Fordham set for new sports pavilion under plans submitted to council
THOUSANDS of pounds is set to be invested in building a new purpose built sports pavilion in Fordham.
Under plans submitted to East Cambridgeshire District Council, Fordham Parish Council hopes to replace its separate football and cricket pavilions with a new dual purpose pavilion located on the village’s recreation field, off Carter Street.
The wooden-boarded, brick building will measure about 50ft x 97ft and will feature four changing rooms across two wings, with a central “socialising area” for meetings and functions.
Architects Andrew Fleet told the district council: “The form and scale of the pavilion takes its lead from a traditional sports pavilion with overhanging canopy, but with contemporary external appearance.
“Internally the pavilion has been designed to cater for four changing rooms and associated facilities, two per wing, allowing two separate games to be take place simultaneously.

A decision on the plans is expected within the next eight weeks. To view the plans, or to have your day, visit www.eastcambs.gov.uk.
