Plans for new sports and recreation facilities in Monmouthshire

Monmouthshire, Wales

Monmouthshire County Council is looking to create new sports provisions in the Magor with Undy area.

Currently, there is a significant shortfall of outdoor sport and recreation provision to serve the size of the Magor with Undy population, which was identified in an Open Spaces Study undertaken to inform the current Local Development Plan (LDP) for Monmouthshire.

Monmouthshire County Council proposes developing a piece of council-owned land in Knollbury to address this shortfall, creating an additional 4.42ha of outdoor sports provision.

We are now looking for feedback on the plans from residents before a planning application is submitted.

The consultation will be open from 9am, 29 April 2024, until 5pm, 27 May 2024. To take part in the consultation and provide your feedback, please visit: https://forms.office.com/e/GdDZGhibNQ

The proposal is to create new provisions for rugby, cricket and netball, with the facilities to be run by local voluntary clubs.

Monmouthshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Equalities and Engagement, Cllr Angela Sandles, said: “This is a great opportunity for the local community to provide feedback on proposed new sports provision in the area. Sports and recreational areas are vital for local communities’ health and wellbeing. Monmouthshire County Council is committed to providing more facilities in the Magor with Undy area.”
