A CRICKET pavilion can be built near a new housing estate in Hartley Wintney.

Planning officers from Hart District Council approved the plan for a clubhouse at St Mary’s Park, off Dilly Lane, using delegated powers.

Hartley Wintney Parish Council applied for permission after outline approval was granted in July last year, as part of an expansion of the estate.

The building will contain two changing rooms, a club room with an open kitchen and an office.
