Memorial Stadium Club Statement
Sainsburys receive approval to redevelop Mem
Councillors voted to approve Sainsbury’s plans to redevelop the Memorial Stadium site on Wednesday evening.
The decision will now be referred to the Secretary of State, who now has twenty-one days to comment on the scheme.
Bristol Rovers will begin building the new UWE Stadium at Frenchay and construction could start as early as June 2013.
Bristol Rugby have agreed terms to remain at the Memorial Stadium for the 2013/14 campaign.
The Club will then consider their long-term options over the duration of next season.
