The land also homes a former bowls pavilion and sports pitch which could also be removed.

Ollerton firm Jackson Design Associates the agent for the developer stated in the application that the former sports pitch has "reverted to scrub" and "marked out on its perimeter by the stubs of posts associated with a former fenceline".

The overall site area is approximately 2.25 hectares (split 0.85ha to the working men’s club and adjoining bowling green, and 1.4ha for the former sports pitch) and the development would be over two stages.
