Stadium Plans Hit Another Snag

Stadium Plans Hit Another Snag

Bristol City`s plans to develop a new stadium at Ashton Vale look like receiving yet another setback by the local authority.

The problem stems from the supermarket which is in the plans to be built on the ground where Ashton Gate currently stands, it seems that will be refused by councillors acting on advice from planning officers.

The whole idea of City moving relies on the relocation of Sainsburys, but local traders are not happy.

In a statement, City chief executive Colin Sexstone said: 'The recommendation fails to recognise the many benefits this development will bring to the wider area.

'It will bring over £100million of private sector investment and thousands of jobs to the area. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that cannot be overlooked in today`s economic climate.'


Bristol City Council's development control committee is due to consider the plans at its meeting on March 2nd.
