My main wish with any redevelopment is that they try to fill in the corners, i much prefer stadiums with the corners connected, similar to Loftus Road.  I think the atmosphere is enhanced with a wraparound  stadium.

Agree about the "New Stadium" though, redevelopment of existing has to be the way forward.
I prefer wrapped corners but not even for asthetics but to stop the wind tunnel effect.

I hadn't heard that but it does make sense.

I thought so, from the Council website albeit sadly no plans are there!

Reg would have been all over this, he loved telling people off that said it couldn't be done or that permission was refused.  I believe the issue that prevented construction was Grant money not being available.  The Don Rogers stand was heavily financed by Grant money rather than our own.

Hopefully we'll get some more Grant money this month when we sell Anthony.

Thatís what I was told by the then chairman but canít recall his name. Apparently planning permission was obtained and granted along with The DRS. The club was under the impression they could take advantage of the grant scheme been offered by The FL/FA at the time towards building costs. SB was shelved when only one grant was forthcoming and that was used for The DRS.

It was probably via Reg that my recollection of it came from. I assume the loss of light/height issue with the burghers of Shrivy Road was solved in the latter application, as the loss of c.1000 seats suggests it was made smaller.

Out of interest how many does the TE seat as that would broadly give an idea of the scale of what was approved?

That was always my understanding going back to the 90s with quoting the flag pole height restriction, they tried to build a bigger stand with a roof and residents kicked off and planning was eventually agreed on a reduced height.

On the general subject of development Boy About Town said there are photos of the DRS second concourse. Don't suppose anyone can find them or has them to hand? Can't recall ever seeing anything.

...of course you could end up in a situation where some stubborn house owner wouldnít sell until hell froze over, like the old ladies at Anfield a number of decades ago.

In which case just burn them out as happened with an outlier in the way of Totteringhams new stadium development back in 2014.
