BRIGHTLINGSEA Regent have scored with their plans to increase the seating area provided for spectators.

The North Road club, who play in the Bostik League premier division, previously received the go-ahead for a covered area for 100 fans.

Now Tendring District Council has approved an extension to a covered stand for a further 50 seats to be installed at the Taydal Stadium.

The extension will match the existing design of the structure and will be largely hidden from view by a metal enclosure surrounding the pitch.

It was not felt the additional facility would have an adverse impact on neighbouring residents.

Brightlingsea Town Council supported the application and there were no other representations received by TDC.
