Barnet Council's planning and environment committee has approved plans put forward by Saracens rugby union team for the redevelopment of Copthall Stadium, north London.

The Aviva Premiership team will relocate to the venue as part of the proposals, which have already received the backing of the national governing bodies for athletics and rugby union.

Existing facilities at Copthall Stadium will be revamped as part of the GBP18m scheme, which also includes new permanent facilities and the installation of temporary seating.

Saracens will play up to 16 matches a year on a synthetic pitch at the venue, while the local community and athletics club will have use of the facilities at other times.

The current main building to the west of the venue will be redeveloped and a new permanent stand will be constructed to the east for use by athletics and rugby union spectators.

Offering fully covered seating, the total capacity of the east and west structures will be 3,000, while the refurbished west stand would also house facilities for clubs and officials.

"The new stadium will provide both a real home for Saracens and a hugely improved venue for athletics in the south east," said Saracens chair

"It will secure the future of the highly successful Shaftesbury Barnet Harriers and offer great facilities free of charge to local schools."
