New Stadium - Town Pass Birds Test

By: GTFC
Date: 21/09/2007

Last night, the final condition of Town's planning permission for a new stadium at Great Coates has now been approved by North East Lincolnshire Council.

The results of extensive survey work means there must be an agreed management policy for nearly 100 acres of extra land if the stadium is to be realised.

The application can now be sent to Government office for authorisation, a necessary step due to the size of the retail element within the 21,000-seater proposal.

On Wednesday, at Grimsby Town Hall, a vote of eight to two saw the planning committee agree with the council officers' suggestion for co-operation between Natural England, the local authority and GTFC.

There is no insistence that Grimsby Town actually buys the land - a step which could make the scheme financially prohibitive. There is, however, the option for the authority to investigate making a compulsory purchase order should there be complications.

The application will be sent to government office in Leeds next week for their approval. Generally a decision would be made within 28 days of receipt of the application - unless the Secretary of State decides that a public inquiry should be held.
