Planning Permission Applications Extended
for the New Stadium to 30th April
I am delighted to inform you that South Gloucestershire Council has kindly extended their deadline for you to send in your letters and emails of support for our planning application to build a new 21,700 all-seater stadium at the UWE at Frenchay to the 30th April.
If you have not already responded to South Gloucestershire Council, then please do so by the 30th April. You do not have to live in South Gloucestershire to support this application.
How To Do This:
1.     Please write a letter of support to South Gloucestershire Council.
2.     Each letter of support must be written and sent by you as an individual and written as a letter, addressed to Helen Ainsley, Major Sites Team, South Gloucestershire  Council, Council Offices, Badminton Road, Yate BS37 5AF or respond on the South Gloucestershire Council website 
3.     If you are writing as a family or couple a joint letter will only count as one. Therefore, if there are more than one of you who supports this scheme then please send a letter from EACH of you (even though you may be at the same address) and the wording on each letter MUST be different – otherwise again, it will only be counted as one letter.
The Letter should contain the following information about WHY YOU THINK the new stadium will be beneficial to you and the community who lives around you.
Here are just a few ideas and I am sure you will have your own ideas:
It will be great for you and your local community because:
        It offers great educational opportunities because of its tie-up with the UWE
        There will be unrivalled transport links – rail, bus
        This facility will help the wider community of South Gloucestershire, the wider Bristol area and the whole the South West with a 21st century state-of-the-art facility
        We need a new sports facility in South Gloucestershire – something we don’t have at the moment
        It will create new jobs
       It’s making great use of an existing site by offering new recreational facilities
        There will be events held there which all my family can attend and enjoy
Thank you for your support.
