Sports pitch revamp at school gets the go-ahead

21 April, 2017

PLANNING chiefs have approved plans for the redevelopment of a sports pitch at Canonbury Primary School.

The school in Canonbury Road applied for permission to redevelop the existing play area surface to create a 3G artificial grass pitch, with fencing, roof netting and floodlighting.

Islington Council received 38 objections to the scheme from neighbours who were concerned about the impact of the floodlights and noise when the pitch would be made available to members of the public – subject to booking – between 6pm and 9pm on weekdays and between 9am and 7pm on weekends.

Members of the council’s planning subcommittee agreed the plans last Thursday.
