Sports village public consultation reaches end

TIME is running out for residents to have their say on plans for a new council-owned sports and leisure village in Scarborough.

The public consultation period, which has run for eight weeks, comes to an end on Monday.

Three draft development briefs were prepared in connection with the proposals, which would see the sports and leisure village built on land at the Weaponness car and coach park, with the existing Seamer Road football ground, the Filey Road Sports and Tennis Centre and the remaining land at the Weaponness site released for development to help fund the new leisure facilities.

Exhibitions of the plans have been held at St James’ Church Hall in Seamer Road, Scarborough Sports Centre in Filey Road, Falsgrave Community Centre and in the Town Hall.

The briefs and further details can be found at

Once this period has ended on Monday, the council will consider the comments received and look at adopting finalised versions of the briefs in autumn.
