Bradley Stoke Cricket Club (BSCC) has announced plans to replace and re-site the “dilapidated” practice nets at its Baileys Court ground and is inviting local residents to attend two informal ‘drop-in’ consultation events to find out more about the project.
The club says the Bailey Court nets are now the only ones in Bradley Stoke, after the nets that were previously at Bradley Stoke Community School were removed to make way for the new primary phase building.
The cost of the project is approximately £57,000 and the club has submitted a New Homes Bonus Fund grant application to South Gloucestershire Council for £50,000 of funding. A decision on the application is expected by the end of February.
A summary of the project was presented at a meeting of Bradley Stoke Town Council’s Leisure, Youth & Amenities Committee in December.
Andy Burrows of the BSCC Nets Committee said:
“To date, our plans have been well received by Bradley Stoke Town Council, Bradley Stoke Community School (who would benefit from the new nets) and the Gloucestershire Cricket Board, and we have letters of support from all of them.”
The club says it is currently working with an architect and plans to submit an application to the local planning authority at the end of January.
Informal consultation sessions are being staged at the Bailey’s Court Activity Centre on the following dates:
- Tuesday 20th January, 6pm to 8pm
- Thursday 29th January, 7pm to 9pm
At each event, local residents will be able to review and discuss the plans with members of the club.
