Plans to build 33 flats alongside Aberystwyth Town FC's stadium have been given the go-ahead.

The sale of land next to the ground at Park Avenue for social housing along with match funding from the Football Association of Wales will allow the club to install a 3G pitch.

The club and housing association Tai Ceredigion originally wanted to build 80 flats and create a new 500-seater stand along with a new clubhouse.

But Ceredigion council rejected it.

A council statement said the plans had been approved subject to changes being made to an access road to the development.
