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.

I think you're being far too cynical. Why would DC plough all that money in, to just walk away from the venture once it starts actually being profitable? I'd say it was the opposite. The more successful the redevelopment is, the longer he'll stay around and pick up the profits. Whether the football club sees any profits is another thing, but I genuinely believe he wants to see NTFC go up the leagues. The higher we play, the more revenue, the more profit for big Dave.

I don't think anything will change for a long long time.
The plans are passed so now we will wait for a development to be passed and agreed.
We will need to get the right amount of outside investment to make it feasible.
We will then need to get it built.
I doubt it will happen in my lifetime.
It's a step in the right direction no doubt but remains just that.
A step.

What exactly does that now allow DC to go ahead with?
What benefits to the club can we now expect, monetary or other, and when can we expect to see those benefits?
Does this enable DC to spend money on the club that is expected to be generated by this or do we continue to be as prudent as now?  (My preference but it will not please Shouey)

My understanding is that it allows him to go ahead with nothing yet! Until the land is prepared and made ready, then sold off in packets to the retailers, hoteliers or whoever, who then apply for planning permission for each individual building, then there's no idea how much money is coming in. And then we dont know what split we get of that money anyway. We're still years away from even seeing a watered down upgrade of Sixfields.
Its going to be far easier for the Saints, selling off to one party (Asda) and then building with the proceeds, which are still two years away even for them.

In reply to NECobblers post......you seem to be working on the assumption that any increase in revenue would suddenly make the club profitable. Fact is there are numerous clubs up and down the country with such facilities who still don't turn a profit. In fact do any clubs make money....apart from a big one or two? To actually recoup the £7m will take years, decades maybe, if at all.

Will the various parties sell off the land for short term gain or rent it for a steady income stream?

A massive, vertical shopping mall, with hotels, pubs, clubs, etc etc. From the top, to the top of the Lighthouse and onwards to the top of the new station roof there could be a cable car. Develop the wet area to the south, make a beach and watch the RL while the wife and kids get some sun.

Bloody hell, it's exciting, isn't it?

Cheltenham posted a profit last season. It can be done!

Well after years of objections Legal and general have now made their application to develop land owned by them at Sixfields.

Perhaps they will object to themselves!!!

Those Liberal councillors certainly had the wool pulled over their eyes

legal and General the worst thing to happen to the town since the asset stripping of the shoe industy. Spend years objecting to and putting spanners in the works of our redevlopment stating it will harm their town centre plans...then abandon the grosvenor plans and build more stuff at Sixfields.

It's a fu*king joke

So L & G have put in there planning application good luck to them but has there been any more news on what’s happening with the clubs application?
Sorry if it’s been reported elsewhere but I’ve not seen anything since the council made their decision a few weeks ago and was wondering if any timescale had been mentioned. I did hear DC mention about the Athletics track being moved on the wireless (word of the day) before the Cardiff game. Does that mean they may develop the East stand rather than the last plans I saw which were for a massive West stand only development.

Oh and wasn’t it Charles Core who’s to blame for getting rid of Freeman Hardy and Willis?
