Council Offers £235,000 Towards New 3G Football Pitch
21st Aug 2018
Tenterden Town Council's external committee has recommended funding 50 percent of the cost of a new 3G football pitch at Homewood School. This is in agreement with Ashford Borough Council who will allocate the amount from earmarked Section 106 funding (developers’ contribution to aspects of local infrastructure).
This would equate to approximately £235,000, with a similar sum being paid by Tenterden Schools Trust. The funding is dependent on the Homewood School pitch being fully available to local teams outside of school hours.
The decision marks the first step for the provision of new football facilities for the town, and progress is being made towards additional traditional grass pitches.
