Bristol Rovers have today been given the green light to go ahead and start the build of the new UWE Stadium after Sainsbury`s were given the go ahead to redevelop the Memorial Stadium site, paving the way for the new UWE Stadium to be built.

Last week, a High Court judge heard evidence in a legal challenge brought by campaign group TRASHorfield. It said planning permission for a store to be built on The Memorial ground failed to consider the impact on local shops.

But Mr Justice Hickinbottom dismissed the complaint from the traders’ group. The plans for the 21,700 all-seater stadium include an extensive club shop, banqueting and hospitality suite, convenience store, gym, jogging track and teaching space. Its hoping Rovers will be able to move in to the UWE Stadium during the 2015/2016 season
