Wilmslow Rugby Union Football Club has applied for planning permission to make a number of improvements at their Kings Road site which lies with the Green Belt.
The club are seeking permission for engineering works to enable them to create a levelled playing field, improve drainage and install a 3G playing surface.
The current pitch (no. 1) has substantial drainage issues that causes the pitch to be unplayable for substantial parts of the season.
The application states "It is not 'fit for purpose', and the required improvements will address the long standing problems with the Pitch no. 1, creating a modern playing facility that has significant capacity to improve and enhance the sporting and recreational facilities available at the club."
The planning application follows on from the club being successful in its application for sports grant funding to improve the quality of the playing pitch.
The plans can be viewed on the Cheshire Planning Portal by searching for planning reference 23/2348M.
