Bristol City stadium plans face court challenge

Bristol City Football Club’s plans to move into a new 30,000 capacity stadium at Ashton Vale will be challenged in court.

NCE understands that lawyers representing an unnamed individual have written to Bristol City Council seeking a judicial review over the council’s decision to reject land at Ashton Vale to be registered as a town and village green. The decision was taken in June and allows the stadium to be built.

In a statement the club said the news of the letter being submitted so late in the three month appeal process is “disappointing”.

However, the club said it considers the city council’s decision “robust” and it expects any review of the decision to be rejected in court.
