  • Tribunal Rules That Bath Can't Have Extra Land At The Rec

    Bath Rugby's planned new stadium at The Recreation Ground looks likely to have to be built on the club’s current site after a tribunal vetoed plans to give it extra land. The independent panel has overturned a key proposal agreed by the Charity Commission to allow the club a bigger share of The Rec so as to develop a new 16,000-capacity arena.
