City’s new stadium bid submitted to the council

Worcester Editorial 23rd Apr, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

WORCESTER City have officially submitted their plans for a new community stadium to the city council.

The football club, together with its Supporters’ Trust have been working tirelessly over the past 18 months to put together a proposal for a new development at Perdiswell, which they finally handed in last Wednesday (April 16).

In November last year, the Trust held a meeting to set out plans for the 4,130 seater stadium, which will include one main seating stand and a standing terrace, house a 3G pitch, three full size grass pitches outside, two nine aside grass pitches and conference and classroom facilities.

WCFCST, who have shelled out £16,000 for costs and surveys on the planned ground, will also own the stadium.

The news comes as a big boost for the Blue and Whites, whose long-running saga with their Nunnery Way contract was put to bed earlier this year before the club retained their Skrill Conference North status for another season.

Worcester City Council confirmed to the Observer the planning application had been received.
