The construction of brand new and approved football pitches behind Bannister Sports Centre is well and truly underway.
Proposals for four new grass pitches and one artificial 3G pitch at Bannister Sports Centre, Uxbridge Road were approved at the end of last year. It is hoped that many of the local football clubs in and around Harrow will make the most of the new pitches and use them for both training sessions and Sunday league games.
A member of Harrow Online told us: “This is fantastic news for local teams. My son played for Pinner Albion and Parkfield and he would love to be able to showcase his skills on the new pitches. This is exactly the sort of thing that local grass-roots teams need and I am pleased that it’s all going head down quickly.
It has also been confirmed that plans to build a brand new ‘Dinosaur-themed’ golf course have been approved as well at the same location.
The proposals to lease the land at Everyone Active Bannister Sports Centre, in Uxbridge Road, for the new course feature huge dinosaur probs that will reportedly be up to seven meters in height. The dinosaur props will be able to make ‘roaring sounds’ as people navigate their way around the course.
The scheme was narrowly approved by the council’s planning committee in October 2018 and will also feature new parking facilities on site.
The new golf course will become the second themed mini golf course in Harrow following the Lost Jungle in Edgware which features Aztec temples, hidden tombs, crashing waterfalls, hissing snakes, spitting spiders and much more. The Lost Jungle is located on Watford By-Pass, Edgware and opened at the end on 2016 moving into 2017.
