Located within a strategic gap on a ridge overlooking housing, adjacent to a skateboard park, multi-use games area (MUGA) and an ancient woodland, planning consent was granted for a full size 3G football pitch with flood lighting for South Downs College.

The design required a cut and fill balance to be achieved across the site and installation of a 2m high timber acoustic barrier.  Careful traffic management and agreement with the highways’ authority was required to provide temporary access for construction traffic off a busy road opposite the college.  A new electrical supply from a nearby sub station located within a residential area provided power for the floodlights and CCTV connected from the pitch back to the College. The scheme was completed by APThomspon prior to going into administration.
