Work to improve sports facilities at Sanatorium Park

Improvement works currently being carried out to Sanatorium Park are to reinstate the markings of two existing sports pitches; one football pitch, one rugby pitch with some fencing, spectator barriers and team dug outs added to the football pitch.

This is to provide sports facilities for both community users and pupils whilst the new Fitzalan High School development is completed. It will also deliver enhanced legacy amenities which will be available for use by the local community following the works, for future generations to enjoy. There will also be six more trees on the site than there are currently, when the work is completed.

The works will be completed by June 2020 and will not affect public access to the park.

Reinstating sports pitches is permitted development and does not require planning permission.

Planning permission for the enabling works associated with the new Fitzalan High School was granted on March 18, 2020.
