Wasps reaction to planning approval for training ground

Following unanimous approval by Coventry City Council’s Planning Committee for Wasps training ground proposal at the Alan Higgs Centre, Wasps Group CEO David Armstrong said:

“We are pleased with the outcome of today’s meeting and will be engaging in the next steps requested by the Planning Committee. We look forward to resolving the conditions imposed to move the process forward.

“We understand the sensitivities regarding the location of the training base. As previously covered, we have offered CCFC’s Academy use of the indoor kicking barn facility on a commercial basis during set periods of the week and are keen to hold discussions with the football club about how this may work. We also remain open to further discussions with CSF and CCFC about any other ways we might be able to assist with the future of the Academy.”
