Application No. 16/03954/FUL Received:        21.11.16 Return by:       8.12.16
Location Testbourne Community School, Micheldever Road, Whitchurch, RG28 7JF
Proposal Construction of an external 3G Artificial Turf Pitch (ATP) with fencing, floodlighting, and a storage container
Response (Cllr J Wall declared an interest in this item, moved to the public gallery and took no part in the discussions.) Mr B Jackman, Chairman of Whitchurch United FC, addressed the meeting to voice his concerns over the siting of the artificial turf pitch alongside the Club’s boundary. This would mean that if the new pitch was in use no match could be played by the Club because of proximity (i.e. confusion over two referees’ whistles and instructions). He also pointed out that the proposals for installing drainage pipes connecting to an ‘existing’ rainwater system appeared to be flawed as there was no such system in existence. After a full discussion the consensus among Members was that whilst the 3G pitch was much needed, it would be sited in the wrong location.

Cllr A Jordan PROPOSED objection for the following reasons:

  • The current location is too close to the WUFC pitch
  • There appears to be inadequate drainage provision
  • It is unclear if the pitch is multi-use
  • The proposal as submitted crosses the new pupil access footpath coming from the new development
  • Local residents have not been consulted over the floodlighting installation.

SECONDED by Cllr A Klemz; the vote was unanimous.

Note: 16.12.16 – further response sent to BDBC. “Whitchurch Town Council previously objected to this application due to concerns on several issues.  However, following the receipt of further information and a meeting with the parties involved, those concerns have now been addressed to Members’ satisfaction and the Council wishes to WITHDRAW its previous objection, and fully supports the provision of a 3G Artificial Turf Pitch.”

BDBC Decision GRANTED
