The bottom line is that as long as market conditions are right, and there is a proposal to do a major development on Green Belt requiring a community contribution in compensation for allowing this development, this was always possible. I never really understood why the planners didn’t look at this option right at the start. I thought that it had to be linked to the current owners wanting capital money out of the existing site. Hopefully they are happy to take the interest going forward.

I’m still keeping my old cynic head on for now.
I’ll believe it when I see the old main stand come down.

Thought it was Wakefield at first with the lack of people around. Like all the other iterations it looks and sounds good but I will have to remain a reluctant sceptic until I walk through the gate.

Looking on google the registered head office is the same as that of GMI who were supposed to be building the new stadium

Good news about the stadium. Shame we couldn't get the move to a much better location, but it is what it is. Same parking issues, as well as the tedious pile up trying to get away from the ground.

RE parking plenty of parking in town we always park on castle fields and walk down ,anyone who parks near our ground should sit it out for less than than half an hour after the match finishes no problems getting away then

From the pictures in the link the railway end is definitely getting covered. Pitchside view 1 and pitchside view 2 both show the intended new main stand and the railway end (the one with corporate boxes and a roof).

Will all stands have seating?
IMO seating will spoil the atmosphere that we now get from having standing terraces on 3 and a half sides.

My understanding is that the current terracing/seating configuration will remain.

I hope that they will make it a no smoking stadium as I’ve stood in same area for hrs and only area that they allow to smoke is where I stand and guess what I don’t smoke so I hope they do change it and make it a no smoking stadium
