Proposals for a new Wealden Community Sports Hub on the outskirts of Hailsham

Status: Closed

Previous research studies such as the Playing Pitch Strategy, leisure provision review and through our engagement with Sport England, Sports Governing Bodies and key stakeholders has demonstrated that there is a need to provide new sporting facilities in Wealden.

We are proposing to build a new Community Sports Hub on the outskirts of Hailsham that would provide much needed and desired facilities for the local community. Plans may include a range of recreational opportunities for organised formal sports programs and informal sports and community spaces.

The proposals will go through the statutory planning process but we want to involve residents in this project as soon as possible to ensure that a new facility meets the needs of our residents’ now and in the future.

Please take this opportunity to talk with members of your household and let us know your thoughts on the proposed new facility.
