The club have submitted plans to the local Rushcliffe Borough Council and are seeking planning permission to build a new 10,000 capacity Main (Peter Taylor) Stand on one side of the City Ground. This all seated, three-tiered stand will also have a number of executive boxes and other corporate facilities, plus new changing rooms and press facilities. A nice feature is that the stand will also include a Club Museum as well as a new Club Shop. If planning permission is granted early in the new year, then the club intends to start the demolition of the current stand at the end of this current season.
The City Ground With New Stand In Foreground
The Club hopes to have around 5,000 seats in the new stand available to supporters in October/November 2020, with the whole stand taking 15 months to complete, meaning that it should be open for the start of the 2021/22 season. The overall capacity of the City Ground will rise to around 36,000. The club are also considering replacing the roof/increasing the capacity of the Bridgford End. If this were to take place then it would be after the Peter Taylor Stand has been completed.
