MANSFIELD Town Football Club have submitted a planning application to build a state-of-the-art indoor training facility next to the One Call Stadium.
The club hope to have the building, new car park and access road off Quarry Lane, built by the start of the 2013/14 football season.
The entire building will be a ‘three-staged development building’, incorporating a training area, offices, a gym, large meeting room, bar area and two changing rooms. It will be roofed by a three-tier solar panel.
The project has been designed by MW Caddy architects who hope to reveal images to Chad shortly.
Paul Broughton, the Stags’ operations director, said: “This is a hugely positive move for the club. The training barn will be a state of the art facility and will give our players a first class training base, right next to the stadium.
“Its main purpose is, of course, to enhance our players’ development. It will also be available for use to the community soon after it is up and running.
“It is all part of our long-term commitment to improve all areas of the football club and take us to the next level,” he added.
The plans are out for public consultation until 20th February before the proposal will be called before the planning committee.
