Strawberry Place - Planning Objections

Strawberry PlaceNUST have previously reported on the proposed development at Strawberry Place - having met developers acting on behalf of Mike Ashley. We can now report that following the submission of a planning application 2015/1778/01/DET by developers Maricco Ltd, NUST have filed an objection to the planning application. All objections can be viewed here on the Council's website. Alternatively goto search and then enter 2015/1778/01/DET. Please feel free to register your own objections to this scheme which will prevent forever any expansion of the ground. NUST believe that the 52,000 capacity would not be enough if Newcastle were in Leicester's position and that this is an extremely shortsighted move.

NUST's objection contains the draft report commissioned by NUFC and Newcastle Council about extending the stadium - which NUFC originally denied could be done.

Norman Watson Chair of NUST stated '"we have been observing the proposed development for some time and have met with developers to discuss their plans. It is clear that the proposal will prevent any future ground expansion which is of concern to NUST and many supporters"
