Douglas South MHKs want to see Spring Valley changing rooms sorted

Sarah Maltby says the pitches are a 'community asset'

The MHKs for Douglas South are calling for condemned changing rooms at the Spring Valley playing fields to be refurbished.

Claire Christian and Sarah Maltby say they have requested a meeting with Douglas Council to put a plan in place. 

After eight years the local authority has outlined options such as; asking teams to merge and creating new pitches at Noble's Park to speed the project along. 

Mrs Christian says she has been working with local sports clubs to try and find a resolution.

Local Democracy Reporter Emma Draper has been speaking to her and Mrs Maltby:

When the council met in February, it rejected tenders for the development due to the cost being too high and  agreed in April its top priority is to 'investigate modular buildings'.

Chair of the Regeneration and Community Committee Andrew Bentley said during the meeting the local authority has been working to resolve the issue, which he said started 8 years ago.
