UWE welcome news that Bristol Rovers new stadium can go ahead
The vice chancellor of the University of the West of England says last night's vote by Bristol City councillors to approve the building of a Sainsbury's on the site of the Memorial Stadium is a "significant" step forward.
The 6 votes to 3 win for Sainsbury's means the funding will be available to build the new £40m ground close to the UWE campus at Stoke Gifford.
The approval means that, subject to Secretary of State sign off, the work will begin on the new UWE Stadium this summer.UWE Vice-Chancellor, Professor Steve West, says, "Last night's decision is a very significant marker in the progress of this important project that will see UWE Bristol become one of two Universities in the UK with a Stadium on campus. The benefits to our students and the local community will be immeasurable as the stadium will mean access to excellent sporting and community facilities."This has been a long process and we have worked very closely with Bristol Rovers and Sainsbury's to ensure that the plans have been both consultative and coordinated. It's fantastic news for Bristol Rovers and for Bristol in general. I am absolutely delighted that the UWE Stadium looks to be going ahead."
