Eastbourne Sports Complex is home to some of Darlington's most successful Sports Clubs.

We have a superb eight-lane, county standard, synthetic athletics track, with a full range of track and field events, floodlighting and athletics equipment, as well as six 11-a-side football pitches.

Our 3G pitch is specifically designed for use in all weathers and offers support and suspension for the best playing performance.

Refurbishment proposals - 2022 

At a recent meeting of the council’s Cabinet a recommendation was passed to progress with proposals to remodel an existing storage building, refurbish the existing athletics track and current floodlighting. The proposals also include the creation of a new 3G pitch with associated spectators seating, fencing, storage areas and new floodlighting. There are also plans to convert the existing tarmac netball and tennis courts into a new car park, consisting of 110 spaces, lighting and prefabricated containers to provide the associated changing facilities on the Eastbourne Sports Complex site.

In advance of the submission of a related planning application, there is an opportunity for any comments to be made on the initial proposals.

Please click the 'Eastbourne Refurbishment' tile above to view the design documents.

 Any comments can then be sent to [email protected] until 10 June 2022.

A formal consultation will also be carried out by the local planning authority as part of the planning application process, which is expected in July this year.
