Peterborough United have finally signed documentation for the redevelopment of the London Road stadium.
After a very long drawn out affair, things are finally starting to move on the redevelopment of the ground with work to start next month on the Moy`s End stand.
Bob Symns, Peterborough United Chief Executive, said: "As everyone is aware we have been talking to the council on a regular basis and are delighted to confirm that all documentation has been signed and that it is all systems go on the redevelopment of the Moy`s End section of the stadium. Work will commence imminently and I am sure everybody connected with Peterborough United is delighted with this news."
Head of Strategic Projects for Peterborough City Council, Richard Hodgson, said: "As planned we expect to fully start work on the new Moy's End stand and skills centre next month. In addition, we are currently in the final stages of preparing a planning application for the retrofit of the London Road stand.
"Since Council agreed in July to allocate the additional £1 million for the retrofitting of London Road we have been progressing a series of decisions which will enable works to commence on site for the new Moy`s End and skills centre. For example, this has included amendments to the existing leases with the football club which will allow us access to the site to begin demolition and construction, and the letting of the contract for construction.
"The legal documents have been signed by the football club and the council. We are now able to appoint Kier Eastern to carry out the Moy`s redevelopment.
"One of the first things Kier will do to enable demolition will be to secure the site, disconnect systems such as those serving the turnstiles and public address and install a temporary irrigation system and grounds store. They will also be ordering materials in preparation for the construction works to commence.
"We are obviously delighted that the project is moving forward and that the redevelopment of the ground will be well underway by the end of the year."
