The planning committee at Wrexham County Borough Council approved the Club’s proposal to redevelop the Kop on November 7, 2022.
The formal permission was received on January 12, 2023, following the successful resolution of the delegated matters and agreement over the conditions.
The planning permission that is now on the public record, includes a condition to the effect that the 5,500-capacity Kop can only be used by 4,900 spectators until such time as the phosphates impact can be accurately quantified and an appropriate mitigation identified.
Accepting this condition now, allows the Kop works to progress and remain on schedule to be completed prior to the commencement of the 2024/25 season.
The Club’s advisors now have 12 months to secure the removal of this condition and there are no significant concerns around achieving this.
