NEW football pitches could be created in Oakham if councillors move forward with plans on Tuesday.

Rutland County Council will hold an extraordinary cabinet meeting on Tuesday to consider plans to invest £250,000 on new football pitches and changing rooms next to the Rutland County College site in Barleythorpe.

The cabinet is also being recommended to approve putting £30,000 into investigating the possibility of providing a martial arts centre, either at Rutland County College or on the Hawksmead development.

The pitches would be used by Oakham United and the martial arts centre would be used by Vale Judo Club.
