Swindon Town training centre plans for golf course site submitted
Swindon Town Football Club has submitted a planning application for a new training centre and HQ.
The £6m proposals for the complex on the former Twelve Oaks Golf Club site at Highworth include a gymnasium and offices.
Eight grass pitches and a full-size, all-weather floodlit 4G pitch will be built on part of the former golf course, as part of the plans.
A separate plan for new homes on part of the site has also been submitted.
The proposals also include plans to realign an access road from Lechlade Road, a new footpath and cycleway, and an existing building will be turned into a restaurant for players.
The all-weather pitch will be available for community use, the club said.
Plans for a racehorse training yard on a separate part of the site have also been submitted.
The plans are due to be discussed at a Swindon Borough Council planning committee in early 2019.
