I listened to the video in the council chamber & was surprised that parking was a big issue as I have never seen the car park full. Do some people park in the street nearby? There was a minor panic about the growing size of the stadium as though the bigger we made it the more people would be there. No mention was made of the fact that the stand was basically built to aid the match day experience of those already there. (Having not been previously built by the council in the first place). I would expect only a modest increase in the matchday numbers based on the numbers that went to the McCain stadium when a couple of leagues higher than we are now. They spoke of planting to deaden the sound whereas the stand would actually help that cause I would think. Anyway despite my concerns, common sense prevailed and the meeting passed the proposal with only one vote against. The guy who voted against, talked of the disruption & noise 2 times a week when on average it would be more like 1 time every 2 weeks apart from the extra Tuesday night games early season with a smaller crowd but next to nothing in the few months of the summer closed season.
