Swann ‘very hopeful’ of securing permission for stadium redevelopment


Peter Swann has said that he hopes Scunthorpe United will get the go ahead to redevelop Glanford Park in the next couple of weeks.

The plans are currently under review by North Lincolnshire Council and the Iron chairman told BBC Radio Humberside that he was ‘very hopeful’ the club would secure permission to start work on the site.

“At the minute we are two weeks away from the planning decision, which we are very hopeful will go through”, Swann told BBC Radio Humberside.

“At the need of this month we will be able to update everybody on that”.

Swann confirmed that if given the green light, work would commence behind the Clugston Stand in the New Year.

“As soon as the decision comes through we will start tendering which will be the back end of this year or next year.”

Meanwhile, Swann refused to comment on the ongoing legal proceedings over the site of failed stadium relocation project.

“I can’t possibly tell you anything about that. We are in legals and that’s where we are at the minute”, he said.
