Harrogate Town has had plans for a new clubhouse at its Wetherby Road stadium approved.

The club tabled a planning application to build the two-storey facility in the north-west corner of the ground back in March this year.

It would be used to serve fans refreshments on match days and include an upper floor area for supporters to gather.

Harrogate Borough Council has now given the go-ahead for the plan.

The facility would be needed for the club to meet its English Football League membership criteria, which requires all member clubs to provide refreshment facilities for home and away fans in separate areas of the ground.

A planning report by Harrogate Borough Council said:

“This application seeks to construct a two storey building as a spectator facility.

“This is to ensure the club has sufficient facilities for home fans, further contributing to meeting its EFL membership requirements.”

The club has already seen a number of developments approved by the council since promotion, including a new ticket office and turnstiles at the EnviroVent Stadium which were backed by the council in April 2021.
