Anything less than a complete demolition and rebuild of Stratton Bank is simply polishing a turd IMO.
The stated plan is to roof the Bank and build a new Town End, so we’ll have to live with it. It’ll be no different to Pompey’s away end.

I hope the TE stays as a single bank.

Just makes more sense to me to leave The Town End as it is and use it for away fans and build a decent Stratton Band Stand that would link up with DRS and Arkells.

Then you’ve got the perennial problem of the residents of Shrivenham Road complaining. Plus the club will own the car park to build the new TE into but I don’t think it owns any land behind the Bank.

How good is it that as things stand our main concern is how the development will look.

That is without doubt a positive summary.
Would be just great for our long suffering Supporters to have some sustainable success both on and particularly off the field.

I imagine that wouldn't be feasible from a policing perspective, as you'd have the away fans spilling out into the car park at the same time as the people filtering out of the DRS and Arkells.

Why give the away fans the Town End when it's going to be a new 5k stand? The 2,100 seat bank with roof will suit away fans, get em out the north stand too.

Is the Town End going to be that big?

I concur. Surely also having all the away supporters in one stand also makes it easier to police as well I would have thought. Having home fans in 3 stands, especially for bigger matches will be superb.

Just a thought on the costs mentioned. Obviously when these plans were drawn up the cost of 'everything' was significantly lower. I assume that these costs - £1m Stratton Bank, £20m Town End and £1.5m for DRS corporate boxes are going to have to be adjusted.

How do they get away fans from the Arkells/Bank away from the stadium these days? From the point of view of getting them back to the station there is possible more scope to avoid trouble if they are already in the stand nearest County Road?

Then you’ve got the perennial problem of the residents of Shrivenham Road complaining. Plus the club will own the car park to build the new TE into but I don’t think it owns any land behind the Bank.

I don't have time to search today, but wasn't a stand approved for the Bank end at the same time as the DRS, but never built, if so they could revisit that design which the Council obviously thought mitigated any amenity issues to the residents of Shrivenham Road?

Considering construction cost inflation was being measured at c.27% in the summer, yes everything will have gone through the roof (no pun intended!)
