CHAIRMAN of Forest Green Rovers Dale Vince has released an architect's view of Ecotricity’s revised plans for its Eco Park.

The green energy giant first revealed plans for the £100m Eco park, which will be situated in Eastington just of J13 of the M5, back in 2015.

Original designs included state-of-the-arts sporting facilities, including a 5,000-capacity all-seater stadium for Forest Green Rovers (FGR), indoor and outdoor training fields, athletics and rugby fields and a sports science hub.

While the other half of Eco Park would include a green technology business park, with sustainably built commercial offices and light industrial units, which Ecotricity said could create up to 4,000 new jobs.

Since the idea first came to fruition there have been subtle changes to the original Eco Park and Mr Vince is now set to make more changes.

On his Facebook page Mr Vince said: “We’re just a few days away now from submitting revised plans for Eco Park, with all development on the north side and no green tech business park to try and break the log jam.”

The image of the proposed plans was also posted on Facebook and once again public opinion was divided.

Billy Marler commented: “Looks fantastic, Dale. Want you to know that your vision for FGR and your hard work hasn't gone unnoticed. You're doing some great stuff and it's appreciated by people around the world.

Martin Wyman believed the Eco Park will be a huge positive for the people of Gloucestershire.

He said: “It’s fantastic Dale that someone in our area wants to build this for our community, will be a great asset for generations to come.”

However, not everyone was happy with the proposed plans.

Richard Taylor commented: “So what is so environmental about building over yet more green space? There's nothing wrong with FGR's ground where it is. This all just smacks of a bloke whose wallet and ego are out of control.”
