Former Matthew Humberstone Playing Field
This site is roughly square in shape and is almost 2.8ha in area. It is within the ownership of North East Lincolnshire Council. The site historically formed part of the playing fields associated with Matthew Humberstone School which sits beyond the site’s northern boundary. The school has been vacant since approximately 2010.
The site itself is grassed. Wrought iron railings and landscaping secure its perimeter. Access to the field was historically taken through the school itself, from Clee Road.
In terms of local character, properties to the east, south and west are predominantly two storey semi-detached and linked dwellings. They are mostly brick and have concrete or plain tiles to their roofs, which are largely hipped.
In terms of the site’s position with regard to amenities, it is close to Cleethorpes and Grimsby town centres. There are bus stops immediately adjacent the site on Davenport Drive, Curzon Avenue and Sandringham Road. The nearest primary School is Thrunscoe Academy and the nearest secondary school is The Holy Family Catholic Academy. There is a local centre on Sandringham Road (less than 100 away to the south).
