Exciting development plans for Bodington Playing Fields
You can have your say about plans to develop some of the existing grass pitches at Bodington Playing Fields.

Proposals include providing one dual-use artificial grass pitch (football and rugby) and two new artificial grass football pitches, together with an ancillary pavilion building, access and car parking facilities.
A new access point into the site is proposed from the A660 and has already been discussed with Leeds City Highways department.
The scheme is part of a national programme known as Parklife, part funded by The Football Association, Premier League and Government, and delivered by the Football Foundation.
The development at Bodington Playing Fields is one of four such hubs planned in Leeds and forms a city-wide approach to address a shortage of good quality community football facilities and, in particular, to support the development of mini, youth and junior age participation.
We will use the site, as well as numerous partner clubs from the local area. The proposed new pavilion building will become a community hub and, together with the adjacent cycle track and Brownlee Centre, will reinforce this sites contribution to sport at a local, regional and national level
We will be submitting a planning application to Leeds City Council for the scheme later this year, and we are providing you with the opportunity to view and comment on the scheme in advance of this.
Consultation runs until Wednesday 24 July. See the Campus Developments website for details of how you can take part.
