What adds to their credibility is the fact that the latest phase of Etihad Stadium revamp already has planning permission. It was granted in 2014 and will only be valid until early 2017. If City don’t start work by February, they will have to reapply.

Reason - Required to be imposed pursuant to Section 91 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.
