Sport England's Additional Comments, Planning App: 14/4208

These comments were submitted by Sport England following deferral of planning application 14/4208:

"Thank you for consulting Sport England on the additional information submitted.

Sport England is aware that local groups have shown an interest in reinstating the bowls club and former pavilion. Sport England would expect any approach made by local groups to continue using the facilities for their original sporting purpose, or some other sporting purpose to be given due consideration. Should there be a community need for the facility to remain in sporting (bowling) use, then paragraph 74 of the NPPF would suggest it be retained as such.

Other than the above, Sport England has no additional comments to make on this application."
