Cambridge City FC club vice-chairman Terry Dunn has been given the specific role of stadium project director as the club expect to begin again on stadium development at its Sawston site. The club has warned that construction costs have risen since the first planning application and that cost-engineering will be required. Dunn told Cambridgeshire Live:
The costs have risen quite considerably going back to 2013 when the plans went in. It’s a sizeable increase, and while I can’t give any figures, it’s a multi-million pound development.
We’re hoping it will mean nothing more than the main and second pitches being tweaked a bit, along with some of the surrounding buildings, while maintaining the first class facilities for the main building as per the original plans.
The pitches won’t be reduced in quality, but it pays to look around and consult with some specialists.
We’re still hoping it will be just a one-season groundshare back at Histon, but as time goes on it may have to run into a second season. It’s delayed because the planning application went to appeal.
