Some years ago Sir Ian Wood offered to put up £50m of his own money to redevelop Union Street Gardens in Aberdeen. The council in its wisdom turned down his plans. So instead he built a multi-storey car park at the local hospital. At £10.7 it provided parking for 1000 cars on a fraction of the area of the old car park and freed up valuable land for further hospital development. I think it's time Football clubs also made more effort to cater for supporter parking and it doesn't need to be something the size of the Albion.

The club should be getting to increase its footprint around the stadium and not selling off prime land. 

 

Thid is land that is now lost to the club, possibly forever.

 

Dreadful decision by the board.  😡

Do we really need an answer as to what we could do with it now?  We may have another use for it in 10-30 years, but once we've sold it and it's been built on then the chance is gone forever.

 

We missed the chance with the Hinshelwood estate and look at it now. Horrible flats deliberately hiding the stadium and making the area look more undesirable, and we're making the same mistake again.

 

Flats are going to be built on it. More residents means more people to object when we ask for things like the fanzone.

 

It may be only used every second Saturday but it sill offers parking for the disabled. Presumably any replacement parking is going to mean more of a trek for them. Perhaps fine  for us able-bodied but my mate struggles to walk from the Albion and he'd be unable to go if he has to walk further.

 

The lack of communication from the club is dreadful as well. I'm presuming that they are deliberately holding off saying anything until the season ticket sales are complete as they don't have to worry about those who are unable to walk not renewing (assuming that they're going to supply a replacement area for car parking, but who knows?
