Rosslyn Park FC presented a thorough consultation and planning application to Council. No stone was left unturned and the process was lengthy, professional and costly.
We had overwhelming support from local residents, our large local membership and council members. 95 % of online respondents recognised the club as an important local asset and supported the proposals. Rosslyn Park is a non profit making organisation which has a large local membership, 900 of which are children playing in the Minis and Youth. Since the club moved into this ground in the 1950s, very little infrastructure improvement has taken place as the club has never had the resources to do so.
The money generated from the digital screens has allowed the club to take on debt to immediately install a fantastic new artificial pitch and road netting system. The artificial pitch means that our hours of usage on the site has gone through the roof, allowing us to get more children and adults active and playing sport (grass pitches cannot cope with this level of usage). Externally we are renting the facilities to Universities, Schools, Clubs and Charities in a variety of sports/activities who are all enjoying playing on such a superb facility in an area deprived of fit for use outdoor pitches especially in the winter months. When the works have finished and the heavy machinery has left the premises, RPFC will embark on improving the appearance of the ground on the Upper Richmond Road side through a landscaping programme.
