A decision is finally set to be made tomorrow (Wednesday) on whether or not a state-of-the-art football training facility will be built in Failand.
Bristol City Football Club’s proposal to build three training pitches, a pavilion and a 500-seat stadium at Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital (QEH) school, in Clevedon Road, was recommended for approval by North Somerset Council officers.
But at the council’s last planning and regulatory committee meeting on August 8, councillors agreed to defer a decision to allow for a site meeting, which took place yesterday (Monday).
Another meeting of the council committee will take place tomorrow (Wednesday) where councillors will report back from the visit.
The plans have not been supported by Long Ashton and Wraxall and Failand parish councils, who site it as an ‘inappropriate development in the greenbelt’ while Long Ashton Golf Club members have also voiced concerns.
