Back in 2010 Rayleigh Boys Youth Football Club got planning permission for 8 sports pitches in Old London Road Rawreth. When they got permission , there was a condition that the pitches could only be used on Sundays, and on 8 Saturdays per year. The club are now applying to change that to all day Saturdays and Sundays and 17:00 to 20:00 Mondays to Fridays.
The application number is 14/00900/FUL and you can find it here.
When they got permission last time, there were strong local objections on the grounds of noise and nuisance (plus some other issues), and there could well be local objections to this great increase in hours proposed. As always District Councillors are not allowed to make their minds up in advance of a planning meeting.
It’s worth mentioning that the club wrote a lengthy letter to Rawreth Parish Council before they submitted their application, explaining what they were going to do. That courtesy was much appreciated, and will certainly help maintain good communications between the club and the parish council (whatever view the parish council take towards the application).
