Stadium grant approved
The club have announced that a grant of £71,000 has been approved by the Football Stadia Improvement Fund to help with segregation work to be carried out at The Walks Stadium.
With planning permission from the council soon after the announcement.
A club statement said: "This work will be carried out at the Tennyson Road end of the ground as well as part of the covered terraced stand.
The work includes fencing, turnstiles, toilets and refreshment areas (all of which has been stated in previous communications).
"The process of obtaining grant assistance was started by chairman Stephen Cleeve once the club obtained promotion to National League level in May.
The club can also confirm that a donation from the Blue & Gold trust has been paid directly to the turnstile manufacturers by themselves to assist in their purchase.
"We also wish to state that the grant will assist with some, but not all, of the cost involved in this development with the club meeting the balance of money required."

Lynn ban supporter
Following comments that appeared on social media on the evening of the match against Hitchin Town the club have taken action against the individual who admitted making the comment.
In a statement the club said:
"The person responsible has been banned from all matches at The Walks for an indefinite period, which will be lifted at the club's discretion. King's Lynn Town Football Club has sought and been given advice by the Football Association's official partner Kick It Out, who educate supporters on equality in football. The club has decided that the person must attend a course run by Kick it Out. The person, who will foot the full cost of the course, will also meet up with Kieran Shipp to apologise for last week's actions and has apologised to the club for his actions.
Further to the above, the club are intending to talk to a small group of individuals about previous social media activity and general behaviour, both here at the Walks and also at away games, in the very near future.
They will be warned about their future behaviour and informed any repeat of actions deemed not acceptable would also result in banning notices.
The club has asked that the Twitter identity 'UltrasLynn' remains deactivated, as it is now.
A separate incident that took place in the technical area at Hitchin Town, which is totally unrelated to the social media postings, is also under investigation by the club and the Southern League."

Royston Town 0 King's Lynn Town 1
Lynn clung on to third spot in the table thanks to a last gasp winner at Garden Walk.
Without Aaron Jones, recovering from a knee operation, and the injured Jordan Richards and Michael Gash, the latter rested as a precaution as he has a tight hamstring. Lynn gave Jake Kerins his debut following having signed from Bury Town on Thursday.
The match lacked goal mouth action with defences being on top through out. Lynn had the better of possession in the first half without making calling upon Joe Welch in the home goal. The Crows had the better of the first half chances the first, on 32 minutes saw Vance Bola shoot wide from Josh Castiglione's cut back and the second saw Alex Street pull off a superb point blank save to deny Castiglione just before half time.
Lynn's best chance was Ryan Jarvis' centre on 20 minutes to the waiting Frazer Blake-Tracy but Gus Scott-Morriss made a timely intervention.
Royston came more into the game in the second half Joe Newton's cross just evading Castiglione just after the hour while Lynn replied with Ryan Hawkins striking the base of the post on 76 minutes.
Sam Corcoran and James Potton then had efforts that were saved and wide respectively as the match looked to be heading for a draw.
With the match into time added on Hawkins dispossessed Adam Murray and centred for Blake-Tracy to slide home his first league goal of the season to give Lynn all three points and extend their unbeaten run to eighteen.
Royston: Welch. Scott-Morriss. Newton. Thomas. Murray. Joseph. Mentis. Corcoran. Bola (Potton 76). Castiglione (Gallin 86). Gordon. Subs: Oswick. Potton. Gallin. Crowther. Brathwaite
Lynn: Street, Kerins, Blake-Tracy, Jarvis, Fryatt, McAuley, Clunan, Robinson, Marriott, Parker, Henderson (Hawkins h/t)). Subs: Hawkins, Castellan, Bastock. Booked: Marriott. Scorer: Blake-Tracy 91
Attendance: 370
