Support for Newhaven football stand

NEWHAVEN Town Council fully supports Newhaven football Club in their bid to obtain a temporary licence for the redundant stand at their Fort Road ground.

The licence is required to bring forward the required safety improvements necessary to provide a covered eating area. This will allow the club to upgrade their ground status and progress in the leagues.

We would encourage Lewes District Council to look favourably on requests from the club at its earliest opportunity, to enable the works to proceed before the onset of the new football season.

Newhaven Football Club has a long and proud history and provides strong links within the community along with sporting and recreational opportunities for all ages and genders in the town and surrounding area.

Cllr Steve Saunders, Town Mayor of Newhaven
