York Community Stadium plan “go ahead”

This afternoons Planning Commitee meeting has given approval to the application to build a new Community Stadium at Monks Cross. The application was approved by 11 votes to 4.

The development will mainly be funded from the proceeds of a neighbouring development which will see a John Lewis and a Marks & Spencer (homeware) store constructed.

The decision comes after a lenthy 8 hour committee meeting. The scheme attracted support from LibDem and Labour Councillors while Tory and Green representatives opposed the plan.

The plan may still be “called in” by central government for review.
