Playing Fields

In response to the community, Friends of Burniston & Cloughton Village Hall and BCVH Trustees are developing a project to bring new facilities to the playing fields. ‘Active Burniston & Cloughton’ is the project name.

The committee are considering refurbishment of the tennis courts, installation of a MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) and a small skatepark. We would also like to develop a nature trail and other activities.

We are taking advice from SBC Sports Development, Scarborough Conservation, North Yorkshire Sport and the Designing Out Crime Officer (North Yorkshire Police). We will also share the information with both Cloughton and Burniston Parish Councils. There will be Open Day once lock down has been lifted to enable us to share and discuss further with the community.

Any changes will require approval from Burniston & Cloughton Village Hall Trustees and Planning Permission from Scarborough Borough Council.
