There could be an increase in demand for town planning jobs in Macclesfield after proposals to build a new football stadium reach their final phase.
Yesterday (July 26th), plans to relocate the Macclesfield Town Football Club stadium were discussed by the Cheshire East Council.
While proposals to move the venue within the vicinity of the South Macclesfield Development Area (SMDA) have been in the pipeline since December 2009, the latest discussion marks nearly the end of the consultation process.
Silkmen chairman Mike Rance said: "It is our aim to make the case for a sports and leisure-based development, anchored by the proposed 7,000 capacity stadium, in south Macclesfield."
He added that the venue would also include community facilities, a performance centre and could be used as a music and theatre stadium.
People in the area looking for town planning jobs are likely to be supporting the proposals as it would create a greater demand for officers.
Other changes to the area as part of the SMDA include expansion of its town centre by building a new office development, town square, department store and multiplex cinema.
