Ground development application in

Guiseley AFC submit plans to begin developing and improving Nethermoor Park.

The club can confirm that the first set of plans to improve facilities at Nethermoor have been submitted to Leeds City Council.

The application, which represents the first stage of a proposed four-phase development plan, includes new covered terraces, seated stands and additional amenities to provide visiting away fans a better experience on segregated matchdays.

The key parts of the Phase One plan are:

  • – A new covered stand (terraced) at the Railway End.
  • – A new seated stand on the south (dugouts) side of the ground.
  • – A new covered terraced stand on the south side of the ground.
  • – New turnstiles, plus catering facilities and toilets at the Railway End to allow for easier crowd segregation.

Later phases of the ground development plan include proposals to build new facilities to replace those currently in use for refreshments and hospitality on the North side of the ground, followed by redevelopment of the dressing rooms and finally the addition of covered terracing at the Otley Road end of the ground.

In drawing up this plan, in consultation with experienced architects and the club’s own staff, board and volunteers, Guiseley AFC has set out to make exciting improvements to both our competitive football facilities and our Community Foundation’s ability to increase its reach and impact, whilst making the best use of the space available at Nethermoor Park.

We hope to make Nethermoor an even more friendly and welcoming place to watch football for all spectators, and to allow our Academy and Community activities to build upon the successes of their first few years – something that is crucial if the club is to grow as everyone wishes it to.
