I imagine the council are getting more than a little pee'd off with Ronald now.

We have to remember that the council are due a nice little windfall from this project (£5m plus If I remember rightly) for road improvements and general tidying up around the town. I believe quite a chunk of that is due before work can even start as well. Plus it is holding up their "pedestrianised" plans for the town centre area of London Road.

If this 3 sided monstrosity gets built whilst Ron is in control. I for one will be astounded.

Given some of their recent efforts including combining traffic, pedestrians, cyclists and small children into one shared space, anything that prevents the council from spending a further £5m on this sort of thing could be viewed as a bonus.

Someone to give Ron some more money. Or him to leave. I'm not fussed either way.

I thought Sainsburys was putting up the money in order to get us out of roots hall. All amended plans seem to have been passed, yet still no movement.
Something has got to give soon. Either it starts, or it officially collapses in a heap.
I'm hoping that with planning in place, its an attractive prospect for someone else to bail it out if (when) Ron declares it tits up

The amended plans for the Sainsbury store have been passed. But not the ones for the stadium. Add to that still no agreement with some of the shops on Vic Ave. Plus Ron not stumping up the required cash for SBC, as part of the S106 agreement. And we are still a million miles away from anything positive happening.

remind me, what was the changes to the stadium plans? Was it change of use after the Casino pulled out? I thought the 'phased' approach had been passed.
On the Roots hall side of things, has Prospects finally been sorted or are they likely to do a runner with the deposit again? Shops face CPO which I would have hoped the council would be persuing by now. It was only the scuzzy little pizza place(s) holding out wasn't it? Mind you; and I'm no expert, but I suspect any real attempts on CPO will be called in for review by the govenment.
I'm sure the S106 money would be easily found if that was the only thing between Ron and his nest egg coming to Fruition and Sainsburys building a new flagship store.

The amended stadium plans include some changes of use and also an increase in size of some of the units. And associated landscaping changes. These plans have not been passed. As you will see in the first post in this thread... they are still "Pending Consideration" which would suggest Ron has not provided the suitable drawings, assessments or paperwork as yet.

Prospects as far as I know has all been sorted. But you can never be sure can you!

And I think the pizza places are still holding firm. Which will mean a long drawn out CPO process still to come.

In short, I think we are still quite a way from anything happening, unless Sainsbury cough up some more money to get all of the above sorted.
