New plans for Salford Reds stadium
posted by: M44 - Thursday 18th September, 2008
Plans for the new home of Salford City Reds are to be scaled down but the 20,000 capacity should remain.
Bosses at Peel Holdings, which took over the development this year after Red City Developments went into administration, say they are still looking at new designs for the stadium which now wont include a 210 room hotel or exhibition centre. However, they are confident the 20,000 capacity will be preserved as per the original plans.
Mike Butterworth of Peel Holdings said "There will be some changes to the original plans and we are working on what these are going to be.
It will still be a 20,000 capacity stadium. It is still our intention to build a hotel at the site but it will be a stand alone building instead of part of the stadium.
We still expect the stadium to be ready for 2010."
Club Chairman, John Wilkinson welcomed the news. He said "we are very positive that the stadium will be ready on time. It's still going to be an iconic stadium."
A council spokesman said the new plans shouldn't affect the planning application but added, they "are now awaiting more details on how the development will take shape."
