CHESTER this week took a small yet significant step towards realising their dream of redeveloping the Deva Stadium.
The first meeting between club officials and Chester City Council, who own the stadium, took place on Tuesday.
It gave the club the chance to show the council their multi-million pound redevelopment proposals, which include the development of a gymnasium, retail outlets, corporate boxes and office accommodation.
Blues owner Stephen Vaughan said: “We met Louise Parr and Chris Dingsdale from the council and they were extremely attentive and helpful.
“They will now take the proposals to the next stage and officially set the ball rolling to request the necessary permissions for the development.
“There are a couple of points we need to clarify and we also need to identify the boundary between Chester and Flintshire as the ground straddles the England/Wales border.”
Vaughan’s chosen developers for the project are Property First Asset Management, who have drawn up some impressive computer generated images showing what a revamped Deva Stadium could look like.
