Ebor Academy Trust together with Ebor Academy Filey, Filey Town Council, Scarborough Borough Council and North Yorkshire Police are working to provide new community sport and leisure facilities in Filey. We now need your help to identify both the demand for and best mix of these amenities to ensure that the new facilities suit local need.
If you would like to have your say, please see the survey links below.
Where will the sports facilities be?
The proposed site for the new facilities is Ebor Academy Filey on Muston Road, Filey. This location has been selected as it provides the best financial sustainability and is most likely to be successful in attracting external funding.
What will be available?
The proposed new amenity would provide exclusive local community access to a fitness suite and activity area seven days per week. In addition, there is likely to be some community access during the school day and during evenings, weekends and school holidays to the sports hall, pitches and new 3G facilities. The school already has some supporting facilities such as car parking and an existing management structure within the school to operate the new amenity.
As the first phase of the project Ebor Academy Trust are converting the existing tennis courts to an artificial grass surface area (with floodlights) which will allow year-round use for football, tennis, hockey, team games etc. It is intended that the facility will have community access and be completed by September this year.
Other sports and leisure facilities that have been identified as potential options include:
- Sports hall suitable for badminton, five-a-side football, netball and volleyball.
- Fitness suite with resistance and cardio vascular equipment and loose weights area.
- Activity area for exercise classes, dance, martial arts and community events.
The proposal would involve the conversion/extension of the former indoor swimming pool to accommodate the indoor facilities mentioned above. The options do not include a new swimming pool as this will be too costly to build and operate.
How much will membership cost?
Fitness facilities/exercise class areas have proved very popular in other towns with potential memberships options for regular users with unlimited access to the Fitness Suite and classes at approximately £15 – £20 per month or pay-and-play options. Early sign-up discounts will be available when fees are published. If you are interested in registering your details for this facility, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your email address and/or contact details, which will be treated in the strictest confidence.
