Weymouth vision for new stadium


Weymouth have outlined proposals for a state-of-the-art 6,000-seater stadium.

The project will cost 7m-10m, with the bulk of funding provided by the redevelopment of the Terras' existing Wessex Stadium site at Radipole.

The Blue Square Premier outfit's chairman Malcolm Curtis told BBC Radio Solent: "This stadium here is as rotten as a pear.

"It is completely unsustainable and is only used 23 afternoons a year and that cannot be right as a modern facility."

He added: "We need to have a facility that embraces the community seven days a week, every hour of the day and that's what I believe this [new] stadium delivers on."

The club will submit planning permission in early 2009, and completion is scheduled just a few months ahead of the 2012 Olympic Games.

Weymouth and Portland will be hosting the Olympic sailing regatta during the Games.
