Access Control Turnstiles among vital ground improvement plans for Hampshire football club

Access control turnstiles are among the vital ground improvements planned by a Hampshire football club that aims to achieve promotion to a higher league, a news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

Hartley Wintney Football Club aims to clinch Combined Counties promotion with vital ground improvement plans. The club won a first league title in 33 years last season but failed to meet ground grading requirements to allow promotion to Step 4.

Club officials are hoping they can get the plans approved – and this time the team promoted.
The application is for ‘small’ single-storey extensions to the Green Lane clubhouse and changing rooms, a 63-seat supporters stand, two areas of covered standing, some new fencing – including turnstiles – and areas of hard standing to improve security and safety, for players and supporters.

A planning statement submitted on behalf of the club by Hartley Wintney-based Arktec Ltd said the improvements are needed for the first team but pointed out the club currently has three Saturday football teams, two Sunday football teams, a midweek youth team, as well as supporting numerous other local youth teams, so the proposed facilities will be used and enjoyed by all.

It added: “The proposals, which include additional provision for those with disabilities, will not only improve facilities for spectators and player security but will also encourage a wider range of people of all ages to attend matches which will in turn encourage the development of talent within the club, and local area.”
