Leigh Road Tennis Courts - Conversion to Car Parking

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To feedback on the consultation on the proposal to convert the existing two tennis courts opposite the Leigh Road entrance to the Park Lane Recreation Ground to provide additional car parking.

 

The existing car park at Leigh Road has 20 parking spaces and, whilst this is sufficient to accommodate most of the demand, it does not have the capacity to meet the peak demand during the summer, particularly when the Fareham Bowls Club have matches or events taking place at their premises within the recreation ground.

 

The adjacent two tennis courts are redundant and no longer fit for purpose and there is an opportunity to change the use of these to provide an additional 25 parking spaces, which will include disabled parking bays and be in line with the existing four hour limit.

 

Public consultation has revealed no objection to the principle of converting the tennis courts to provide additional car parking, but there has been a request for an alternative use to be considered, i.e. to make the area of the courts a formal area for off the lead exercise / training of dogs.

 

The Executive is asked to consider the results of the consultation and to consider the proposal to provide additional car parking.

Decision:

RESOLVED that the Executive agrees that the redundant tennis courts adjacent to the Leigh Road entrance to the Park Lane Recreation Ground be converted to provide increased car parking provision.
