Yeovil Town planning decision delayed by two months

The decision on whether Yeovil Town will be allowed to develop land around their Huish Park Stadium has been delayed by two months.

The club want to build a shopping complex on their training pitches to help pay for improved facilities at the ground. Today the local council deferred the decision to allow the club time to respond to fears raised by some local residents.

There are worries about the reduction of open spaces and the impact the plans would have on the town centre.
