Draft Masterplan of Improvements – Public consultation (ends 31 October 2021)
Southampton City Council are currently seeking your views on the Draft Masterplan of Improvements for the Outdoor Sports Centre for which £16.85 million of funding is allocated in the council’s capital programme.
These improvement proposals include covering three of the outdoor tennis and netball courts which will promote year-round use and support successful tennis programme and netball leagues in the city.
