State-of-the-art sports facilities for North Hertfordshire College: a new Sports Hall and 3G Pitch in Hitchin gets the green light

26-11-2020

Saunders’ proposals for a contemporary sports building and 3G football pitch for North Hertfordshire College have received a resolution to grant planning permission.

The proposed modern facilities sit within an existing further education college site and form part of a mixed use application which also includes a residential development by CALA Homes which will help fund the development of the new sports facilities.

The existing facilities are in need of modernisation and the new scheme will bring sports facilities at the college into the twenty-first century, with a new sports hall, reception, gym and changing rooms. The buildings will connect with the existing college campus and will be accessed via landscaped areas of public realm.

Saunders approved designs meet the requirements of the college curriculum and will also serve the wider community out of college hours.

Prior to planning submission there has been close liaison with the college, cost consultants, planning consultants and sports consultants to develop an acceptable scheme which is affordable and meets the requirements of Sport England.

Work is due to start on site in 2021.
