Yeovil Town Chairman John Fry has commented on the club’s new planning proposals at their Huish Park site following the announcement of a Public Consultation process next week.

It’s not long since we withdrew the supermarket planning application. 

Why consult again and why now?

“The evolving proposals are very different to the previous application and they do not include a supermarket. 

“Through our Supporter Development Consultant, David Bell, much has been undertaken and achieved in the past 7 months.

“We started by assessing the needs of our football and our community businesses at Championship/League One level. Our main aim was to find ways of providing a better use of the stadium and site by our supporters and the local community on a 7 days a week cycle.

"It is these evolving thoughts and ideas upon which we will be consulting. We would like our fans and the general public to consider the exhibition material, discuss matters with the club’s Planning Consultancy Team and give feedback.”
