As stakeholders of the club fans are directly impacted.

I'm more than comfortable if the decision is made with the totality for information and opinions assessed. I'm not really interested in having the bestest and classiest planning application, written on the finest gilted vellum by the world's leading calligraphers. Nor do I think that the only voices that can be heard are the squeaky-wheel nimbys

The Southstand as it is now surely the club cant maintain it in perpetuity .

He must be confident the development will go ahead launching season tickets without southstand as an option.

GH simply wants as many season tickets sold as early as possible and irrespective of where they are sold in the ground
His perception being that all those fans that currently stand in the SS will panic and renew their tickets for elsewhere in the ground due to the stadiums capacity being reduced to 13,000
IMO it's still 50/50 whether it will ever get off the ground this year and i certainly wouldn't be surprised if it was shelved yet again

If I was a season ticket holder I would hold fire and make GH and the club work a bit harder on their part to make the tickets more attractive for fans seeking entertaining each week

Maybe he might be then forced into throwing in a couple of star signings for 2017:wink:

Access work has already started in the south west corner, reducing the Western Terrace capacity for the rest of this year.

Caddick & Hetherington will already have discussed this at length with the planners, Councillors (who decide the permission) & MPs. They will know exactly the likelihood of permission, either by the LPA or on appeal. The decision should be made on policy rather than popularity. There is a housing shortage, despite there being over 1 million empty properties, & there is significant pressure on Councils to build new housing, though I doubt there will be one family buying the type of houses that will be built who is desperately in need of a 5 bed detached property.

Yes but the new house creates a chain that might free up the kind of housing that is needed. Perhaps before having a large family you need to consider how you intend to house them?

You mean like how trickle-down economics works?

I'm sure the homeless will be delighted to note that expensive homes built on green belt land for aspirational and wealthy metropolitan elites will eventually free up much needed housing lower down the chain for those in desperate need of a roof over their heads :)

Neoliberalism by plenty, eh?

A big difference between the dynamics of trickle down - which is a myth it simply isn't happening and the dynamic of the housing market where the chain model does work.

Perhaps if the million empty houses were filled then those desperate for a roof would not be so desperate. I have four on my street alone.

Did they move out just after you moved in?
