You say that but they could sell the land now with conditions and have it built on which'd take a year or two by which time we might be out of recession and property prices might have risen again & when the developer sells it we make a % on the final purchase price

You could be right. Let's just hope we actually get there this time, because doubtless the Saints will have the builders in and finished before any real headway starts to be made on the Sixfields complex. Fair does to them, but you can't fault their ability to get the right strings pulled.

The Saints are aiming to apply for planning permission in August 2013 and build in summer 2014 I think from the leaflet I read the other day

AsI said before, until the first trench is dug I won't be popping any corks.

Good news at last but clearly it will be years yet before we see any work starting at Sixfields, oh well at least we're on our way at long last. Well done to the likes of Grove who have campaigned for this day and everybody who took the trouble to lobby councillors, write to the Chron or anything else.

Can't wait to tuck into my prawns sandwiches and quaff champagne watching Fleetwood.
I'm the same, will believe it when the work is finished. Still waiting for the bloody beach they promised us! Cotton next the Sea.

Interesting comment from Tony Clarke attached to that piece on the Chron site......

"Good news until you get to the comment about a "small" element of retail, as that won't pay enough to move the athletics track let alone revamp the stadium."

Yep, can see it now. The Saints fans 'happy clapping' in their nice new stand. Us getting **** over and short changed. Hope I'm wrong, I really do, but as others have said, I will believe it once the builders start work on the stadium. That's assuming there is enough money left in the pot to expand the ground.  Undecided

I may be taking an extremely cynical view here but I do fear that if this deal allows DC to recoup a fair share of his much vaunted 7m then he could then be bidding us all farewell.

I don't know exactly where that would leave us but I doubt it'd be a good thing.

Does Tony Clarke have any sort of expertise in these matters? That's not a loaded question by the way, I just want to know if his opinion's worth listening to (it's not on most things) or if he's just spouting rubbish

No idea, just thought it was an interesting comment for him to make seeing as he was originally saying how much the club would benefit.....
In the beginning it was all meant to be about retail wasn't it? That's where the big money would come from, so the words of the council leader when he says about 'a small amount of retail' do not really start the pound signs flashing!!
It all depends on what type of development ends up there...two shops, a vets, a pub, a hotel and a skate park (for example!) wouldn't bring in that much would it?

Where's that picture of the fancy football stadium that was wheeled out several years ago? Maybe time to give an updated artists impression of what will be a similar looking sixfields albeit one with a bigger kitchen several hospitality boxes and a few extra seats.
