Bowthorpe football centre plans new stand

A new stand for spectators could be built at the Football Development Centre in Bowthorpe, if plans get the go-ahead.

The Norfolk Football Association has lodged an application with Norwich City Council for a 162-capacity covered stand at the Bowthorpe Park centre.

Last year permission was secured from the city council to extend the existing pavilion, provide extra car parking, install a new perimeter fence and add a grass football pitch.

The Football Development Centre kicked off the revamp last summer that also included new classrooms and a meeting room.
