Planners at Bristol City Council have recommended that plans to re-develop Bristol City's Ashton Gate stadium be approved. The final decision will be made by the council's planning committee next Wednesday (27 November).

If Bristol City get the go-ahead to re-build Ashton Gate then they are likely to abandon plans to construct a new stadium nearby at Ashton Vale. The Ashton Vale development has been hit by delays and the club are currently awaiting the outcome of a town and village green application for the site.

Full report: Bristol City's plans for new-look Ashton Gate

The future of Bristol City's ground has been hotly debated for years. Now, in the latest development, the club has unveiled plans for a revamped stadium at Ashton Gate to be shared with Bristol Rugby.

If it goes ahead work would start next year - the famous Wedlock stand would be rebuilt and the pitch moved. The proposals are an alternative to controversial plans for a brand new stadium nearby. Jonty Messer reports:

The club still wants to build a new stadium at Ashton Vale but the proposals are a back up in case that falls through.

SPORT: Departing Bristol City players 'wished well'

With Louis [Carey], his experience and know-how is seen as important for what we believe will be a young squad.

With Cole [Skuse], he’s been an exemplary servant for this football club and we fully understand his reasons for moving on at this time in his career.

For Jon [Stead] the lure of playing back up north has been too strong and we wish him luck for whatever his future career holds.”
