Capital & Regional opposes the club’s plans because of the retail element, but the club says they are the only way forward.
One plan was for a new stadium to be built on the town centre Power Court site, alongside 550 apartments, bars, restaurants, a 1,800-capacity live venue, a hotel and a car park. To fund the scheme, the club and its development arm, 2020 Developments, also submitted an appliction for a separate mixed-use scheme on the 40-acre Newlands site adjacent to junction 10 of the M1.
The Newlands development would include around 500,000 sq ft of high-spec offices, a leisure hub including a cinema and “aspirational retail space”, it said.
