Public to have their say on City supporters trust’s stadium plan
WORCESTER City Supporters’ Trust will put their scheme for a new football stadium at Perdiswell to the public before submitting them to Worcester City Council.
The organisation last month revealed plans to construct a ground next to the leisure centre in Bilford Road by the end of 2015 because they don’t believe the Blue Square Bet North club’s proposed relocation to Nunnery Way will ever happen.
Worcester City FC have a contract with developer St Modwen to build on the land next to the M5 until 2017.
The Trust had hoped to submit their plans for the community facility, likely to cost around £2million, to Worcester City Council this month but are still making revisions following discussions with the local authority.
Keen to ensure no mistakes are made, they will instead call a public meeting in the near future to canvass opinion.
Trust spokesman Rob Crean said: “The plans are being revised but in the meantime the supporters’ trust is looking to do some form of public consultation to outline what the plans are and to seek feedback.
“It’s a one-off deal and we need to make sure it’s correct. We are dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.”
