Havering Council have released the full feasibility study on the proposed new pitches.

The proposed works are to be funded by a local 106 Agreement following the loss of existing provision due to an approved housing development on the Albemarle playing fields.
It is proposed that two senior sized football pitches shall be located in the south-western corner of the Nature Reserve close to the main site entrance as well as the existing small car parking area. If the two pitches are to be developed at the proposed locations, then in order to meet Sport England guidelines allowance will need to be made for re-grading the sloping ground at each location. This will necessitate stripping off the existing topsoil and levelling of the exposed subsoil to produce graded platforms complying with Sport England slope requirements. On completion, the original topsoil would be replaced followed by the installation of intensive pipe drainage systems.

The remit of the study did not include any brief to examine other potential facilities such as parking, changing rooms or toilets.
