The long anticipated ground on Lee-on-Solent waste ground has taken another step forward, The News reports today that the path is clear to start work.
Cllr Dave Smith said: ‘Everything has been sorted out between us and Persimmon and as far as we are concerned it’s full steam ahead.

‘The club has worked really hard with us and everything is going very smoothly.

‘I’m hoping work can start early in the new year, but it’s up to the club when it starts work at the site.’

Great news, but Pompey spokesman Gary Double was a bit vague with timescales, just reiterating that it was good news and the club can press on.
