Work on AFC Fyldes new stadium set to start

Work will start on a major £18m stadium and retail park development on March 9th it has been confirmed.

Building work for the Mill Farm project at Wesham - between Preston and Blackpool – including a 6,000 capacity stadium for conference North side AFC Fylde – is set to get underway.

In a statement a spokesman for the club said the project would begin next month after the final legal documents were signed with Fylde Council.

 A spokesman said: “Next week we will be announcing which firm has won the building contract but they have already informed us they will be starting on site week commencing March 9.”
The spokesman added the plans, which include an Aldi supermarket, pub, petrol station and other retail units is still subject to challenge under judicial review, but they remained “resonably confident” this would not happen.

The judicial review period started two weeks ago and will last for six weeks.
