A Boroughbridge Sports Village is being proposed near to Aldborough Gate (the land between Aldborough Cemetery and Boroughbridge Allotments on Chapel Hill), to enhance the quality of life for residents of Boroughbridge and neighbouring communities.

It is intended that this proposed development will increase the number of people participating in physical activity, contributing to improved health and wellbeing of local residents and act as a central hub for the community to come together.

The proposed Sports Village would comprise of community amenities such as a games field, an exercise track, a 100 metre sprint track, multi-use games areas (for team sports such as five-a-side football, netball etc), a nature reserve and a fully equipped, state of the art gym which would include all of the latest classes, a health food café and a community meeting room.
