Glyde Rangers planning upgrade of their ground in Tallanstown
Glyde Rangers GFC are planning a series of upgrades to their pitch at Louth Hall in Tallanstown.
The club have submitted a planning application to Louth County Council seeking to construct new training areas on lands adjacent to the existing football pitch.
They are also seeking to erect six 18 metre high floodlighting columns around the proposed new adult training area.
There would also be the provision of a two metre wide walking track around the existing pitch and proposed training areas with associated pedestrian lighting and the erection of 21 metre high ball stops behind each goal posts on the proposed adult training pitch. Twelve metre high ball stops would also be erected behind each goal on the existing pitch while the existing floodlighting columns would also be replaced with six 18 metre high columns.
A new 2.4m high wiremesh fence is also earmarked adjacent to the River Glyde.
In order to facilitate the works the club is proposing to divert 10kv ESB overhead power lines.
They are also seeking to incorporate a pedestrian gate into the existing front vehicular entrance gate.
A decision on the matter will be made by November 4th.
