David Cardoza answers questions from supporters
Thank you to all supporters who submitted a question to the Chairman via firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Tuesday.
As promised, we have asked your questions and the Chairman's answers are now available on our YouTube channel.
For ease of viewing, we have split the feature in to four parts.
Many of you asked about the restricted view seats, how many there will be and what can be done to limit these. As many questions were similar, these are all dealt with in part one where we cover all topics asked about these seats. The Chairman also says that having any restricted view seats at all, however few a number, is far from ideal but should only be a temporary situation until boxes can be extended all the way along the East Stand as part of future redevelopment work. He also confirms the club's intention in the near future to put in planning permission to increase the capacity of the North and South Stands, work that can be carried out when increased income from the new facilities/footballing success allows.
In last week's Q&A
, the Chairman had spoken about how in order to get this loan to redevelop the stadium, the club had to come up with a workable business plan, showing the level of income we expect to achieve, and we had to spend the necessary amount to give us the facilities to achieve this.
In part 2, subjects covered include dug outs, swipe card admission, the West car park, the West Stand suites, the Conference Centre and timings.
Part 3 covers the overall capacity, disabled spaces, when the East Stand will open and the tendering process.
Part 4 is about the fans village, the hotel, training facilities, planning permission and floodlighting.
Thank you to all who submitted a question to the club as requested at the foot of the Q&A
