Town's planned Training Ground

14 October 2013

Plus Community Sports Complex

Fleetwood Town have announced a public exhibition  in order to showcase the draft plans for the exciting, new community sports complex and training ground in Thornton.

Details of the planned development on land at Pool foot Farm will be available for public viewing next week.

The new complex is set to deliver both improved facilities for the football club as well as a number of much needed quality grass pitches for use by the local community.

In addition, the proposals will include state of the art full size 3rd generation pitch with associated changing rooms, classroom and other community facilities. The development will also allow for the continued growth of the club’s charitable trust and will create much needed jobs in the leisure sector. 

The exhibition will also detail the Rowland Homes housing scheme, proposed at the rear of the Bourne Poacher pub, as provision has been made in the Poolfoot Farm plans to replace those pitches currently located on that site.

Club chief executive Steve Curwood said the public exhibition will be well publicised.

“We’ve sent out flyers to around 2,000 homes in the immediate vicinity of Poolfoot Farm and we’ll also advertise in the local press and club website.

“It’s an opportunity for everyone to see the proposals. It’s a really exciting development for the area but it remains a draft proposal and comments are welcome.”

The chief executive said the development is not a short-term plan but focused on the long-term. 

“I’d urge as many neighbours, supporters and the wider community to come and look at the plans. These are really exciting proposals and will form the basis what will truly be a legacy for Wyre in years to come.”

The exhibition will be displaying the plans between 2pm and 8pm on Wednesday 23rd October at Thornton Cleveleys Football Club, Bourne Road, Thornton, FY5 4QA. Anyone can among along at anytime during the day to see all the display boards and talk with those involved in the design of the scheme.
