Installation of new Artificial Cricket Wicket in Grattons Park

Decision Maker: Head of Community Services

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No



To grant permission for Sussex Cricket to install a new artificial wicket at Grattons Park and to approve an initial 3-year temporary licence with RAMS CC.

This decision has been taken by the Head of Community Services, in consultation with Cabinet Member for Wellbeing.

Alternative options considered:

Not installing a new artificial wicket would result in the ongoing displacement of home games being played outside of Crawley due to a lack of high-quality facilities within the borough to meet current and future demand. It would also result in a loss of income to the council of £761.40 per annum.
