The committee considered the written report and the recommendation for approval.

 

The officer drew the committee’s attention to the supplementary matters where no objections had been received following the end of the consultation period.

 

The committee was addressed by the following deputee:

 

(1)  Cllr Butler addressed the committee as the local ward councillor.

 

The site was a good example of how the community and partner organisations had worked together.  The grass football pitch had been so well used that the grass had not survived and the residents had fundraised £25K to install Astro Turf.

 

Last Summer, there had been issues with stray footballs breaking windows of nearby properties.  Further money had been raised using a variety of funds and grants including Petersfield Town Council, the South Downs National Park Authority, Radian and Councillor Community grants from Hampshire County Council and East Hampshire District Council in order to install the roof net over the pitch.  The facility was available for everyone to use and enjoy and this proposal would ensure those living nearby were able to have the quality of life they deserved.

 

The committee were supportive of the proposal and felt that the facility was a great asset to the community.

 

The committee voted on the officer’s recommendation for approval.

 

Following the vote, the recommendation was declared CARRIED, 9 Councillors voting FOR approval, no Councillors voting AGAINST approval and no Councillors ABSTAINING from voting.
