Pitch hours extended

PUBLISHED: 17:00 12 November 2010




AN APPLICATION to extend the operating hours of an artificial pitch at a Clevedon sport centre has been allowed to go ahead.

Residents living near Swiss Valley Sport Centre at Clevedon School raised concerns about the plans, which will also see the outdoor floodlights at the Valley Road site turned on for an extra hour, from 9pm to 10pm.

They feared the additional hour would cause noise and disturbance too late at night.

However, at a meeting of North Somerset Council’s north area planning committee on Thursday, it was agreed that the time extension would be allowed for a temporary six-month period to allow the council to monitor any complaints.
