City Council Prohibition Notice ‘invalid’

The Prohibition Notice served on Sheffield Wednesday by the City Council in July last year, preventing access and exiting for home supporters at the Leppings Lane end of our ground, has been ruled to be invalid.

A statement from the club reads:

‘At the Sheffield Magistrates Court on 8 January, District Judge Redhouse allowed Sheffield Wednesday’s appeal against the Prohibition Notice served by Sheffield City Council on 25 July 2019.

‘The judge found that the notice was invalid.

‘The club are pleased to learn that the council has indicated it does not intend to issue a further notice immediately following this judgment but instead will work constructively with SWFC in the coming days, regarding ingress and egress arrangements for supporters at the Leppings Lane end of the stadium ahead of our next home fixture against Blackburn Rovers on 18 January.

‘The club would like to thank all our supporters and local residents who have been impacted by the issuing of the notice.’
