Following the last Cabinet meeting, Councillor Jane March, portfolio holder for Leisure & Tourism has asked that the fees for youth football pitch hire be reduced after listening to the community response.
Explaining why she had asked for the reduction, Councillor Jane March, Culture, Leisure & Tourism portfolio holder said: ‘Hearing people’s responses after the Cabinet meeting, I felt it was very important that we should keep all increases in line, and so I have asked that the youth pitch charge is reduced accordingly. The Council values sport and health for all ages and we wouldn’t wish to discourage teenagers from participating.’
The Council’s Cabinet members have agreed that the increase for youth football pitch fees for 2019/2020 will be set at £39, an increase of £2 on the current charge of £37.
