Football Club and Sports facilities for the people of Hatfield

Dear residents and supporters of Hatfield,

We have an opportunity to significantly improve the local sports facilities for our local residents. We would like to take this opportunity to understand the sports facilities that would best serve you and your family.  We can then use your preferences to guide our decision making for the future. Right now there is funding available to build a new football ground and we would really appreciate your thoughts on the subject. Please complete the five questions below.

Caron Juggins – Leader of Hatfield Town Council says;-

“It is generally recognised that there has long been a need for a football ground to serve the Hatfield community and the town’s aspiring football clubs.  The last ground serving Hatfield’s senior football teams was demolished in 1984.  Replacement facilities were required through the signing of a Section 106 planning agreement with the university, this is now known as the Sport Specific Major Grant Project Fund (SSMGPF) but in essence the parameters remain the same.

As leader of Hatfield Town Council I am committed, along with all my cross party colleagues, to ensuring that we move forward on bringing to fruition the dream of a football and sports hub at Birchwood.
