Kawasaki City Council has given a green light to the redevelopment of Todoroki Stadium.
The latest round of petitions was submitted on Monday, totalling over 180,000 signatures (well in excess of the 150,000 target). And on Thursday the council's Environmental Committee gave its unanimous approval to the project.
As yet there appear to be no concrete plans as to what form the redevelopment will take. However, the council's decision means such discussions can now begin.
