A long-awaited all-weather pitch for Stonehaven has moved a step closer to fruition following the submission of a planning application.

Stonehaven Community Council have lodged the plans on behalf of the All Weather Sports Facility Committee.

Steps have been made over the summer for an all -weather pitch to be built at a site at Mineralwell Park (pictured) to replace an existing football pitch.

Representatives from various sporting teams have been in consultation and meetings with the All Weather Sport Facility committee.

The committee are in discussions with Aberdeenshire Council over a proposed £320k grant and an application to Sports Scotland for matching funding is being completed.

At Tuesday’s community council meeting, it was agreed to support the application and submit it on behalf of the committee.
