Planning permission – clarification
Davitts GAA Club would like to clarify the situation regarding our application for planning permission to construct dressing rooms and toilets at our training ground at Newpark, which is situated a mile north of Ballindine. This training ground is locally referred to as the ‘Old Pitch’.
A few months ago the club was delighted to have received a generous Sports Capital Grant to help with the construction of a multi-purpose clubhouse at our main pitch in Ballindine village. We have received planning permission for this project and will begin work there in the very near future.
We also sought planning permission for the construction of a dressing room and toilet facilities at our training pitch in Newpark (the Old Pitch). At present there are no toilets or dressing rooms available there. We cater for a large number of teams from Under 6 up to adult, male and female, and this training ground is used daily by all of our teams. It is this planning permission application that is causing confusion among our supporters and has nothing to do with the project at our main pitch in Ballindine village.
