CCYFC - New Pitch Campaign
Chorleywood Common is a successful youth football club who has seen its membership grow year on year. Recently obtaining the FA Charter Standard. Plus running a soccer school for 5+6 yr olds. We submitted plans to Three Rivers District Council to grant us the use of extra land for 3 more pitches and a new car park. This was turned down with some very feeble reasons. "We would create a noise nuisance to the nearby house" "The car park would urbanize an area of outstanding beauty" (that already has a phone mast) !! "There are plants of special interest in the field we wish to use" We have done our best to work with the council on each of the objections, we would ONLY use the field on Sunday mornings.How much of a nuisance is that to a house 100 meters away The Council know any car park can easily be formed from materials which are in keeping with the natural surroundings. We are carrying out a nature study on the field in question to show it is no more special than the remaining 70 acres in Chorleywood House Grounds, we ONLY require 7 acres, plenty left for dog walkers, ramblers and plants. We now ask for your support as we formally appeal against their rejection. Help us to keep more youngsters healthy, fit (now a Government aim) and off the streets.
