Green light for Forest Green Rovers stadium

Forest Green Rovers have been given the green light for its new sustainable stadium after being granted outline planning permission.

After rejection in June, Stroud District Council’s planning committee has voted in favour of revised designs, with six in favour and four against.

Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, Eco Park will be the first all wood football stadium, with almost every element made from sustainably sourced timber.

Located at junction 13 of the M5, Eco Park will also feature landscaped parking and two pitches, one of which will be a 4G playing surface, with access for the local community.
