ALDERSHOT Cricket Club has been given the go-ahead to improve its headquarters in Guildford Road.

A proposal to demolish the pavilion and replace it with a new clubhouse has been approved by Rushmoor Council development control committee.

The accommodation will include changing rooms and a meeting room, with a scoreboard in the roof-space.

In a report the planners were told that scheme would improve the appearance of the ground.

The new brick-built clubhouse will also be soundproofed so that social events will not disturb nearby residents.

Cove Bowling Club has also been given the green light by the committee to improve its facilities at Horn Road, Farnborough.

The club is to demolish its pavilion and replace it with a new one which will include a clubroom, bar, kitchen and changing rooms.

A car park with room for 23 vehicles will also be created.
