Abbey stadium gets the green light


Cambridge United announced today ((Monday) that its long-awaited redevelopment plans for the Abbey Stadium are to go ahead.

The announcement follows a decision by the Environment Secretary to allow the city council to lease extra land nearby. The land will be used by allotment holders who have been forced to give up their plots to allow the extention of the stadium.

Work is to start immediately on clearing the land to generate new plots. Meanwhile, Cambridge United is launching a fund-raising programme.
