National League side Forest Green Rovers would get a new stadium as part of a £100m Eco Park at Junction 13 on the M5. Ecotricity, the Stroud-based green energy company, has unveiled plans to develop a 100 acre sports and green technology centre which would require an investment of £100m and could create up to 4,000 new jobs.
Located on either side of the A419, half of Eco Park will be dedicated to creating state-of-the-arts sporting facilities, including an all-seater stadium for Forest Green Rovers, training fields, 4G pitches, multi-disciplinary sporting facilities, as well as a sports science hub.
The other half of Eco Park will comprise a green technology business park with sustainably built commercial offices and light industrial units potentially capable of servicing up to 4,000 jobs.
Ecotricity is seeking feedback on the overall concept and will hold public consultations over the coming weeks at its offices in Stroud and at The New Lawn stadium near Nailsworth.
