Councillors will now decided whether to give the proposals the go-ahead when the scheme for a site at The Meridian School is considered.
There should not really be any argument over the plans.

We are sadly lacking such a facility in Royston and it was recognised more than a decade ago by Sport England that such a development would receive a positive response.
Let us hope that the sporting body is thinking that way as preparations are made to submit a bid for Lottery cash.
