Multi-sports facility for Combe Martin
Considerable investigatory work on this project has been undertaken and is continuing. A major obstacle is that Hollands Park was placed in Trust with the Playing Fields Association in 1956, a fact not widely known or remembered in Combe Martin, and any potential development will need their approval.
