Have your say

Councillors will discuss plans to build a £5m football ground and sports centre.

Stamford Town Council’s planning committee will hold its monthly meeting at the town hall in St Mary’s Street on Tuesday.

On the agenda is the joint plan between Stamford AFC, the Burghley House Preservation Trust and New College Stamford to build on land off Ryhall Road.

Outline plans for the facility were approved by South Kesteven District Council in March. Councillors will be discussing an amendment to the entrance to the ground which has been made to address safety fears.

The Daniels will use the new floodlit football ground and the building at weekends and New College students and other community groups that currently use the college’s amenities in Drift Road will use the building during the week.

Town councillors will discuss the application and pass their recommendations on to the district council for consideration.

Ten other applications are also on the agenda. Members of the public are welcome to speak at the meeting, which starts at 7pm.
