Ground Grading

Sports teams playing in local leagues will find that as they progress and get promoted their grounds will have to meet certain criteria. Things like placing a barrier around a pitch, installing dugouts and small seating stands are fine on spaces protected with us, we just require notification. If a team gets to the level where they have to start fencing off a pitch and charging spectators, this can, depending on a number of factors, lead to conflict with the terms of protection on a protected space, i.e. spaces protected with us must generally allow public access at all times. We recommend talking to us at the earliest opportunity if a protected space requires such upgrades for a team.
