The best way to keep up to date with Brixham RFC


Astley Park - Grounds news!

6 months ago By David Peck

Erection of sports field floodlight gets a unanimous OK from Torbay Development Management Committee - with conditions

Although a favourable result for Brixham RFC, the club will at all times endeavour to amicably resolve any issues arising from its ground amenities and their usage within the local community and neighbourhood.

The Development Management Committee concluded:

... on the basis of the limited hours that the floodlights would be used the proposed development would not have an adverse effect on the amenity of nearby occupiers or biodiversity and would not harm the appearance and character of the area, therefore the proposed development is considered to be appropriate for planning approval, having regard to all national and local planning policies and all other relevant material considerations ... with the following condition: The floodlights hereby approved shall only be used between 17:45 to 20:00 on Wednesdays.

Please note, the photo shown in this news item is not a true representation of the actual floodlight as referred to in the Application.
