Forthcoming public consultation

for Howes Close Sports Ground, Girton

Anglia Ruskin University is bringing forward a revised scheme to enhance the facilities at Howes Close Sports Ground. The latest proposals seek to provide a new, modern space for outdoor sport which will provide a long term home and high quality facility for our University, its students, and any local clubs with which we agree a formal partnership with to use the site.

Following consultation events and meetings in July 2013 and again in May 2015, we have listened to feedback from both local residents and the Council and as a consequence, we have made some further changes to our proposals.

In order to provide you with an opportunity to view the proposals, a public exhibition was organised for 14 July, taking place in the pavilion itself.

If you weren’t able to attend the exhibition, please find copies of the boards below.

Following the exhibition, the team will consider all comments and queries received prior to submitting an application by mid-August. A formal consultation will take place during this time with South Cambs District Council.

Should you have any queries or comments during this time please do not hesitate to get in touch with the team on 0800 298 704 or
