The revised plan for Bristol City Football Club’s new stadium in the UK has won council approval.

The £60m ($94.1m) scheme is being designed by UK practice Capita Symonds and is expected to be complete in 2012.

The 30,000-seat stadium can be expanded to 42,000 if England hosts the World Cup in 2018, according to worldinteriordesignnetwork.com.

Bristol was named in England’s World Cup bid as one of 12 potential host cities.

As the project is sited on green belt land, the development application is expected to be called in for an inquiry by the UK Secretary of State.

The club resubmitted plans three months ago as concerns were raised over the initial plan, which involved building a housing estate next to the stadium.

North Somerset Council also refused permission for an access road next to Long Ashton’s park and ride; the council is yet to set a date for discussion.
