A North Somerset football club has applied for planning permission to renovate its training grounds.

Banwell Football Club, which is based in Riverside, is looking to install new changing rooms, a food hut and an ice cream kiosk.

It has submitted a planning application to North Somerset Council for the work, which also includes increasing the car park to make room for 50 spaces – 24 more than is currently there.

The club has also recently applied for planning permission to convert neighbouring farmland into three extra pitches.

The club says it needs the extra pitches as the number of teams playing for the village has grown.
