The new sporting home for Tormead will provide facilities for hockey, cricket, football and athletics, as well as open the door for rugby to develop as a new sport option. Developed in close collaboration with Guildford County School, the project would see a whole-scale improvement of the site. Architectural 3D drawings of the facilities can be viewed below. When complete, the Urn Field sports ground will comprise:
• a floodlit artificial hockey pitch with a 6-lane, all weather running track;
• two football and one rugby pitch;
• two cricket squares, including a new artificial one, and relocated cricket nets;
• improvements to the ‘John Lewis Sports Pavilion’ including an extension to the viewing balcony;
• new javelin, discuss, shot put and long jump areas;
• a new store building and additional on-site car parking.
“This is an excellent project, not only for Tormead, but for our partners Guildford County School and the other community sports clubs, who will be able to use the site’s facilities when they are not engaged for school sport,” said Tormead Head, David Boyd. “Thank you to those who have already taken the time to contribute supportive public comments on the Guildford council planning portal.”
