TRASHorfield will not be taking their case to the Court of Appeal

We have this afternoon learned that TRASHorfield have confirmed that they are not making an application to the Court of Appeal regarding Sainsbury’s plans to build on the current Memorial Stadium site.

The group have already been denied the right to appeal the result of the Judicial Review, that cleared Bristol City Council of any wrong doing in the planning process.

This now clears the way for the club to finalise the outstanding contractual issues which have been slowed down because of this process.

We are delighted that TRASHorfield have finally accepted the democratic decision that has been made.

Not only is the UWE Stadium vital to the future of Bristol Rovers, the projects on both sites will provide much needed job opportunities for the local community.

We now have to assess the financial impact this delay has had on the Stadium project and do what we can to minimise the effect of these losses.

We would again like to thank everyone who has supported us through this process, and we will keep you up to date on any progress with the project as and when it happens.
