Sports & Leisure Village Development Briefs Consultation
The period for this survey
has now ended. The analysis of the survey is now taking place
and results will be posted on the website shortly.
The consultation is being undertaken by the Borough Council’s
Planning Service in close cooperation with other service areas. It
will inform the final version of the 3 Development Briefs,
which it is the ultimate intention to adopt as guidance for
made in the Council’s role as Local Planning Authority.
The consultation relates to three Consultation
Drafts of the Development Briefs that have been prepared to guide
the future development of the Council owned Weaponness Valley,
Filey Road Sports Centre and Seamer Road Football Ground sites.
They are part of a Council led project, the aim of which is to
provide a new football ground and new sports and leisure village
for the town.
Following the outcome of commissioned studies
and consultation events undertaken between 2007 and 2009, the
Council propose to develop a new single site football ground and
multi – use sports and leisure hub on the site of the former
Weaponness Park and Ride facility, Ashburn Road, Scarborough The
Council propose to work with a private sector partner on the
delivery of the project. This will involve an ‘enabling development
approach’ whereby a developer will develop Weaponness Valley in
exchange for the Seamer Road Football Stadium ‘Seamer Road’ and
Filey Road Sports Centre ‘Filey Road’ sites. These would then be
developed for alternative uses by the developer in order to recoup
costs. When adopted the Development Briefs will establish
development principles and parameters, providing clear guidance to
The Briefs can only be given weight when subsequently making
planning decisions if they have been subject to a thorough process
of consultation with statutory agencies and the local population.
The consultation not only seeks views on the planning of the 3
sites, but also the type and range of sport/leisure provision on
the Weaponness site.
