Dorking Football Ground in Meadowbank - March 2018 Update
As visitors to Meadowbank park will have spotted, its much-anticipated new community football facilities, soft play and café are in the final stages of completion.
Official Website for Meadowbank Park:-
Regrettably, due to contractor delays on site, the facilities were not not completed in time for the previously publicised opening date of Monday 19 March.
The final stages have taken longer than agreed with the contractors. A new opening date will be released when MVDC is confident that date can absolutely be met.
Residents, visitors and local junior clubs can soon enjoy everything the new development has to offer, including a 3G pitch, floodlights, stands, clubhouse, changing room, soft play attraction, café, new headquarters for Surrey FA and new home for Dorking Wanderers FC. The facilities will be a fantastic addition to the already very popular park and children's playground.
£8 million has been invested towards the provision of the state-of-the-art community football facilities. That includes a £6.5million investment by Mole Valley District Council (MVDC), £1 million by Surrey County FA to fund the build of their new headquarters and £500,000 through the Sport England Improvement Fund.
You can follow the project by visiting the Meadowbank Park website.
Work began on site in September 2016, beginning with the ground being levelled off, all excess soil removed and foundations for the buildings made.
Surrey FA are in the process of booking slots for the youth teams in the district, who will have preferential access to the 3G pitch. Residents and visitors will be able to book the pitch, with demand expected to be high.
