Chesterfield FC Community Trust has plans to install a new 3G pitch on Stand Road, for the benefit of the community.
John Croot, chief executive of the Community Trust, said: “If our plans receive the go-ahead, it will be a valuable community facility, operated by the Trust.
“We will engage with new and existing groups who wish to use the facility, further enhancing our efforts to make sport accessible for all in the area.”
A spokesperson for Chesterfield Borough Council said: “The council is currently working with Chesterfield Football Club regarding the potential for one 3G pitch to be developed in the area.
“We welcome any developments that would bring new opportunities for the local community, however the football club will be required to go through the full planning application process before any development on the site can go ahead.
“If and when a detailed planning application is received for the site, this would be subject to consultation in line with our usual planning processes and local residents would have opportunity to make formal representation before any decision was taken.”
