Riverside pitches - work completed

As residents are aware, I long campaigned to get a permanent and full resolution to the stones problem on the Riverside pitches on the south side of Riverside Drive, following a number of injuries to footballers in the past.

In June 2014, the City Council's Environment Committee agreed to the necessary works.    

I recently asked for an update on progress and the City Council’s Environment Manager has advised as follows :

“…the capital works in terms of the replacement top soil/seeding is complete although there is a minor issue with some drainage. Hence all going well they should all be available for next football season (August).”
