We are delighted to confirm that the date for the start of the building of the Community 3G pitch at Prince Henry’s Grammar School will be Monday 20th February 2023. The contractors anticipate a 15-18 week build time, which takes the build through to the end of June/early July. 

As per the planning permission from Leeds City Council, the hours of building work are 08:00 to 18:00 weekdays, 09:00 – 14:00 Saturdays with no Sunday/Bank holiday construction. 

Richard Davies, Chair of Sport Chevin, said "It is brilliant that this fantastic community scheme can finally begin construction, after years of partnership working.  Otley can join its neighbours in Menston, Ilkley, and Horsforth in having modern sports facilities that they take for granted. We would like to thank Otley Town Council for their generous grant from the Investing in Otley Fund and all the partner clubs and local people who have joined the Football Foundation in funding this project."

Headteacher Sally Bishop said “After five years of hard work with our partner clubs and organisations, we are delighted that the community 3G pitch at Prince Henry’s Grammar School can now begin construction. Since this much needed project was identified by the Football Foundation, we have all worked together to design a pitch to be proud of, which will enhance the lives of so many of Otley’s residents and school children. We look forward to continuing to work across the community during the build itself, and beyond, so that we can, as a group, move forward with this fantastic resource for our community.”
