GCCCfloodsAt its meeting on 4 February, the Council Planning Committee agreed to defer a decision on the GCCC floodlights, in order to explore alternative options further.

Residents who spoke at the meeting expressed concern about the visual impact of the lights, the light spill and the inadequate planning conditions proposed, resulting in late night matches with associated noise and nuisance.

While the committee was very keen to support the Cricket Club and retain international cricket in Bristol, they also took on board the residents' concerns.

A short deferment (no time scale yet given) has been agreed so that thye option of other types of lights can be further explored.
