Saxilby and District MUGA - Multi-Use Games Area

A Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) has been a long-term community aspiration and is included in the Saxilby with Ingleby Neighbourhood Development Plan as a community project. 

An open working group was set up in September 2020 to move the project forward, which includes residents and councillors.

Following public consultation the plans were drawn-up and have been submitted to the local planning authority (West Lindsey District Council) on 14 September 2021. This provides a further opportunity for public enagagment and consultation on the proposals.

 

Public Consultation

Two sets of public consultation have been undertaken on the project and the results from these consultations have informed the development of the plans.

  1. Initial public consultation took place during November and December 2020, to understand the requirements for the MUGA and the primary sports to be catered for.
  2. The second public consultation then took place From 7 April 2021 to 9 May 2021 on the draft plans.

The consultation reports can be found under the Council Consultation pages on the website. 

 

Funding

Around half of the funding required for the project has been secured (from external sources, as opposed to Council Tax) and further external funding is currently being sought. 

 

Location

The proposed site for the MUGA is on the grass to the east of the play area, on the Memorial Playing Field, William Street, Saxilby, LN1 2LP. The location can be viewed on the plans below. 

 

Plans

The plans are available to view below and have been developed by LK2 architects based on the public consultation results, Sport England guidelines, national governing body recommendations, Football Foundation guidance, and the grounds investigation report and acoustic report:
