PLANS for new border fencing at a local football club have been submitted for approval.

Guiseley AFC has submitted its plans for new two-metre metal fencing around most of the perimeter of its Nethermoor Park stadium.

The fencing, if approved, would sit above the existing two metre concrete fencing around the ground, meaning the pitch would be surrounded by four metre tall fences.

The National League North side, currently involved in a relegation scrap with local rivals Farsley Celtic, currently has netting above its concrete fences, meaning the new mesh metal fence would substitute the nets with a sturdier replacement.

If approved it would run behind both goal ends of the pitch and up the majority of both touchlines.

Local residents have until April 26 to submit comments on the plans, with a target date of April 29 for Leeds City Council planning officers to reach a decision on the application.
