120 rooms I think he said. I'm going to make a wild guess and say it wouldn't be on the exact footprint of the club shop.

I know! Seems like putting a roof on the bank should be first so the TE can relocate there.

I am pretty sure that buying the ground will also buy the car park so I am sure that will be built upon and the CG Hotel I understand is part of the deal too.

Replacement car parking would be needed I think, maybe an underground/overground multi level to at least cover the same amount of spaces that would be lost.

I think the idea is to put the away fans on the bank. Capacity of drs would be reduced too.

Pretty sure Arkells own the pub.

Quote
Arkell's bought the land from C Williams the year before and had a ready-made licence thanks to the demise of a pub in Highworth. The Rampant Cat was closed by a relieved James Arkell - son of John Arkell - who lived nearby at Redlands and was annoyed by the rowdy behaviour of some of the regulars. So the County Ground got the licence and one of the town's landmarks was born

Oh right I heard that the land the pub is built on is part of the covenant from the Goddards.

I've always thought a roof on the bank to be a total waste of money.

But it makes a bit of sense if the TE is being redeveloped. True the other stands could accommodate I suppose

It would make sense if we were a division higher because we would need the extra capacity while we developed the TE, if we are at that point still in this division then it makes little sense as we hardly ever fill the other 2 stands already.

For the Trust guys who post on here - Has the collaboration with the club put an end to the 10m Town End renovation that was proposed as part of your initial plans?

Also, if this has been mentioned before I apologise, is the Eady legacy being considered by the trustees of the estate to help in the purchase? If so as a stand alone third party investment or a bequest to one of the two parties?

Hi sorry only just seen this question for the Trust.
Assuming everything goes through with the 50/50 purchase I think the town end plans we at the trust suggested would be replaced with the new plans.
Hope that helps
