"About a month ago, Stranraer FC asked our Building Standards Service to provide an estimate of capacity for their whole ground at Stair Park.
"Building Standards had not previously provided an estimate for the whole ground and this is the first time one had been requested.
"The Building Standards legal requirement is for a safety certificate for the South Stand only.
"However, our Building Standards team was happy to provide an estimate on request, though only the capacity for South Stand is enforceable by the service.
"Our team used the guidance provided by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport in their Green Book on sports grounds. Using this guidance, an estimate of just under 3,000 has been given.
"Stranraer FC has been given advice on a number of measures they can consider to increase the capacity of their ground."
