All Council sportsgrounds remain closed until further notice.

Council maintenance staff are working hard to make grounds available as soon as possible however the following factors are just some of the issues still affecting grounds:-
  • Significant number of trees and branches litter the facilities and pose a danger to ground users. Maintenance staff are working with contractors to clear the debris and trees as soon as possible
  • Power supplies are not confirmed for any grounds as electricians are currently undertaking works to ensure the Council’s water supply and that the sewer pump stations remain operational. Therefore we cannot guarantee availability of toilets/ changerooms and floodlighting
  • Communications with Council floodlights is also affected by the loss of a number of telecommunication stations which affects the usage of floodlighting
  • Ground conditions on most sportsgrounds are sodden due to the storm and subsequent rain on Saturday and Sunday.

Ensuring clubs get back on to the grounds is a high priority but we must first ensure the facilities are safe and functional before we can allow access. Your assistance and understanding in this matter is greatly appreciated.
