Luton Rd Sports Field is used by Barton Rovers and Barton Rovers Youth Football Clubs, it is 17 acres of green open space currently set out as 11 football pitches along with a changing pavilion.
These facilities were originally built using s106 money to compensate / enhance the village on the back of the Grange Rd estate village extension development some years back.
The site has been further enhanced by grants from The Football Foundation and The Lottery Fund to build the pavilion and also install vital drainage.
Central Bedfordshire Council want to concrete over this green space with 166 new houses as part of their Local Plan
There are NO proposed relocation sites being put forward by Central Beds, they are relying on developers to provide an alternative site!
