Council Chairman Requests Parking For New Sports Hall

New QE2 sports hall under construction

Chairman of the Council, Mike Hicks, has requested a review of parking facilities for the new sports hall at Carn Gwaval.

The sports hall is scheduled for hand-over from the builders, Kier Western, on Monday 7th November with an official opening the following Friday.

However, Mike told yesterday’s Community Services Committee that parking facilities were essential for “success in the community.” He suggested using the current Kier site to provide parking.

The report presented to Councillors also highlighted issues around access to the facility, particularly along the Moorwell path, similar to those already raised for the new school.

A weekend of sporting activities and displays is planned for the opening, including sports like basketball and trampolining, which have previously been difficult to take part in on the islands, due to lack of facilities.
