Work to create the main access route into the new Sowerby Sports Village has begun.

An access road - which includes a turning circle to allow coaches to service the new primary school if needed - a pedestrian footway that will link to the existing town square adjacent to Orchid House and a crossing point to the school are being created.

The work – expected to take three months – complements the first stage of the sports village which opened last month to allow local residents to take exercise during the coronavirus pandemic. Residents are being urged to follow government guidelines on social distancing, and keep the site safe and healthy for everyone.

Councillor Mark Robson, Leader of Hambleton District Council (pictured) says: “I am delighted we were able to open phase one for local people to enjoy – and that we can now progress with the next stage.

“It is an exciting project that will see a range of facilities for people to access sport and physical activity regardless of age or ability.”

ESH Construction has been appointed to undertake the latest works – the company has stringent processes in place to ensure they adhere to current social distancing and sanitisation requirements.
