Sawston: An Update

Cambridge City Football Club can confirm that development of the new stadium site at Sawston re-started last week.

Work was put on hold in recent months whilst the club waited for a discharge of planning conditions to be passed by South Cambridgeshire District Council. This was eventually passed in February meaning that work could re-start on the stadium which will offer a new home for the Lilywhites and provide a new community facility for Sawston and the surrounding area.

The photos show the access road beginning to take shape after it was raised ahead of putting foundations in. The other photos show areas of the site which are currently being cleared and levelled.

City Chairman Kevin Satchell said "Although we are waiting for the outcome of the Judicial Review, the approval of the discharge of conditions has allowed us to get back on site and continue with the enabling works. I hope Supporters can see from the latest photos how big the site will be and it is encouraging to see the access road take shape. Hopefully if we can avoid any more delays we will be able to make some real progress in the coming months with our new home which will hopefully both inspire and excite our supporters".
