DUMBARTON Football Club have received planning permission to erect a mural at one end of the stand at the C&G Systems Stadium.

The new artwork will be installed on the gable at the east end of the stand, visible from Castle Road.

Permission was granted by West Dunbartonshire Council planning officials this week.

The mural will feature an image of the club badge, a club player, and the logo of the club sponsor, all on a black background.

The sign will not be illuminated.

Case officer Bernard Darroch said in a report on the club’s application: “The proposed sign has been designed to promote both Dumbarton Football Club and its current sponsor.

“Advertising of this nature is not uncommon at sports grounds.

“It is of a sufficient distance from Castle Road so as not to be a distraction to drivers or other road users.”
