Centre of sporting excellence planned for Otley
7:00am Thursday 12th December 2013 in News
More news about Otley’s bid to create an Olympic legacy centre of sporting excellence is set to be revealed.
Organisers have been putting together a business plan for the Chevin Olympic Park after Leeds City Council gave the preferred – as yet unannounced – site a successful preliminary examination.
The committee for the project will meet again today to discuss what progress has been made.
The outline plan for the park envisages it as a centre that would put Otley on the map as a regional sporting hub, featuring:
* A sports hall and centrepiece athletics track, with synthetic football/rugby pitch in the middle
* Adjacent all-weather playing fields for football, rugby and hockey
* A cycle track, fitness studio, gym and meeting room.
