We are writing to you with regard to a recent notification received from Northamptonshire County Council in relation to ongoing discussions regarding the future of the NCC Sports and Social Club.




As you may already be aware the development of a new Academy at Wootton Hall Park has been approved along with future plans for the wider site. The first stage of the development will be the location of temporary buildings on the bottom part of the playing fields, which will house the school for the first three years while work commences on converting the Police HQ building. In order to ensure the temporary school is in place by September 2016 work will commence from June 2016 to develop the site, unfortunately this does mean that the second football/training pitch will no longer be available and there is potential disruption to the surrounding ground/pavilion. This will be monitored over the coming weeks and appropriate engagement will be provided to those affected.




In addition to the temporary school development, Northamptonshire County Council has also advised that they are looking to bring the operation of the club to an end and we have been asked to wind down all activities that utilise the club by September 2016.




We are obviously disappointed in this instruction and recognise the impact and inconvenience that this may cause, we can only apologise if this does affect you.




Steps are currently being put in place to identify those affected by this decision and we will be in touch should you be impacted.




Should you have any concerns with regard to this decision then please do not hesitate to contact the NCC Sports and Social Club via email at
