GLASGOW CITY COUNCIL has today put the breaks on Celtic’s plans to erect a large, rotating screen outside Celtic Park.
The screen which would have been used for promotional material, highlights and general club related news outside the ground will NOT be able to go ahead after GCC refused the proposal.
The reason it has been rejected is because GCC planners think it would be a distraction to drivers going along London Road and also because it would be a “dominant and incongruous feature, to the detriment of visual amenity”.
Celtic have been regenerating the outside of Celtic Park for years now and the visuals outside the stadium are already a great sight to behold. This would have been an added extra for the club if the proposal had been accepted.
The club is still forging ahead with a hotel, museum and ticket office on the site, however, progress on the funding and timescale of the project has not been made public.
