Telford sports facilities plans considered

Plans to improve sports facilities in part of Shropshire are to be considered by a council's cabinet this week.

A BMX track, a floodlit artificial pitch for rugby and a sports hall with eight badminton courts were among proposals for Dawley Sports & Co-operative Learning Community, Telford.

Telford & Wrekin Council said it and partners would submit a bid for funding of £1.5m to Sport England this month.

Recommendations for the bid and Dawley will be considered on Thursday.
