Which of course is fine if you travel from somewhere that there are other Rovers fans, less beneficial if you don't.

Agreed Foggy. I dont do Facebook.

A lot of fake news as far as I can read. I very much doubt that any documents that set out how much a parking charge might be even exists.

The car park is large enough for the 5000 capacity with 2 people in each car.

It would be big enough for a much larger capacity if 4 people shared a car without any additional trip generation.....

Foggy's point about car sharing is the big nut to crack to really bring the carbon footprint down and reduce pollution and reduce congestion.

If some bright spark could develop a car sharing app for FGR supporters to make the whole car sharing thing work properly and to everybody's satisfaction that would be a very good job jobbed.

Huge day indeed - the meeting is at 6pm at Ebley Mill. It is open to the public, so would be good to have some fans there.

The councillors should be making their decision at the end of the meeting.

Surely the rationale - accessibility, stadium fit for purpose and a stunning, carbon neutral design - should win over a majority in an area as green and eco-friendly as Stroud?

Good point Foggy, travelling from Hucclecote and not knowing anyone else travelling from this area a substantial increase in cost is a major concern. Only 10 mins from jcn 11A to jcn 13 but can't see a park and ride being viable, and would take too much time to travel via Stroud, Quedgeley etc which could be possible p&r locations. A long way to go yet, but hopefully the issue of cost for those who need to use their cars can be considered, perhaps a small charge could be considered as an addition to season tickets making it more cost effective for those who attend more games.

Article online and in SNJ

Be good if fans could comment online as those opposing the development will certainly do so

Taking in some of the Eastington representative's coments, I would bet that back in the day, Eastington would even have objected to the positioning of J13, M5 and indeed, the M5 itself. :(

Some Eastington residents seem to think their town will be blighted with endless traffic jams, horrendous noise, :lol: and gangs of hooligans smashing up their houses on a weekly basis, many don't even seem to have bothered reading anything about the ground and are just objecting because that's what they like to do, middle England syndrome. Some seem to think DV should turn the whole area into a nice park for them to enjoy

The irony is that if the stadium is built it will actually create jobs, for which the good residents of Eastington may apply. If the stadium is not built the site will probably be covered by houses, which will put pressure on the services that they use and increase traffic massively.

You can go to Stroud District Council web site, go to development control meetings and there is a live video and audio stream on now.

no -one realistically is going to walk up the hill and 1000 yards into eastington-they have no need to !

its the perfect location-takes people straight on to the motorway -or the a419 into stroud direction.
no need whatsoever to go into eastington.

Reading blog, pretty strong objections and makes depressing reading if an FGR fan. Desperately hoping my fears are unfounded.

Yes Betty and a hard read...90 mins in so far...regardless of whether one is for or against ...i have rarely read such a load of old tosh objections...
CPRE have chipped in..so little respect for the Eco angle...or future of the planet...maybe they should let the field be used for fox hunting! Not one mention of what club have achieved putting ther area on the International map...or what Dale had done with the UN from the objectors , Sad really.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
