Northallerton Sports Village is an integral element of the North Northallerton Development to provide facilities for formal and informal sport and recreation.
Located to the north of Northallerton the development will enhance existing green space at Stone Cross, as well as bringing new land into community use.
The sports village will be developed in phases. The council secured £1.3 million (£503,706 from the European Regional Development Fund and £800,000 from developer contributions) to fund Phase 1 – the Northallerton Environmental Enhancement Project. This phase funded improvements to existing pathways, creation of new fitness trails, ecological improvements to the beck, planting of native species, creation of a wetland area, and construction of community allotments. The works involved removing some trees, in line with an ecological assessment of the site and a woodland management plan, to further improve biodiversity and the provision of habitats for local wildlife in the long-term. The installation of bird and bat boxes and an otter holt will all contribute to improving biodiversity
Phase 1 is almost complete. Subject to funding, Phase 2 will include grass pitches, and a full size 3G artificial pitch.
