Costello playing fields

Have your say on state-of-the-art sporting facilities

A public consultation will begin this weekend to give the community the chance to share their views on improvements to Costello Playing Fields.

The consultations will be held at Peter Pan Park Café over three dates in April and are part of a major investment project by Hull City Council.

The council’s Cabinet has approved plans for the playing fields on Anlaby Park Road North that will benefit sporting groups and the local community.

Cabinet agreed to release funding to create state-of-the-art facilities on the west Hull site, including refurbishing and improving existing sports pitches to a national standard, one being a 3G floodlit pitch.

The current changing facilities will also be improved and extended, there will be disabled access to all the amenities, and the existing tennis courts will be available for bookings.

These works will provide high-quality, year-round community use sports provision at evenings and weekends, complementing the council’s wider commitments to improve footpaths in the park and Costello Stadium’s running track.

Hull College, which has worked closely with the council, will use the playing fields Monday to Friday during term time.

Under the plans, community and sporting groups will continue to have full access to the public green spaces, which is the majority of the site.

To have your say on the development at Costello Playing Fields, visit Peter Pan Park Café between 9am and 11am on Saturday 1 April and Tuesday 4 April, or between 6pm and 8pm on Wednesday 5 April.
