School to get artificial grass play area despite objections

0

PLANNING chiefs have given the go-ahead for an artificial grass multi-use games area on part of the existing sports field at St Monica’s RC Primary School, Appleton.

Members of Warrington Borough Council’s development management committee approved the proposal despite objections from three nearby residents.
The objectors were concerned about additional noise, particularly as the new games area would be used between 8am and 6pm – longer than the school day.

They also believed the play area should be screened by the planting of trees and shrubs
There also concerns about flooding which already occurs on the site and some residents suggested similar facilities already available at the nearby Broomfields Leisure could be shared.
But planning officers recommended the scheme be approved.
They pointed out that no existing sports pitches would be lost and that there would be no adverse impact on nearby properties.
