Blackpool Football Club is working with the town’s council to help deliver a new East Stand at Bloomfield Road.
The full document states that the stadium design is outside the scope of the Councils plan and of course that the club have their own private plans for the development. I suspect that the artists impression is just that and not a specific indication of how it will eventually look.Ah so they're going for the BOWL are they - The Bloomfield Bowl. It is going to look even more like the Keepmoat than before. I think its smart just to fill it in for now, we don't fill it at the minute but there is always room for expansion if it was necessary.
Looks like with that structure behind the East they're definitely planning on knocking all those houses down then, must have finally convinced the tenants. I imagine Oyston wasn't too hard pressed to pull out of the plans when the price to buy them out started rising, the "hey, I tried" approach.
great news if true, It will certainly smarten the area up no end. I am surprised the council have not started compulsary purchases of properties at the back of foxhall, its turned into a proper hole recently.Like the pic on P13 with the caption regarding The George Hotel being a "locally listed building with strong archtectural features" Someone obviously forgot to tell the demolition team that knocked it down.
P42..Gives the impression there will be no more affordable housing tbuilt on the old Mecca site along with Henry St and Central Drive housing to be demolished?
Bollocks to the east stand Blackpool is a tourist town and all that money should be spent on things for tourists.The council is inviting feedback on the plan here. Always a good idea to show enthusiasm

A little bird told me about this before the news broke. And the training ground project is practically sorted. After the neglect and downright greed of the Oyston years, we now have the ideal owner and our club is in the best of hands and heading in the right direction.

On thd plan shown above it suggests all the properties go right up to the road adjwcent to Revoe park, not just those adjacent to the ground. That would require a CPO. I can see all that taking some time.A little bird told me that SS is going to buy or has already bought those houses.
