Leisure

Marshfield Community Council Leisure Committee are looking to add a much-needed new community leisure facility, largely with Section 106 money given from previous residential development in the area.

To date a survey and public consultation have been completed to understand from the residents of Marshfield and Castleton what was required in terms of leisure and sports facilities.

 

Following our last public consultation, we have now evaluated all the leisure suggestions put forward by the community and shortlisted 3 options:

  • Multi purpose games area located in the grounds of Marshfield Village Hall.
  • A natural landscape play area at The Meadows/Mallards Reach.
  • Landscaping of the fields at Marshfield Village Hall, to include footpaths, bandstand, patio and planting.

Due to the limited availability of suitable areas for a playground in either The Meadows or Mallards Reach this option is not currently being progressed. Initial draft quotations have been received for the provision of a multi purpose games area and the council are engaging with Newport City Council on the best approach to deliver this facility. There will be an opportunity to review these proposals once they are developed sufficiently. The landscaping option, which came third in the priority of residents, is not being progressed other than the provision of a footpath to improve access around the current sports pitches.
