Council to back beach volleyball plan

Objectors to a controversial scheme to create a beach volleyball centre on the Victoria recreation ground in Canterbury may not find the city council on their side.

Although Kent County Council will decide the application, the local authority has been asked for its views.

But planning officers are recommending that the development control committee raises no objection when it considers the issue next week.

They only suggest that a wildlife survey be done and any mitigation carried out, including the planting of a replacement tree.

The plan by Canterbury High School to turn four old tennis courts into a floodlit international standard beach volleyball centre has angered some local people and city councillors.

They are particularly concerned by what they claim is the loss of public open space.
