Board accept club's planning application

Cherries chief executive Neill Blake has expressed his gratitude after the club’s planning applications were accepted.

The club were proposing to put fencing around the Kings Park training pitches, as well as building a new training pavilion and a broadcasting cabin, TV studio and boiler room for under pitch heating.

The broadcast cabin TV studio and boiler room are all included in the requirements of the club by the Premier League, whilst the training pavilion and fencing around the training pitches will improve the facilities Eddie Howe’s squad use as they prepare for life in the top flight.

Around 200 people attended an exhibition of the plans in Champions Top Floor Restaurant last month, before they were approved by Bournemouth council today.

“I am very pleased that AFC Bournemouth's planning applications have today been granted by the town's Special Planning Board,”
Blake told

“It's vital that we have the backing of the town and its officials as we go into our first season in England's top flight, and I think this decision shows that we now have.

“Establishing ourselves in the Barclays Premier League is our aim and these minor tweaks will make a big difference to us going forward. We hope that we can achieve our aims and make this town proud.

“Our thanks go to the members of the planning board who came to the decision and all the supporters who helped the application with their positive comments.”
