Construction News Image
Members of the public have been called to help shape plans for a new development at Lough Moss Leisure Centre in Carryduff.

The proposal will see a new large floodlit 3G pitch built at the existing AstroTurf, along with additional carpark facilities including electrical vehicle charging points and coach parking.

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council is hosting the online consultation until 01 February 2022, allowing participants to play a crucial role in the development of the proposal. A virtual consultation will also take place on 13 January at 6pm to provide a further update and answer any questions from the public.

Councillor Sharon Skillen, Chair of the Leisure & Community Development Committee said: "As part of our Pitch Strategy, we are currently planning to develop some 3G pitches to enhance sporting facilities in our local communities. We are presently asking for feedback from the public for proposals at Lough Moss Leisure Centre and Laurelhill Sports Zone, which is an exciting opportunity for the council area.

"Lough Moss Leisure Centre is a popular facility and is regularly used as a training ground for sports clubs, schools and groups. It is hoped that the plans will enhance the sporting provision for these clubs and in particular, help local people access a wide range of sports in the Carryduff area.

"The additional parking for coaches will also enable the venue to host more competitive matches, providing an ideal ground to develop sport at grassroots level."

Councillor Sharon Lowry, Chair of the Capital Projects Committee added: "The council is committed to the development and investment of facilities across Lisburn & Castlereagh.

"The proposal for Lough Moss Leisure Centre will create a state-of-the-art facility which can be enjoyed by residents and sports clubs across the Carryduff area.

"It is hoped to use the facility as a community hub which will increase access to physical activity and social engagement opportunities. The vision is to ultimately improve the health and wellbeing of local people by creating stronger, more cohesive communities.

"We welcome the views of our residents and local groups on the proposed plans for the facility. These views will help us shape the future vision for the area to meet the needs of sports clubs and the local community. I would encourage everyone to visit the website www.loughmossconsultation.co.uk and feedback your comments."
