£1.5 million playing fields unused during school holidays

It looks like officials are not encouraging the casual use of the expensive new pitches which have been provided near Sim Balk Lane. They were intended as a replacement for facilities lost at Lowfields through building works.

No casual use of sports field

A couple of youngsters were kicking in today but the goalposts have been taped up to prevent use.

It is a real shame that more couldn’t have been done during the school holidays on what is a hugely expensive development. The last estimate was over £1.7 ,million with over a £1 million coming from taxpayers

The final bills aren’t in yet with long outstanding work on the cycle path access still to start. This is now expected to begin in September…

In the meantime, this part of the York – Tadcaster cycle path is badly overgrown. Graffiti is a continuing major issue at London Bridge.
