from documents that I have seen the new stadium is due for completion on 26/11/2012 and roots hall is due to be knocked down 24/9/2012, meaning a 2 month gap where we may have to nowhere to play. martin and gypsy boy always maintain that rootshall will not be touched until new stadium is complete From the official documents available, this clearly isnt true, would we have to groundshare at the start of season 2012/2013.

As a resident of st marys court, I would be very worried as demolition is due to start 3/10/11

the retail shops at fossetts are due to be started 06/3/2012

the stadium has work starting on 05/03/2012 and finishing 26/11/2012 meaning 60 weeks to build a 14,000 seater brand new stadium, but heres the strange thing

the missing stand at fossetts called the "West Stand" is due to have work starting 02/4/2012
and finished on 1/4/2013, so why not start work at the same time as rest of the stadium, unless its refering to the west side at roots hall being demolished in which case, you might have only aug to april to sample the delights of the west side

a bit of a mess methinks

Are any of those sentences actually questions? The font size is also too small to be big questions.

I prefer it when you talk about Clohessy.

The funding for the main stand is having to be sourced separately from the other three. I'd guess that if those dates are the current plan then that date is likely to get pushed back if anything as it will be dependent on that funding being obtained.

If it was an option to start it sooner then I'd presume that that is what would be done.

You've calculated 60 weeks between 5th Mar 2012 and 26th Nov the same year. Is that a mistake in the document you have seen, or your post?

This is the tender that has gone out with a time scale of the building works....On the bright side at least the whole project is out to tender now.

If its gone to tender does that mean the final premises on Vic Avenue are no longer a problem? That would seem to be a bigger question than anything.

I think i may have seen some info similar to this, on the face of it it sounds promising that there are dates fixed, but haven't we been here previously ??

Blimey they said the tender would go out late May or was that the result of that would be late May? I get confused. :cricko:

Still not resolved I believe.

But, plans moving ahead in tandem, which I guess means they expect to have the CPO's resolved in the next few months...

I've now seen the same document. It doesn't actually say that the ground will be demolished on 24/09/12 but that that is the date when construction of the supermarket shell will begin. I seem to recall mention that construction work would commence in what is now the Roots Hall car park whilst the Club are still using the current ground. Hopefully that is where the two month difference is.

Hopefully, but it has been suggested that the CPOs could take most of 2011 to resolve.

Don,t suppose the main construction would be delayed whilst the cpo's are taking place.The kebabs and pizza,s might get a bit dusty from the diggers and bulldozers at the back of the shops
