New Stadium Update

The “Warwick District Council Forward Plan July 2024” published today [24th June’24] has a key decision about the new stadium to be considered in private by the WDC cabinet on 4th Sep’24:

Community Stadium at Fusiliers Way (1,470)
To seek approval to progress the project to construct a Community Stadium on land next to Fusiliers Way.
It is anticipated that part or all of this item will be considered in private by virtue of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972, following the Local Government (Access to Information) (Variation) Order 2006 because it will contain information relating to the financial or business affairs of the Council.

UPDATE Mon 1st July:
Brakes Trust member John Glendinning has dug out a bit more information:

Upcoming WDC cabinet meeting papers have some interesting teasers on where the Community Stadium project is going. Still in updated master plan but lower priority than other projects. Looks like September for key decisions on funding and scope…

The ‘wider connections’ plan seems to hint at arrangement with the Co-op for matchday parking, which seems sensible from a land use perspective rather than surrounding the stadium with parking that only fills for a couple of hours a week…
