Seafront games area moves closer
A NEW sporting facility could be created at a popular seafront area in Clevedon.
Clevedon Town Council is looking to install a multi-use games area (MUGA) at the Salthouse Fields which could be used for sports including basketball, netball and five-a-side football.
An agreement is due to be signed-off by North Somerset Council’s executive member for asset management, Tony Lake, to lease two disused tennis courts near to the entrance of Salthouse Fields to Clevedon Town Council for the creation of a MUGA.
The project has also gone out to tender this week, inviting companies to give quotes for the work.
Once Clevedon Town Council receives the prices from interested companies it will decide whether to build the facility. If the scheme goes ahead, it is hoped the MUGA could be installed by the end of the year.

The agreement with North Somerset Council would see Clevedon Town Council lease the tennis courts for 20 year, for which a nominal �1 annual rent would be paid.
The town council would be responsible for the construction, repair and maintenance of the site during the lease period.
