A decision on whether to grant Forest Green Rovers permission for its proposed 5,000-seat wooden stadium, is set to take place a week before Christmas.
A Stroud District Council spokesman confirmed a second attempt to determine the football club’s eco-friendly stadium, planned to be built near junction 13 of the M5, is expected to be held on December 18.
The authority’s development control committee rejected the League Two side’s proposed arena in June by a majority of three, over concerns of noise, traffic, and the impact on the landscape and the local community.
Plans also include a 1,700-space car park and two grass training pitches.
FGR chairman Dale Vince had hoped the “sustainable stadium”, designed by Zaha Hadid, would allow his team to aim for promotion, and said during the council meeting it would bring employment and investment opportunities to Stroud.
The club's current ground in Nailsworth, called the New Lawn, is powered by renewable energy, recycles rain water and serves vegan food to players, staff and fans.
