Charlotte Leslie has condemned what she calls 'personal attacks' made in a statement from TRASHorfield:
Charlotte Leslie MP (Con, Bristol North West) has welcomed TRASHorfield's decision not to appeal against plans to put a supermarket on Bristol Rovers' Memorial Stadium site:
TRASHorfield have strongly criticised two Bristol MPs involved linked to the controversy surrounding the Memorial Stadium development:
TRASHorfield say they will not appeal the Memorial Stadium supermarket decision, because there is not enough time to raise the necessary funds.
It's been announced the group opposing a supermarket on the site of Bristol Rovers' current home will NOT be appealing the judicial review decision.
TRASHorfield were considering taking their case to the Court of Appeal. It means Sainsbury's can now build on the Memorial Stadium, paving the way for Rovers to move to a new stadium at the University of the West of England.
A full statement from Bristol Rovers can be seen on the football club's official website.
Campaign group TRASHorfield have been refused permission to appeal a decision clearing the way for Sainsburys to build on the Bristol Rover's Memorial Stadium ground.
The campaign group TRASH has announced it's to seek leave to appeal the judicial review decision which cleared the way for Sainsburys to build at Bristol Rovers' Memorial Stadium.
The group, Traders and Residents Against Sainsburys Horfield, last week lost their judicial review against Bristol City Council, claiming the authority did not follow correct planning procedure in granting a supermarket the right to build on the football club's current home.
The High Court judge must now consider the bid to appeal that judgement in the next seven days.
ITV News can reveal Green Party councillor Daniella Radice has quit her post on the campaign group saying she felt the opposition to the stadium had gone as far as it could.
