Work to transform sports facilities at Woodhall Playing Fields into a ‘Parklife’ community sports hub will finally start in ‘spring or early summer’ – more than three years after first being proposed.
Planning permission was granted in March 2022 for a new community sports hub with changing facilities, a community cafe, reception area and meeting rooms with associated car parking at Woodhall Playing Fields.
Calverley and Farsley councillor Amanda Carter has provided an update on the proposed facilities on social media. She said: “Trees and bushes are going to be pruned in mid-February for the commencement of the main construction on Woodhall Sports Hub site, which will begin this spring/early summer subject to all approvals being finalised and in place.
“This will make a huge difference to our area, with first-class playing fields, plenty of on site parking (to relieve parking on Woodhall Road), and there will be a hard surface all the way round the site for walkers and hopefully a café.”
