Was basically a replica of the DRS if I remember rightly, can't remember if it had a corner infill or not.

You do remember correctly, and there were no infills in the plan.

Didn't think it did as the floodlight pylon was still there and obviously that wouldn't be possible with an infill. Swear I saw a drawing on the internet sometime in the last 5 or 6 years as well.

I'm not a fan of smaller bowl type grounds, the only ones that work for me are stadiums like Wembley or Millennium. Give me a 50% size Villa Park, any day.

Yeah you did, I saw it too. A while back as you say but I cannot put my finger on what it looked like 100%.

Well if it had consent once it will probably get consent again.
Looking at it, with the Arkells, DRS and this SB development would give a capacity of c. 13,430 + whatever can be shoe horned onto the TE.

Would do for now.

Realistically if you did some kind of horse shoe layout connecting the DRS, TE and Arkells leaving the Stratton bank as a stand alone stand youd easily get a capacity in excess of 20k. Even without any infills doubling the TE size alone would get us a 16k or 17k capacity which is double our average attendances for the last quarter of a century so more than sufficient.

If it means we end up at some out of town soulless bowl (like Colchester), then definitely not

Hey? Im not saying we wouldnt have a stand there, Im saying stand-alone much like the Atyeo stand is at City to deal with the possible constraints that may exist with the added benefit of giving natural segregation between home and away fans. The other 3 have no such constraints so no reason not to have them at a similar height and link them.

At some point unfortunately the floodlight pylons will need replacing and Im hoping we go for a modern equivalent with a nod to the history rather than just lights mounted on top of stand roofing.

Fair point and I would be happy if a redeveloped County ground looked like Anton zGate

If we were to copycat a ground, i've always been envious of how good Deepdale looks.

Theyd have a point though if that happened.
