Plans for a new multi-use games area (MUGA) with 15m-high floodlights at Leeds West Academy in Rodley have been given the green light by council planners.
Leeds West Academy, off Intake Lane, wants to provide a new all-weather pitch on an existing playing field to provide a year-round playing surface for pupils in PE lessons, recreation time and for wider community use.
The pitch will replace an area of natural grass playing field which becomes too muddy to use for a significant part of the school curriculum.
The use of the new all-weather facility will be restricted to between 8am-9pm and the new sporting facility shall be provided alongside patron access to the school’s cycle parking, changing and shower facilities.
The plans can be viewed in full here.
