Have your say on our design proposals for Brimmington Park

Closes 14 Oct 2019

Opened 11 Sep 2019

Overview

We are keen to involve people in shaping the improvements to Brimmington Park. 

The park currently has:

  • two 5-a-side synthetic surface football pitches that are in poor condition
  • a large hard surfaced play area
  • an outdoor gym
  • table tennis tables
  • a sport pavilion in the south, next to the football pitches  that  provides changing rooms and toilet facilities for the sports clubs that use the pitches.

The  Playing Pitch Strategy has identified a need for high quality all weather pitches in the borough. The council is investing in sports facilities at Brimmington Park and Burgess Park towards meeting this need. Better sports facilities will encourage more people to take part in physical activity.

To improve the facilities at Brimmington Park, we've drawn up a design proposal that will:

  • improve the changing room building by refurbishing or replacing it
  • replace the poor condition football pitches with new high quality all weather pitches
  • design out antisocial behaviour and encourage positive use of the park
  • add a new free open access ball court
  • improve the landscape through by adding more planting

The proposed new facility will include a dedicated reception with a controlled entrance. We will look to implement the council’s fees and charges for use of the new pitches which will contribute towards maintenance of the facility and staffing costs.

The full design proposal, and further information can be found in the link at the bottom of the page or at the link on question 7.

Please spare a few minutes to help shape our design proposals that aims to serve the needs of people who live, work or visit the park.
