Dawn responds to Town Green news

Ashton Vale BCFC site

Yesterday, Dawn Primarolo, MP for Bristol South, was surprised to learn that the site of the proposed new Bristol City Football Club stadium in Ashton Vale has been recommended to be given Town Green status. 

Responding to the news, Dawn said:

"I know that Bristol City Football Club and its supporters will be hugely disappointed by this recommendation.  I have always supported the building of the new stadium and, while I appreciate the concerns of some of the residents of Ashton Vale, believe that the new stadium and the jobs it will create are enormously important for the continuing regeneration of Bristol South.  I know that the club will want to reflect on what steps to take next, but I can assure them that I will continue to do everything I can to support City’s ambitions."
