June 2021

Scheme Overview
Weston-super-Mare AFC is developing plans for new housing, a new sports bar and restaurant, a gym open to the community, new hospitality and function rooms, and a new changing and training facility at The Optima Stadium. The proposals include:
  • Construction of up to 99 apartments, located on the eastern part of the site next to Winterstoke Road
  • Improvements to the hospitality and event facilities for the club, the fans and the community
  • Increased stadium capacity with a new stand (750 seats) and extra terraces
We are currently preparing a Hybrid Planning Application. Full Planning approval is being sought for the football club elements, whilst the residential element will be secured through an outline application.The outline application will seek approval for the principle of development, access and scale of the residential element, with the final design detail and appearance subject to a subsequent reserved matters application.

It is proposed the new club facilities would be built first, so that the club could operate as normal, with the residential development to follow straight after.

We are keen to hear your views before we finalise the proposals in readiness for the submission of our hybrid planning application this summer. All comments received will be reflected in a Report of Community Involvement which will accompany the planning submission. This survey will remain open until Friday 25 June 2021.
