Statement regarding parking at Studley Sports Centre, Abbey Fields Drive 

We are aware of several recent complaints regarding parking along Abbey Fields Drive during matches taking place at Studley Sports Centre.

Studley Sports Centre has recently reopened under new ownership following refurbishment and improvements to the site which began after the nationwide lockdown.  It has been fantastic to welcome back our resident teams, clubs, and visitors, and to enjoy sport being played here once more. Please note that improvements to the site are not yet complete and we are working hard to minimise any disruption to our visitors and the local area during this time.

We have spoken to several local residents regarding recent events regarding parking and several measures have been reinforced to prevent similar issues arising in future.

We are working closely with our resident football communities, and the local police and we are asking all visitors to Studley Sports Centre to work with us and with the local community to park courteously and follow the parking guidelines that we have in place to avoid causing any safety concerns or inconvenience to those in the local area.

We remind all visitors to Studley Sports Centre to use the onsite car park onlyand to refrain from parking on Abbey Fields Drive or on any of the local estates whilst visiting the venue.  

The police will be monitoring the situation and anyone who is found to be breaching the above parking requests is liable to receive a parking ticket to the amount of £100.

Please be aware that the fencing recently introduced around the car park is to protect the site from potential trespassers.  This is a temporary measure whilst we work towards a more permanent solution to securing the car park.

Studley Sports Centre has been a venue for local sport for over 35 years and we appreciate how warmly the community has welcomed the return of football here, which has provided some welcome normality to many during challenging times.  

If you have any concerns relating to this matter please contact Studley Sports Centre on 01527 853817 or email
