Residents are invited to have their say on controversial plans for a new rugby pitch in Sheffield.

Last week we reported residents were concerned that Hallamshire Rugby Club were planning to develop a new pitch on the top field in Bolehill Park, Crookes.

Many residents were alarmed at plans to build a fence around the pitch - which they feared could block public access to the field.

The club and Sheffield Council have confirmed that the field will be used as a pitch from January 2017.

But they have stated that any fence would not prevent access and would need to go to a public consultation before being erected.

People are invited to The Ball, in Crookes, at 7pm on Tuesday to find out more and have a say on the plans.
