Supporters' Trust reveal drawings for Perdiswell stadium
HERE is the first drawing of Worcester City Supporters’ Trust’s proposal for a new stadium at Perdiswell.
Nearly two months after announcing their plans, the group are close to submitting an application to Worcester City Council and will hold a public consultation at Perdiswell Leisure Centre on Thursday, April 4.
As shown, the proposal, a community facility, would feature a stadium with a capacity of 4,130, including a 500-seater stand.
It would be built next to the proposed new swimming pool, also shown on the drawing, while the current leisure centre would be pulled down in 2016 and become car parking.
To the side of the stadium would be a floodlit all-weather pitch, two nine-a-side grass pitches and three of the exisiting pitches on the Bilford Road site.
The trust have also agreed to relocate the existing changing rooms and Perdiswell Golf Club shop.
Costing around £2million in total, the scheme has been put forward by the trust as a possible new home for Worcester City as there is no sign of anything being built by St Modwen at Nunnery Way.
