Aston Local Plan
 

The Aston Local Plan Cover
The Aston Local Plan, adopted in September 1998

The Aston Local Plan addresses a range of planning and transportation issues in north Aston and Witton. This area is in the Perry Barr Parliamentary Constituency approximately 4 kilometres north east of the city centre. The most significant issue is the impact caused by Aston Villa Football Club. One of the plan's main objectives is to provide the context for any future development of the Aston Villa Football Club ground. It recognises the benefits of creating a 'European Class' stadium which could potentially host major events and promote the City on the international stage, but also highlights the need to ensure that any proposal does not place additional and unacceptable burdens on the local community.

The Council has approved planning applications, submitted by Aston Villa Football Club to expand the stadium capacity to accommodate 50,000 fans. These applications are supported by a legal agreement which will help bring about environmental and recreational improvements in the area, and transport measures which will deal with traffic problems. Although the Trinity Road Stand is now completed, the applications allow the North Stand to be extended further to increase capacity to 50,000 seats.
