Safe Run-off Areas required for existing GAA Pitches
« on: January 13, 2021, 08:47:50 AM »
For new pitches the GAA Guidance seems to be for the allowance of 5m run-off zone around a playing field.
However, i cannot seem to find guidance on the requirement for existing pitches or whether there is a minimum that must be achieved at existing pitches.
the context is that we will be doing some work (new boundary fence and spectator stand) adjacent an exiting pitch and i am wondering if the 5m restriction would apply due to the new work or whether the old and established fence line could be retained?
if the 5m rule were required it would result in either reducing the size of the pitch or reducing the space for the spectator stand.
any direction towards written guidance would be appreciated - need to make sure we are covered.
