Gloucester City AFC are pleased to announce that plans for the club’s new ground will be discussed at the next meeting of Gloucester City Council’s Planning Committee.
The meeting takes place in Committee Rooms 1 & 2 at North Warehouse on Tuesday September 4, starting from 6pm.
The planning committee will discuss the planning application for a new ground on Sudmeadow Road submitted by the club in January 2011 and validated in December 2011. Coming five years, one month and 10 days after our old ground Meadow Park was destroyed by flood water we hope this meeting will allow the club to finally begin its journey back to our home City.
The date of the meeting does clash with our league fixture against Brackley but efforts are being made to rearrange the game.
Fans are welcome to attend the meeting but should bear in mind that space is limited at North Warehouse and council rules means they will not be allowed to ask questions or speak during the meeting. We hope to see as many yellow and black shirts as possible in attendance to show support to the club as the plans are presented.
At the moment we are waiting to see the planning officers’ report which will be published next week, this will outline what the officers will recommend the action the councillors on the committee should take.
Once we’ve seen the report we will prepare our case to present to the committee at the meeting, we are planning for all eventualities at the moment.
Rest assured we are ready.
