Great news!

Bath Rugby has received four-year planning consent for their stands at the Recreation Ground, including a new enhanced temporary West Stand and renewal of permissions for North, East and South Stands.

The consent, given at a B&NES Development Management Committee meeting today, will increase capacity at the Rec from 13,500 to 14,500 and will allow the Club to focus on working towards a permanent solution at the Rec.

Tarquin McDonald, Managing Director of Bath Rugby, said: “We are delighted with today’s decision. By consolidating planning for the next four years, we wish to move the debate away from planning around the temporary stands - which need to be renewed every year or two - and focus on working with all stakeholders within the City to produce a full development proposal. Bath Rugby remains committed to providing a world-class facility in the centre of Bath; one which provides enhanced use for the community and which reinvigorates the riverside area in the heart of the City."

McDonald added: "In the meantime, the much-needed redevelopment of the West Stand will provide our supporters with the best possible game experience, with improved sight lines, more leg room and enhanced facilities. In addition, the increased capacity will allow more people to enjoy rugby at the Rec and bring in an extra £5 million to the local economy over the life of the consent."

Half time lead thrown away again by Bath Rugby

The former Wales playmaker James Hook kicked five penalties as Gloucester fought back in difficult conditions to beat Bath 15-11 and leap to fifth place in the Premiership table – if just for 24 hours.

Losing at home to their West Country rivals is hard enough to bear but this was also Bath’s sixth defeat in a row in all competitions.

A meagre losing bonus point leaves last year’s free-scoring Premiership finalists languishing in ninth position, having lost seven of their 10 league games. Their points came from an early Dom Day try and two penalties by the full-back Tom Homer.
