Gloucester Cricket Floodlight Planning Application Approved

Bristol City Council’s Development Control Committee has today approved planning permission for the installation of permanent floodlights at Gloucestershire Cricket’s Bristol County Ground.

Will Brown, Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted that the Committee has come to this decision as it finally allows us to realise our ambitions to bring International Cricket to Bristol.

“We would like to thank everyone who has helped us develop these plans, particularly our neighbours whom we have continued to work with since February.  We will continue to work with them and officers to ensure the Floodlight Management Plan is in place before we start using the lights.”

Will added: “We will now work towards installing the lights ahead of the start of the 2016 season.”
