Proposals for Potential Sport and Leisure Facilities in Filey

This consultation has ended.

Ebor Academy Filey, Filey Town Council, Scarborough Borough Council and North Yorkshire Police are working together to provide new community sport and leisure facilities in Filey.

We need to identify the demand and type of facilities that will meet local needs.  We also need evidence to support bids for external funding.  We are consulting all households and sports groups in the Filey and southern area.

The proposed site is Ebor Academy, Filey (formerly Filey School) on Muston Road.  This provides financial sustainability and is most likely to be successful when attracting external funding. 

The new facilities would provide the local community with access to a fitness suite and activity area seven days a week.  There will also be some access during the school day, evenings, weekends and school holidays.  Car parking is already available.  The facility will be managed by the school.

The first phase is to convert the existing tennis courts to a floodlit, year-round artificial pitch.  This should be completed by September 2016.

Other options include:

  • a sports hall for badminton, five a side football, netball and volleyball
  • a fitness suite with resistance and cardio vascular equipment and free-weights
  • an area for exercise classes, dance, martial arts and community events

The existing swimming pool will be converted/extended to accommodate the new facilities. 

A new swimming pool would be too costly to build and operate.

Memberships will be approximately £15 - £20 per month.  There will also be pay-as-you-go options.  Early sign-up discounts will be available.
