Norwich City Community Sports Foundation
Planning Support Documents
La Ronde Wright has had pleasure in working with the Community Sports Foundation on its new proposals for an exciting new sports facility which will be named ‘The Nest’ at Manor Park, Horsford. The initial redevelopment will involve the renovation of an existing clubhouse, relaying of seven football pitches and the creation of 27 permanent jobs. Potential future options for the scheme include indoor sports and classroom facilities.
Established in 1992, the Norwich City Community Sports Foundation is the Club’s affiliate charity partner. For over 20 years the charity has helped to support over 38,000 people every year achieve their ambitions. It provides support to some of the most disadvantaged people and to disabled people as well as to talented people across Norfolk.
The Nest will support the Foundation’s vision to help people achieve their goals by delivering high quality, innovative services through football and sport.
Norwich City FC director Tom Smith, who is a trustee of the charity, said: “The creation of the Nest will turn a derelict site into a hive of activity where people can learn, grow and spread their wings. It will provide a step-change in the Foundation’s ability to reach out and help thousands of individuals regardless of age, gender or ability. It’s a fantastic project.”
In partnership with local and national organisations, The Nest would deliver services in social inclusion, sport, disability, health, football and education.
“The proposal to bring this major sporting facility to Broadland is very exciting and it has real future potential to benefit our community.” – Cllr Andrew Proctor (Leader of Broadland District Council)
