Revised plans for a multi-purpose air dome housing indoor pitches at South Craven School in Cross Hills are to be re-submitted.

Last September, an initial application for the dome was rejected by Craven District Council planning officers, who concluded that while the structure would bring benefits to the school, it would also harm neighbouring amenities.

A spokesman for the school said: “The air dome will provide space for a selection of pitches – three tennis courts or two five-a-side football pitches or two netball courts.”

The school says the air dome would be made of a highly resilient fabric, which is light, strong, easily repairable, and fire proof.

It adds that it is keen to minimise any negative impact on the nearby community, and is urging people to contact Craven District Council about the application.
