New sports pavilion planned at Potters Bar school
PLANS to build a sports pavilion at a school in Potter Bar have been submitted to Hertsmere Borough Council.
The structure, which would cost between �150,000 and �200,000, is needed to replace the cricket pavilion destroyed by arsonists at Dame Alice Owen’s School in February.
The outbuilding would be constructed from brick, while the former pavilion was a timber frame structure.
Ian Breeze, the director of sport at the Dugdale Hill Lane school, said: “In the summer it will be used for cricket and in the winter it can be used for football and rugby.
“It will have a small tea room for refreshments, a disabled toilet and two changing areas which will take 15 players each.”

He added the facility would also benefit the wider community, as it would be used by Potters Bar Cricket Club’s third, fourth and fifth teams.
The plans are currently open to public consultation.
