ROEHAMPTON PLAYING FIELDS COMMUNITY TRUST NOW WORKING CLOSELY WITH THE COUNCIL TO SUBMIT PLANS TO RUN THE PLAYING FIELDS FOR THE COMMUNITY

On February 11th Wandsworth Borough Council’s Executive Group responded to the many objections raised over the last year by Playing Field users and the community and has agreed to terminate the current procurement.

Trust and the Community

The Roehampton Playing Fields Community Trust has been set up to transform the sport and recreational facilities at Roehampton playing fields to meet both current and future demands of a growing local population. Our vision is to establish a vibrant, multi-sport community sports facility owned by Wandsworth Borough Council but managed and operated by the Roehampton Playing Fields Community Trust. In doing so we will seek to create excellent working relationships with a range of local voluntary groups, schools and sports organisations. We will also respect the neighbourhood and the special setting of the site which lies within a residential conservation area close to Putney Heath off the Dover House Road.
