A planning permission was submitted to upgrade a Glasgow football pitch to synthetic.

The Glasgow Girls Football Club, in Shettleston, is bidding for the grass play area to be replaced by astroturf.

Budhill Park is used for training and matches and is 106m x 70m.

Glasgow Times:

As well as the new surface, the documents also include a hardstanding spectator area, a new floodlight system and team shelters.

According to the papers, the refurb would be "beneficial to the wider community and local sports clubs who would be able to rent the pitches, increasing the community access to high-level sports facilities".

The applicant explained that if accepted, the new pitch would allow them to accept more players, who they currently cannot facilitate.

Most of them are underprivileged women and girls from the community.

A decision is expected by Friday, January 26.

The last day for comments is Thursday, December 28.
