Bodington Playing Fields

Proposed plans for Bodington Playing Fields

Discover more about the exciting development plans for Bodington Playing Fields

Members of the public, University staff and students are invited to find out more about the proposed plans for the development of some of the existing grass pitches at Bodington playing fields. The proposed plans are to provide one dual-use artificial grass pitch (football and rugby) and two new artificial grass football pitches with an ancillary pavilion building, access and car parking facilities. A new access point into the site is proposed from the A660 and has already been discussed with Leeds City Highways Department.

This scheme is part of a national programme known as Parklife, part funded by The Football Association, Premier League and Government and delivered by the Football Foundation. The development at Bodington Playing Fields is one of four such hubs planned in Leeds and forms a city-wide approach to address a shortage of good quality community football facilities and in particular to support the development of mini, youth and junior age participation.

The University will use the site as well as numerous partner clubs from the local area. The proposed new pavilion building will become a community hub and, together with the adjacent cycle track and Brownlee Centre, will reinforce this site’s contribution to sport at a local, regional and national level

We will be submitting a planning application to Leeds City Council for this scheme later this year and are providing you with the opportunity to view and comment on the scheme in advance of this submission.
