Saracens Mill Hill plan approved by Barnet Council

"Reacting to the unanimous decision by Barnet Council Planning and Environment Committee [2 February] to approve plans to revive Barnet Copthall Stadium, Saracens chairman Nigel Wray said:
"After 18 months of engaging extensively with local residents, we are delighted that Barnet Councillors have approved our proposals to revive Barnet Copthall Stadium and create a vibrant sports hub for the local community.

The new stadium will provide both a real home for Saracens and a hugely improved venue for athletics in the south east. It will secure the future of the highly successful Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers and offer great facilities free of charge to local schools.

Our plans include the installation of an artificial turf pitch, which may well be the future of rugby. It could enable a faster, safer and more entertaining game and will certainly enable the local community to use the pitch for 349 days per year.

Copthall will, we promise, be a genuine community stadium. We will continue to work closely with the local community, and make Copthall an asset that we can all be proud of."
