Are to saying the limit of your ambition is L1? 

But to answer what I think is your question I would say we need to build up the stadium but not just in terms of crowd capacity but also with facilities within the stadium capable of generating income 7 days a week.  Take a look at some of the modern stadiums not too far from Northampton and you will see money earning activities carry on every day.  End result hopefully is an decent budget for the manager and the club becomes a much more attractive proposition for future owners. Beyond the stadium ideally the club would own its own training ground and facilities but I don't think this is on the agenda in the foreseeable future.  If Moulton College decided not to renew the lease when it runs out next year the club would be in a dilemma.

Certainly not limiting ambition, thanks for the response. I'm sure though that Kelvin would agree with all that but you have to realise these things don't move quickly, how long have Bournemouth been a prem side now? How has their ground changed? I agree with the 7 day a week income, you only have to look at places like Caroline Chisholm School to see how facilities can be used outside their usual operating parameters. Is there a need for Northampton to have an Arena such as Coventry's Ricoh. The big hold up for our town has, and likely always will be, been the council. Poor retail decisions have lead to shops moving out of town etc, they just don't seem to have a clue how to expand the Town itself until this happens I think you would be safe to assume the Football club will mirror this. Look at Saints - other than a refurbished stand what leaps and bounds have they made in last ten years?

I certainly agree with you about the fact that Northampton has suffered for a very long time from a very poor Council and that extends to all 3 main political parties when they have had control at the Guildhall.  There is something rotten in the borough in the political classes.  Whilst you may be right that the football club mirrors the wider situation in Northampton it needn't be like this.  In my lifetime the population has grown from 100,000 to the present day 230,000 and it will continue to grow.  Add to those numbers a large catchment area and the potential has to be there to grow the club sensibly but ambitiously.

This thread will never die.

I see that the area off the Sainsbury's roundabout has been parcelled off ( the bit where the garage/tile shop was ). This adjoins the retail park so would expect an extension of that probably. I may remember incorrectly but thought old DC plans were objected to by that landowner.

South Beds - what do we need? When do we need it?

Latest video update from Kelvin sounds promising.
Agreement with the council sounds close and may have been signed already if it was for Christmas.

Can't see Lidl building a new supermarket about 100m from where they built a new one around 5 years ago

I see the Council are finally going to decide on the last 300 yards of the Edgar Mobbs Way next Tuesday! This will help an extra exit from Sixfields onto the Towcester Road at B & Q.

If they can finally decide on this topic, after all these years, what hope for the ground redevelopment decision?
