Sainsbury's supermarket at Rovers' ground recommended for approval
Councillors are being urged to give the go-ahead for a Sainsbury's supermarket at Bristol Rovers' ground in Horfield.
But if approval is given, the plan will be put before the Secretary of State for a final decision.
The recommendation opens the door to the football club moving to a new £40 million stadium in Stoke Gifford.
The club cannot afford a new home without the Sainsbury's money to help fund the move.

Councillors will meet at 6pm in City Hall next Wednesday to discuss the decision.
The club has entered into a unique partnership with the University of the West of England to build the new stadium.
It would be sited on land near the MoD procurement base at Abbeywood.
In July last year, South Gloucestershire Council approved plans for the stadium subject to conditions.
