The expansion and update will provide a high quality and safe sports changing room facility, which will be accessible to all. The facilities will be available for male and female teams, with the addition of two extra changing rooms.
The main design features will provide additional changing rooms in relation to the number of teams using the pitches and neighbouring tennis court facility. The improvements will enable female football to take place alongside male match fixtures and improve disability access to the facility, promoting inclusive sports.
Councillor John Ford, Chair of the Properties and Play Area Steering Group and Chair of Yate Town Council, commented, ‘This is a forward step, bringing the use of our sports facilities at Sunnyside to all genders and those with disabilities, in line with 21st century expectations.
MD Group’s Construction Director, Paul Coombe commented, ‘We are delighted to be working with Yate Town Council to deliver these exciting new facilities for the benefit of the wider local community.’
The upgrade works commenced on Monday 3rd September 2018 and are scheduled to complete during December 2018.
