Job Done - New sports pavilion and pitches for Peterborough

Project: Construction of sports pavilion and pitches

Client: Barratt Homes and Peterborough City Council

Contractor: Agripower

Sports turf specialist Agripower recently completed playing pitches at a new sports pavilion close to Peterborough city centre. The project was part of a section 106 planning agreement to build 500 new homes at the old British Sugar Site in the city.

The sports pavilion was created by Kier Eastern and has won several design awards. Agripower installed two natural football pitches, a fully floodlit, four-court, 20mm-monofilament surface multi-use games area and carried out landscaping and hardscaping work on the car park.

Peterborough City Council community services cabinet member Matthew Lee said: "It's a boost for the area and I'm really pleased. It's been four years in the making and is now the third community centre in the ward." Peterborough Town FC plans to use the facility for training.
