Thumbs up for new lecture rooms

A TIMBER building set to be used as two lecture rooms and an office at Ilkeston FC, has been given the green light by councillors.

The building, which will be built at the New Manor Ground was given a unanimous thumbs-up by Erewash’s planning committee last Wednesday.

An officers’ report said: “The proposed development would provide enhanced facilities at the football club and would assist the club in moving forward and improving, which would be beneficial not only to the club itself, but also to the town and borough as a whole.”
