Stadium plans put on display
10:30am Monday 11th March 2013 in News
A CONSULTATION will be held today over development plans for the Abbey Stadium site.
Developer Persimmon Homes Wessex is holding a public exhibition at the Abbey Stadium between 10am and 8pm today to give residents the opportunity to drop in and discuss a draft proposal for 184 homes in Salzgitter Drive.
In August 2011, outline planning permission was granted by the council for the demolition of the stadium and construction of a new stadium with youth training facilities, 16,745sq metres of business floor space, a residential care home and 450 homes.
When granting outline planning permission, the section 106 agreement recognised the need for housing to enable the new stadium development and allows for up to 200 dwellings to be built and occupied before a contract for the new stadium can start.
This is the first phase of the development with details of the stadium subject to future consultation.
