Northallerton sports village

Northallerton Sports Village is an integral element of the North Northallerton Development to provide facilities for formal and informal sport and recreation.

Located to the north of Northallerton the development will enhance existing green space at Stone Cross, as well as bringing new land into community use.

The Sports Village will be developed in phases. The Council has secured £1.3m (£503,706 from the European Regional Development Fund and £800k from developer contributions) to fund Phase 1 – the Northallerton Environmental Enhancement Project. This phase will fund improvements to existing pathways, creation of new fitness trails, ecological improvements to the beck, planting of native species, creation of a wetland area, construction of community allotments and a wild food area. The works also involve removing some trees, in line with an ecological assessment of the site and a woodland management plan, as this will further improve biodiversity and the provision of habitats for local wildlife in the long-term. The installation of bird and bat boxes and an otter holt will all contribute to improving biodiversity

Phase 1 is due to be completed in March 2023. During this period there will be times when access to certain areas at Stone Cross will be restricted to the public but disruption will be kept to a minimum so people can continue to enjoy the green spaces.

Subject to funding Phase 2 will include grass pitches, and a full size 3G artificial pitch.
