Plans for artificial practice net facility and fencing have been submitted by Rodley Cricket Club.
Chairman Steven Bradbury said the proposals would enhance playing and practice facilities available for cricketers aged from five years old into their 50s.
The proposed site is to the south of the sports ground and protected by trees and shrubbery. In a planning statement accompanying the planning application to Leeds City Council. Mr Bradbury said:
“The requirement for artificial practice facilities away from the main cricket playing surface arises from the substantial increase in junior and senior members in recent years which has substantially increased the number of fixtures hosted and players desiring to practice.”
The area will include a concrete base and artificial grass.
The application is being submitted following consultation with the Landowner, Wades Charity, and Leeds City Council Parks and Countryside. Rodley Cricket Club currently manage the entire site, off Moss Bridge Road, following the agreement of a long-term lease.
