County council insists that any Estover development is accompanied by good quality sports facilities
I NOTICE from your articles and subsequent letters the level of concern regarding Fenland District Council’s consultation on development in the North of March.
I am glad that the residents of March have engaged with the council to input their thoughts into the process and trust they will be listened to.
As a county councillor our interests lie in Estover field and I want to reassure residents that Cambridgeshire County Council is committed to providing good quality football and sports facilities in the Estover Road area of March.
Furthermore these need to be well planned and sustainable so they benefit both current and future generations.
This is why I asked the county council and the FA to carry out a report to look at football provision in March, including the future of Estover playing field.
This report demonstrated a real lack of quality football facilities in March, particularly at Estover Road, something many of us already knew.
But what this report has provided is the vital evidence necessary for all parties to use in master planning for the growth areas.
