Our Project

Our Project

Our aim is to provide a facility at Costock Road Playing Fields which everyone in our village is proud of and wants to use. What we’re attempting is highly ambitious. In fact, it’s unprecedented in East Leake.

The precise scale, quality and detail of the end result will depend on the money raised to build it – both from grants and public fundraising. The more we raise the better it will be! Find out more about the finances on the Fundraising page.

However, these architects’ drawings show you what the new East Leake Pavilion could look like.

Our vision is to create a fully flexible space for people of all ages – hence the strapline of Sport, Leisure, Community. We want to ensure there are modern sports changing facilities in place which are fully compliant with equality needs and suitable for all users.

In addition, the new Pavilion is intended to be a potential venue for everything from private parties, to community groups, keep fit classes and business training.

The plans
The new facilities will be delivered in two stages:

  • Phase 1 – demolition of the existing single storey pavilion and construction of a modern replacement with four changing rooms.
  • Phase 2 – complete refurbishment of the adjoining two-storey building which will house two new cricket changing rooms.

It’s hoped that work could start on site as early as January 2022.

There are also plans for a new sixty-six space car park for the playing fields, on the far side of Costock Road on the corner of Sheep Plank Lane. This will be funded from Parish Council reserves. The aim is to reduce congestion caused by on-road parking at weekends. A formal planning application has been submitted to Rushcliffe Borough Council and we await their decision.

This project is being driven by East Leake Parish Council, the East Leake Playing Fields Charity and East Leake Traders Association, who represent many local businesses. These organisations are supported by a team of volunteers.
