Grays Ath a step close to finding a new home

IT appears that Grays Athletic are a step nearer to getting their own ground after last night’s planning meeting.

Thurrock Council approved a development on green belt land which included Grays Athletic FC moving into the disused Ship Lane Stadium in Aveley.

The move depends on a car dealer building an inspection centre with a 1,200 space car park at the site.

The development was approved against the advice of planning officers and is therefore subject to further approval.

It means there will be a mandatory referral to the secretary of state for the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

A motion must also be passed by the council explaining its decision and officers will produce a further report on the implications of the approval to be considered at forthcoming meeting.
