Harlow Rugby Football ClubProposals for the layout of five rugby pitches

In moving to larger facilities the club required a layout to include the clubhouse, spectator stands and parking facilities in addition to the main pitch, a synthetic grassed training pitch and a further four grassed pitches for different age groups.

The undulating grassed agricultural land would involve considerable earthworks and a piped drain flowing through the property presented difficulties in planning the required drainage.

With severe cut slopes in one part of the site diverting water run-off from higher ground became essential.
