Over the last year Bath Rugby has been engaging with the local residents as well as other groups over its desire to build a new stadium on the Rec. The process is ongoing. For an update of the latest developments use the following link: http://stadiumforbath.com/news/
PERA’s position has been clear for several years. While not opposed to improvements/redevelopment of the current stadium, PERA is opposed to any changes that will cause further noise, nuisance or pollution and degrade the utility of the area as being a great place to live. As PERA members we are keen on your views. The PERA committee members responsible for liaison with the Rugby club are: Nigel Websper; Roy Hatch and Sue Shipman. You will find their email details on the committee membership page.
UPDATE: We have recently become aware of a proposal to build a temporary stadium on the rest of the Rec to accommodate Bath Rugby whilst the new stadium is being built. We are very interested in PERA members feedback on this idea. Please send comments to the relevant committee members.
Stadium for Bath has announced dates in July when the public can view their “emerging concepts for the new stadium and riverside”. See http://stadiumforbath.com/stadium-for-bath-to-host-public-consultation-on-emerging-scheme/
We would encourage PERA members to attend and to send us feedback on your thoughts.
