Plans for a redeveloped sports stadium in Swindon have suffered a setback after council planners recommended they be refused.
The stadium was planned to be open by 2009
The Abbey Stadium in Blunsdon would be the home of Swindon Speedway, which was facing a move out of the town.
Planners are concerned that nearby land is set aside for a business park, and that the application wants to turn much of the area into unnecessary housing.
Councillors will make a decision on 11 September.
Planners also raised concerns that the land set aside for the redeveloped stadium is smaller than the current arena.
