The latest on the club's plans to expand the King Power Stadium as Leicester City Council explain why two target decision dates over the planning application have not been met
It has now been 33 weeks since City submitted their application, but they have agreed to the City Council pushing back the date on a decision. Asked for explanation over the two missed targets, a City Council spokesperson said: “It is normal for a large and complex scheme of this nature to take longer to determine. The club has agreed to the extensions of time.”
City do have permission to begin work on the site, having had green lights given for preliminary works at the end of last year and the beginning of 2022. Among those permitted works is the demolition of the National Grid building which stands on the plot where City will construct their new East Stand. However, work has not yet begun on the site.
