The decision on whether a redevelopment of Bristol City's stadium can go ahead is expected later today.
The £40 million project will go before a planning committee this afternoon. The club wants to replace two of the grandstands - increasing capacity to 27,000.
Our Sports Correspondent Matthias Kurth looks back at the long-running battle the football club has faced off the pitch:
Bristol City's quest for a new stadium has quite possibly been the most complicated planning wrangle in the city's modern history.
And it's revolved around this plot of land on the outskirts of the city:
- NOVEMBER 2007
It was late 2007 when the club first mooted the idea for a new stadium about a mile from City's existing home at Ashton Gate.
- NOVEMBER 2009
Two years later the club won planning permission to build the new £96m stadium on the site of a former tip at Long Ashton.
A move which would be part-funded by the sale of the old stadium to Sainsbury's.
- OCTOBER 2009
But the the whole scheme had already been undermined because residents had applied for Town Green status on the entire 42-acre site to stop any new development.
- SEPTEMBER 2010
This led to a public inquiry in which an independent inspector recommended that the whole site should indeed be registered as a Town Green.
- JUNE 2011
But the following summer the council decided that only part of the site - and not the area where the stadium would be built - should be given Town Green status, paving the way for the stadium to built on the former landfill site.
- AUGUST 2011 - APRIL 2012
This decision, inevitably, led to a legal challenge from a new group of campaigners and a couple of hearings in the High Court followed.
- MAY 2012 - PRESENT
It forced the council to stand down and commission a fresh public inquiry into just how the contentious land should be classified and registered, which means there's still no end to the argument or a compromise in sight.
- FEBRUARY 2013
So earlier this year the club announced an alternative plan - to redevelop Ashton Gate - and to share it with Bristol Rugby club.
A £40m overhaul, with two of the existing stands rebuilt, increasing capacity to 27,000, and work set to start next year.
A fall back plan we were told at the time - not the preferred option - but now the front runner in the stadium stand-off.
