Colchester Training Ground

Sharps Redmore provide acoustic advice on the development of land in Tiptree, Essex to provide a new training ground and academy centre for Colchester United Football Club. 

The main challengers were that the site was open land and the close proximity of the adjacent residential properties. 

The site had to balance the flexibility of use required by Colchester Utd FC and the needs of local residents. 

Planning permission was granted which overcame the issues by the use of buffer zones and restrictions on hour of use.
