Maybe nothing but all the advertising tarpaulings had been taken off of the east stand I noticed yesterday

Now the manic January window has passed (well done NTFC), can KT issue a statement concerning the relationship with NBC and a decision?
Can KT issue a statement about what his target plans are for the Stadium, if the Council sort the legal issue?
What time scale does he envisage when a decision is made by the Council?

Has our Trust asked KT these questions?

You ask him. He will have exactly the same regard for you, as he does the Trust.

Also... The Trust are busy organising a sponsored Knitathon.  Tongue Wink

It's all still with the northampton borough council, just asked him. He also stated in the future to ask the council the questions as we have done everything we can.

With the current predicament of the council I canít see anything being resolved anytime soon.

Not quite everything, if you believe the council's view that nothing is preventing the club from finishing the stand.

You are referring to the County Council. KT is waiting for the Borough Council, different authorities.

2nd video on this link contains an East Stand Update towards the end.

KT seems mightily frustrated with NBC. Says club has done everything that has been asked of it, and is now waiting for the council to finalise the legalities and give the go ahead.

KT is clearly annoyed at the lack of progress within the council and you canít blame him .
The problem is , the council is going to be under severe scrutiny whatever path it takes towards the redevelopment .
Any perceived favouritism towards the football club is going to be lambasted by the public and quite rightly so .
Unfortunately whether you like it or not , the club has burnt its bridges and no one will do us any favours .
Many people in the town think the club should not even exist after what happened with the cash .
The current political agenda with the County Council and the furore around Mackintosh wonít be helping .
Itís a waiting game and I suspect it will go on for some time to come .
NTFC is persona non grata and we have to get over it

He also states that a paper is being prepared by Council Officers for the Cabinet but does not know what date it will be considered.

He asked fans to contact their local Borough Councillor. As I live outside Northampton I am unable to contact a Councillor but I hope local fans make the effort and contact local Northampton Councillors to get a date and put pressure on them to get a decision................please!!!

Without knowing the intricacies surrounding the current delay, it'd be a bit much writing to your local councilor and asking them to hurry up with reaching a decision. Yes, we've all heard about the issuing of identical leases to separate parties, but the current delay seems to surround land to the back of the stand. If the club wants voices to be raised in their support, then they need to go public with exactly what they are proposing, and what is the current sticking point?
As has been said above, NTFC has a major black mark against its name. The emphasis remains with the club to show (the Northampton public) that its actions and intentions remain above board.

Thomas has still to inform the clubs supporters as of his plans for our redevelopment resulting from whatever it is hes trying to extract from NBC.
After nearly 2.5 years do you think he could afford  the clubs supporters  of an inkling as to what he wants from the council and what the club can expect from its share?
If its the spring board our club is desperately seeking, we can all get on board.
All this anti council bollocks is madness as they only want whats best for us as a successful thriving local club is good for everyone.
This is what I know, probably all wrong but its all I have heard in bits and peices, please update me if ive missed the latest... possibly 10 boxes fitted out in the east stand shell with resturant etc costing possibly £4,000.000 only if the council grants leaseholds for parcels of adjacent lands..
My questions are £4m? Really? Does this represent value for money? Who is making the final decision on what is best for our club?  Is it people who wont even be at the club after the share out?
Unless we have a true vision of what we can really expect we should tread carefully.

KT will not publicise his vision until he knows what is within his jusisdiction.
It would be easy to talk Of grand plans only for the council to refuse the permissions required .
We would then all criticise the football club for failing to deliver .
Iím sure Kelvin is busting a gut to tell us all but simply cannot do so .
At the end of the day NTFC has no cards to play . Our previous owners have left us powerless and incredulous .

It really is quite simple.

The land which the East Stand sits on has 2 leases. All the club needs is for the council to agree to normalise those leases and return the land upon which the stand sits to NTFC.

There is nothing else to it.

I thought NTFC already held one of those leases? And didn't Kelvin imply before Christmas that this side of things had been all but sorted? As for Boot & Shoe's comment about the club being unable to tell us what their plans are. Absolute bollocks! There is nothing to stop them setting out their vision for that stand, and I would imagine doing so would help to pressure the council - assuming it's a decent vision.
