Home Park, Coldstream pdf icon PDF 116 KB

Consider report by Service Director Assets and Infrastructure.  (Copy attached.)


There had been circulated copies of a report by the Service Director Assets and Infrastructure proposing that permission be granted to Coldstream Football Club for erection of floodlights at their ground at Home Park which they lease from Coldstream Common Good.  The report explained that the new Scottish Football Association (SFA) licencing requirements meant that Coldstream Football Club would lose their SFA licence and be removed from the league that they currently played in unless new floodlights were installed.  In response to a question on timescales the Estates Surveyor advised that site investigations were being carried out and it was hoped they would be installed in early July.



AGREEDto grant permission for the erection of floodlights at the ground of Coldstream Football Club in Home Park.
