Chesterfield get stadium go-ahead


Chesterfield have been granted planning permission by the town's Borough Council to build a new stadium.

The plans, which have been approved subject to conditions, were rubber-stamped unanimously by the council following a meeting on Tuesday evening.

Chesterfield would leave Saltergate to move to a 10,000 seater stadium in the Whittington Moor area of the town.

The plans include a supermarket and business premises which will occupy the rest of the 22-acre site.

The stadium would be part of the the regeneration of a former glass manufacturing factory site.

Chesterfield chairman Barrie Hubbard: "We feel elated that at last we are getting somewhere and congratulate the development team in putting together such a comprehensive regeneration plan that has been unanimously approved."

Football has been played at Saltergate, also known as the Recreation ground, since 1871.
