Bristol mayor George Ferguson backs Ashton Gate plans
BRISTOL'S mayor George Ferguson has welcomed the new plan for Ashton Gate, saying it has the potential to "bring the community and the fans together".
Mr Ferguson, who spoke out against a supermarket at Ashton Gate before he was elected as mayor, said he was impressed with the plans and reassured the club that the city council would be as helpful as it could be in making them a reality.
That meant, he told The Post, being "fair, reasonable, realistic and helpful over 106 agreements" – the financial conditions placed on planning consent.
He also welcomed the club's proposal for a new railway station near the ground: "I would like to be as helpful as I can about the re-opening of a station at Ashton Gate. It could well complement the new rail link from London to Temple Meads."
