Forest Green Stadium Plans Rejected In UK

GLOUCESTERSHIRE, England (CelebrityAccess) An ambitious stadium plan for the Forest Green Rovers Football Club in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, England, has been rejected by planners.

The football club planned to build a 5,000-seat, carbon-neutral, all wood stadium near Stroud, Gloucester but Stroud District councilors voted against the proposal by a majority of three, according to Pan Stadia. The councilors cited concerns over noise, traffic and the impact on the landscape.

Plans included a car park for 1,700 vehicles and two full-size grass practice pitches.

The stadium was expected to be the centerpiece of a £100 million Eco Park development, and that is obviously been scrapped.

The club chairman said he was disappointed by the decision.
