Gloucester City AFC would like to give a further update on progress towards full planning approval for our new stadium. \r\n\r\nWhilst it had been hoped to put the application in by the end of October progress on a couple of the conditions has taken a little longer than expected.\r\n\r\nIt is of course vital to ensure they are completed to the standard required so taking an extra few weeks is sensible, with the application still expected to go in to the council during November.\r\n\r\nAs per our previous update we are expecting this to take a little time to be approved by the council due to the pressure of work the planning department are experiencing so we are continuing to work closely with them and do not expect this slightly later application to result in a delay in the council’s deliberations.\r\n\r\nThe club still expects to achieve full planning permission very early in the New Year.\r\n\r\nMeanwhile we are continuing to work with the football authorities to maximise the assistance we can achieve from the various funding bodies this work continues in parallel to the planning application.\r\n\r\nThe club would like to express its continued thanks to the Council and to the many people who are showing huge commitment in helping to bring this hugely complicated project to full planning approval, and ultimately to a return to the City for the season after next.
