounds;
  • A new seated terrace at the eastern part of the grounds (ie the area currently occupied by the 1919 Bar) which will provide an opportunity to better attenuate and enclose noise from the pitch;
  • A new seated terrace to the north east which would replace the existing stand and provide classrooms to be used as community facilities;
  • An extension to the south stand (Wetherby Rd terrace) providing an extra 250 seats approximately;
  • Replacement of the existing tickets sales and office to the south west corner with a new office building; and
  • Provision of a new floodlighting scheme which will enable greater control of the lighting and replacement and re-positioning of existing lighting columns. The new lighting solution will be able to be dimmed for five a side matches rather than having to be at the same level for a first team match. Also, some of the existing lighting columns are not in an optimum location to prevent light spillage and the positioning of new columns will address this.
 
We aim to create a high quality football ground which the local community can be proud of and which supports our ambitions. We therefore invite you to view the proposals and to provide your comments and suggestions either at a consultation event at the ground or on-line. The event details can be seen below:
 
Date: Monday 11 September 2017
Time: 3.30pm to 7.30pm
Location: The 1919 Bar, CNG Stadium, Wetherby Road, Harrogate, HG2 7SA

Submit Your Feedback

The information will be available until 22 September with the deadline to submit comments set at 24 September 2017.
