Petition started to oppose clubhouse plans at Tredworth Rugby Club
FURIOUS residents are opposing plans for a new clubhouse.
Tredworth Rugby Club is waiting for planning permission to build on The Lannet.
But Linden Residents' Association is opposing the plans, objecting to the location, the extra cars and late night noise from functions and parties at the venue.
Linda Ackroyd, from the association, said: "One of my main concerns is the location of the clubhouse. People do not want it, it will be a shame because people will park their cars on the grass.

"If the new clubhouse is built we will have a lot of mess around the area from the parties."
At the moment, Tredworth Rugby Club is trying to raise £8,000 for the planning application, design, and council and solicitors fees.
Mary Hamilton, who lives on The Lannet, is against the idea. She said: "I don't want it. I bought my house because of the views and the open area.
"I heard there were a lot of parties in their old site in Tredworth and I don't want that noise in this area. My grandchildren often come and I am concerned about the cars that will be parked on The Lannet."
John White, of The Lannet, said: "My question is why did that old site in Tredworth get closed down?
"When I leave my house at night, and there has been a rugby match I often cannot get into my house because of all the cars. I don't want to hear hello Barry, goodbye Joe, see you tomorrow every night. There will be too much noise with the club here."
A petition is also being drawn up by residents.
Reg Daldry, managing director of the club, said: "The club house is right for the area, it is beneficial for the youth and the residents.
"Highways have approved it. No cars will be parked near any of the houses but in the car park.
"We attended the residents' meetings and discussed any concerns they had, only six out of 37 objected to it.
"The old site was closed because of the location."
