The bowls green, in Green Lane, saw more than 150 people signing up to be a member.

But despite the Wilson Homes development having been ready for the last year they are still unable to play on it due to a hold up.

The green was put up as part of plans agreed by the developer, which also included a pavilion and social club.

Unhappy resident Norman Bell said: '˜Everyone has been really looking forward to having the bowls green up and ready.

'˜But sadly we are not able to play on it despite it having been ready for a year or more.

'˜A lot of people have signed up to join the club.

'˜It just seems a shame it can't be played on.

'˜Hopefully the issues can be resolved quickly as bowls would provide great exercise and a social outlet for people in the area.'
