Yeovil Rec's all-weather sports pitch approved

Plans to build an all-weather sports pitch in Yeovil have been approved by South Somerset District Council.

The proposal was reviewed by the area south committee, where residents could put forward their views, before the district council made a final decision.

It will be built at the Yeovil Recreation Ground and will cost between £600,000 and £800,000.

The pitch will be home to Yeovil and Sherborne Hockey Club, but will also be available for local schools to use.
