City stadium plans given go-ahead
The Robins have identified land in the Ashton Vale area of the city for a new 30,000 seater stadium and the local council have endorsed the proposed plans in a 139-page document. A club statement read: "Bristol City Football Club is pleased the officers have recommended our application for a new stadium on greenbelt land at Ashton Vale. This is a very significant recommendation. "There are a number of matters that still need resolution, including the pedestrian access to the stadium. "We are confident with the co-operation from Bristol City Council and Network Rail that a satisfactory solution can be achieved at relatively short order."
