Nottingham Forest issues statement after City Ground main stand development approved

Nottingham Forest Football Club is delighted at today’s decision of the Rushcliffe Borough Council Planning Committee to uphold the recommendation of its Planning Officers that the Club’s application for planning permission to redevelop the Main Stand on the City Ground site should be approved.

Today’s decision represents a significant landmark in the journey to redevelop the historic City Ground site and represents the culmination of 3 years of dedicated work by the Club and its advisers.
We believe that the development of the site is crucial to maintaining the club’s status in the Premier League and all of the benefits to the local community and economy which this status brings.
The development will also represent the physical manifestation of the desire of the Club’s owner Mr Marinakis to leave a historic legacy at the football Club.
The decision now opens the door to the Club to have detailed discussions with its advisers and partners on how and when the development will be delivered.
These discussions will be undertaken as soon as practicable and the club remains determined to provide the wonderful supporters of the Club with a stadium of which they can be truly proud in the modern era.
