Following discussion and advice from B&NES Council, the club has withdrawn the application seeking to retain the East Stand in situ this summer.
The club's concerns regarding the wider implications of the dismantling and re-erecting of the East Stand on the community events planned by Bath Recreation Ltd, as well as to local residents and the impact of the loss of parking provision at the Covid Vaccination Centre at the Pavilion, still remain.
The East Stand has remained in place as the city has been dealing with the effects of the global pandemic. Covid-19 has not gone away, and following the government's roadmap out of lockdown, the city is slowly emerging and taking steps to economic recovery. The club remains committed to playing its vital part in this.
