Plans have been submitted to alter and extend the cricket pavilion on Blackboys Recreation Ground.
The existing prefabricated ‘shed’ which is raised on brick piers with a lower level rear lean-to and side storage unit is said to need renovation and improvement to provide better facilities for users.
These include a cleaner and more functional changing/shower/WC provision, together with some elements to enhance the external appearance.
The proposals are to remove the rear and side elements of the building and construct simple additions.
A rear extension would be the ‘sanitary’ block with changing, washing and toilet facilities while the side would be for storage.
Inside there would be a larger open plan area and two smaller store areas.
At the front there would be a canopy to provide some external shelter and enhance the appearance.
Documents with the planning application which is before Wealden Council say: “It is considered that these modest improvements would create a better looking and more effective pavilion. It would enhance the appearance of the structure and be a positive alteration to the existing arrangement.”
