3G Artificial Pitch Proposals

Our team has recently been working on a number of proposals for 3G Artificial Pitches; including a combination of converting existing grass pitches to 3G, but also proposals for entirely new facilities on existing playing fields or brownfield sites.

Specifically, we have assisted Steve Wells Associates with projects at Euxton Villa FC, Leyland, Ossett Academy and Chadderton FC. We have also recently assisted Blackpool FC with their proposals for the Revoe Community Sports Village, adjacent to their Bloomfield Road stadium, to provide a new 3G artificial pitch and associated facilities for use, primarily, by their football foundation.

In each case, a Transport Assessment was prepared to support the planning application; typically focused on trip generation and demonstrating the suitability of car parking provision. Our experience of working across similar projects (yet each with its own challenges) has allowed us to build up a wealth of knowledge and data. We are then able to evidence this knowledge, ensuring we can deliver technically robust and cost-effective services on any new project.

Additional work has included vehicle tracking of proposed layouts, design of proposed access arrangements and responding to consultation responses on the applications from the local highway authority, to confirm and justify the suitability of the proposals in pursuit of planning permission being granted.

If you are looking to bring forward a similar development, please don’t hesitate to contact our team who will be happy to assist.
