Cricket Club Near Scarborough Applies For New Pavilion

Cricket Club Near Scarborough Applies For New Pavilion

Published by Local Democracy Reporter Carl Gavaghan at 3:22pm 17th July 2019.

One of Scarborough’s oldest cricket teams wants to replace its ageing pavilion for one fit for the 21st Century.

Brompton Cricket Club was one of the founder members of the Scarborough Beckett League in the early 1900s and has been a mainstay in the league ever since.

The club’s current ground in Ings Lane in Brompton by Sawdon was built in the 1950s by members for the princely sum of £250.

The pavilion, however, has no disabled access, no showers and a kitchen that is too small for its current use.

The planning submission sent to the council by the club paints a bleak picture for users of the current pavilion.

It states:

”There is no insulation of any kind in the building. There is no hot water, no heating and the electricity supply does not meet modern standards.

The poor quality and condition of the existing building also means that maintenance costs are high, which in turn impacts on the availability of club funds for other purposes and makes it more difficult to keep subscriptions at affordable levels.”

The club is now proposing a new, larger pavilion to take its place, one that meets England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB)  guidelines.

The Health and Safety Executive has objected to the plans as there is a gas pipe that is classed as a “major hazard” in the vicinity, though it adds that the objection is based on historical data and it may not be an issue for this development.
