Cllr Small said: “While we cannot pre-determine the outcome of any planning applications on the site, we want to make it very clear as an Administration that we don’t support changing the designation for the stadium from its current leisure use, which is protected by existing planning consents.

“We are continuing the work to ensure that the planning conditions on the site haven't been breached and will take action where they have.”
