MULTI-USE GAMES AREA – Launceston Road Recreation Ground

August 24th 2022

Callington Town Council are hoping to install a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) in the Launceston Road Recreation Ground. The Council are at the present time submitting a funding bid to the Community Infrastructure Levy Fund to help towards the funding of this project. The funding is specifically for new projects and not for revamping already installed equipment. If successful this funding will then be used in conjunction with the 106 money from Baker Estates which is solely for use in the Launceston Road Recreation Ground.

A MUGA can accommodate a wide-range of activities and sports e.g. football; basketball; netball and a lot of other sports and will help use the outdoor space available to the fullest.

It is proposed to locate it at the bottom end of the park where there is ample room for such a versatile facility. It will be approximately 24m long x 15m wide with square open sided goals and panels around the whole area. This will form a safe and secure environment for youngsters to play in.

We are carrying out a survey and would like to hear from anyone who would be interested in using this facility.  Please have a look at the questionnaire below.  We would be grateful if you could download the form, complete the questionnaire and return to us at enquiries@callington-tc.gov.uk.

The Council will keep you updated on the progress of the bid, we should know if we have been successful towards the end of this year.  In the meantime if you have any questions or queries please contact us at enquiries@callington-tc.gov.uk or call on 01579 384039 between 9am and 2pm.

Below is a general design of a MUGA to provide an idea of what it will look like at Launceston Road Recreation Ground
