New site for Kendal Rugby Club

South Lakeland District Council have consented the planning application by Kendal Rugby Club for a new ground at Mill Field, just to the north of their existing ground at Mint Bridge. This is the last piece in the jigsaw to enable a new 50,000 sq ft Sainsbury’s supermarket at Mint Bridge which was given planning consent in September 2014. The new ground will comprise 2 full sized pitches, a 2-storey clubhouse and associated facilities. The new Sainsbury’s store will create 500 jobs in the town.
