PLANS to make Chesterfield FC’s Proact Stadium more accessible to members of the local community have taken a major step forward after five organisations agreed to become tenants.

Derbyshire County Council, Seren Holdings and Club Taxis have all exchanged contracts with the club’s Community Trust.

And Leonard Cheshire Disability and MacIntyre are poised to follow suit to create the £1.5m Community Hub.

Chesterfield FC Community Trust director John Croot said: “We’re delighted to announce that the five organisations have agreed to come on board.

“It’s great to see the plans taking shape.

“They include creation of a play centre, café and classrooms.

“We said we would make this a community stadium and we’re delivering on our promise.”
