Louth Town Football Club says it is ‘delighted’ that East Lindsey District Council has today agreed to sell the Club five acres of land on Louth’s Fairfield Industrial Estate.
The site, at the northern edge, is where the Club hopes to develop its new ground.
If planning permission can be secured, the club will then work with the Lincolnshire FA and District Council to develop a funding package for other elements of the projects, including a stadium and Astroturf Pitch.
Vice Chairman at Louth Town FC, Lee Freeman, said: “This is a major step forward in securing the future of Louth Town FC and we are grateful for the support we’ve received from the District Council. We must now work hard to seek funding opportunities to make this a reality.”
Portfolio Holder for Leisure, Coun Adam Grist, said: “Football is an important part of the community in Louth and if planning permission can be secured and Louth Town FC can develop the right funding package, this will hopefully secure the Club’s future for many years to come.”
