Councillors have thrown their weight behind Cambridge City FC’s plans for a new stadium at Sawston, saying it would create fantastic new facilities for the community.
The proposals approved at the latest meeting of the council’s planning committee include a new stadium for the Lilywhites, along with a neighbouring artificial grass pitch and spectator area.
Councillors heard that the development will provide sporting facilities for many local teams, people and families, and bring forward extra recreational opportunities for the whole village of Sawston.
The committee also noted that 600 local people signed a petition in favour of the new stadium, with every signatory urging the council to “facilitate the proposal as soon as possible”.
