The Vale of Glamorgan Council and Llandough Community Council have worked in partnership to build a new Multi-Use Games Area on King George V Playing Fields in the village
Local young people were consulted by the Community Council on the type of facility they wanted to see in the area and the two Councils worked together to deliver it.
This facility, which will provide an all-weather surface and is suitable for a range of activities, including football, basketball and netball, cost over £85,000 to construct.
Funding came from the Strong Communities Grant Fund contributing, a Sport Wales grant, section 106 contributions from nearby developments and reserves from Llandough Community Council.
Such redevelopment is part of a widespread programme of work to improve play facilities across the County.
Cllr Kathryn McCaffer, Vale of Glamorgan Council Cabinet Member for Leisure, Arts and Culture, said: “We are very pleased with the new multi-use games area which is much needed in Llandough. This is an excellent example of what can be achieved through effective cooperation between a local authority and a community council to deliver much needed facilities. I would like to thank Llandough Community Council for their hard work and dedication to the delivery this project.”
Chairman of the MUGA Working Party, Community Councillor Dr Mo Misra said: “We are extremely grateful for the support we have had from the Vale of Glamorgan Council and Sport Wales, which has enabled us to build this superb facility for the village. We are confident that the youngsters of Llandough will appreciate and enjoy this impressive facility for years to come.”
