New sports village to be built
Rushcliffe Borough Council has agreed to a loan of up to £250,000 to help fund a new sports pavilion in East Leake.
The building will offer a contemporary new facility for the village and surrounding area’s sports teams and function room for community use.
The authority’s Cabinet approved the sum to East Leake Parish Council at its meeting on May 10 that will now help complete the ongoing project to modernise facilities for the new building at Costock Road Playing Fields in the village.
It is set to include new changing rooms, showers, toilets, a kitchen and bar area and two club rooms, replacing the existing wooden pavilion on the site.
The current base, which is home to several local sports teams, is in need of the refurbishment and the loan and the short-term advance to the authority has now been secured.
It will be repaid by the Parish Council after it receives external funding towards the £970,000 project.
