BU Community Business is undertaking a range of capital works to enhance the quality and provision of the site for the benefit of all users.

BU Community Business is undertaking a range of works to enhance the facilities and grounds at Chapel Gate.

The 65-acre site, located next to Bournemouth Airport, features a range of facilities for community and university sport. 

Over 100 individual improvements have already been completed since BU Community Business purchased Chapel Gate in July 2019.  

These include the repair of floodlights, new wayfinding signage to help people get around the site, enhancements to the main clubhouse building, and work to improve drainage across the site.

Planned improvements include new turf maintenance equipment to improve grass pitch quality, repairs to the car park, and the installation of new LED floodlights.

Subject to planning approval, the hockey pitch will also be refurbished – with new surfacing, pitch barriers and technical areas with team shelters. A new hockey warm up area is also planned.

We’re committed to ensuring sporting activities continue to thrive at Chapel Gate.

We’ve already made a number of improvements to the grounds and facilities and our continued investment will benefit community and university sport for years to come.
