Rugby club ta­bles plan for im­prove­ment

Herald Express - - News -

PLANS to sig­nif­i­cantly im­prove the fa­cil­i­ties at the home of Dart­mouth Rugby Club have been re­vealed.

A new cov­ered stand­ing ter­race, dugouts, fenc­ing and flood­lights will be built at Nor­ton Play­ing Fields if plans sub­mit­ted to South Hams Dis­trict Coun­cil are ap­proved.

The River­siders, who play in the Trib­ute Devon Di­vi­sion 1, want im­proved train­ing and spec­ta­tor fa­cil­i­ties at their home ground in Wes­sex Way.

The scheme in­volves the ad­di­tion of a cov­ered spec­ta­tor area and dugouts, pro­tec­tive fenc­ing, im­proved pedes­trian ac­cess and im­prove­ments to the flood­light­ing.

They added: “The plans pro­vide a sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment to the play­ing and train­ing fa­cil­i­ties for Dart­mouth Rugby Foot­ball Club and other users of this fa­cil­ity. There has been a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease in sport­ing par­tic­i­pa­tion in Dart­mouth, with re­cent im­prove­ments to sport­ing fa­cil­i­ties, such as the swim­ming pool, and these pro­pos­als seek to cap­i­talise on this mo­men­tum.”
