The planning application: 16/AP/4051 (October 2016)
A second planning application was submitted in October 2016, without any publicity, to remove five clauses from the current stadium land that prevent anyone from building on it. The public consultation was open until 26th November 2016.
On 24th November 2016 the council decided to reject this planning application. The decision notice is available to read online, as is the Officer’s Report.
