Final planning permission has been granted for the redevelopment of Swindon's Abbey Stadium.
Planners at the local authority gave the go-ahead this week for a £5m new stadium and neighbouring greyhound facility.
Initial planning permission was granted in 2011 to build the new facilities and housing by Swindon Borough Council.
The majority of the housing has been built but work on the stadium has been hit by delays.
This week's decision was originally scheduled for late 2018.
It was delayed because of concerns that building work would cause too much noise disruption for nearby residents.
The council's planning committee gave final approval on Tuesday 14 January for the demolition of the current stadium and the construction of a new one.
