The University of Derby is planning a £9m expansion of its sports facilities including a new sports hall.
The complex would be located on the university’s Kedleston campus and, if approved, would be finished in 2013.
Director of Derbyshire Sport David Joy said the university needed new facilities to compete with nearby sport centres like Loughborough.
The facilities, including a two-storey pavilion, would be open to both students and the local community.
Derby City Council has recently announced plans for a £20m sports and concert venue at Pride Park, including a velodrome, which is expected to open in 2014.Follow @csabian
