Plans for The Bubwith Daily Mile and Children’s Cycling Area in Jeopardy

Official statement from the Bubwith Leisure and Sports Centre Committee Chair, Dr. Richard Moore.
“Plans for The #Bubwith Daily Mile and Children’s Cycling Area in Jeopardy
You may remember from previous issues our plans to establish a perimeter track around the playing field for a track for walking, running and cycling, leading to a pump track, BMX style, and cycling proficiency area at the southern end of the field for our parish children. There would be low-level illumination around the artificial grass track, and an extended terrace as part of the scheme. The football and cricket pitches would be re-positioned a little further south to accommodate these improvements, all part of the scheme for which we have so far raised £130,000 in external grants which are specific to these projects
Sadly for the scheme, the cricket club has, through the cricket authorities, raised an objection to the changes to the cricket pitch, an integral part of the scheme and which we see as an improvement. They would only be “losing” a two-foot strip of the outfield from the longer eastern boundary where it would be replaced by the artificial grass of the track. It is only used a few evenings a year for home matches, whereas the proposal would be available year-round.
A remote meeting is planned and we hope to convince the cricket authorities of the advantages of our plans for the cricket field and persuade them to drop their objection and embrace the rest of the plans which were developed in response to the survey we conducted in the 2020 lockdown and to which some of you will have contributed. The improvements proposed would benefit the whole village, all ages and sexes included.
Without a change of heart then, the whole scheme falls over, including the cycle area, and the grant money promised is lost, we think this would be a great shame. I am very happy to discuss any details with any interested party. The plans are available to view on the East Riding planning department site, reference 21/01907/PLF. If any of you wish to express views please log in to the East Riding of Yorkshire website and enter the reference to make your comment.
Alternatively email our volunteer treasurer Steve Young, who is also Clerk to the Parish Council who support the scheme. <> will forward your comments. The current committee is very demotivated by the probable loss of the scheme and would really value your support.
