Members of Fylde Council are set to meet to decide on plans to build an £18m stadium and retail development near Wesham.

Plans for Mill Farm off Fleetwood Road include a 6,000 capacity football stadium for AFC Fylde and a retail park including an Aldi supermarket, restaurant, hotel, pub and petrol station.

Last month national planners gave their backing to the project, with the council’s development management committee recommended to rubber-stamp the plans at Wednesday’s meeting.

AFC Fylde chairman David Haythornthwaite said: “Hopefully by this time next year we could be playing there which will be great.”

The council will meet at 10am on Wednesday at Fylde Town Hall, St Annes.
