It was looked at but there isn't the required space for a stadium and the enabling development required to make it viable to the club to help pay for it all.

That's why is was rejected when the council looked at all the sites.

Stop repeating history.

Without an enabling development the new stadium will not happen. The club or JF havent got the money to build a stand alone stadium even if they can get various grants to assist

There was an article on Cod Almighty that suggested Garth Lane is the best place but also lists some of the reasons why Peaks Parkway was ranked as most feasible: http://codalmighty.com/site/ca.php?article=5961

Thanks for the link.

Garth Lane (Dockside) was assessed as the most suitable site. Peaks Parkway was assessed as the most available site. The consultants have recommended that only Peaks Parkway be assessed for viability.

Garth Lane is clearly now available according to the Telegraph article and the whole surrounding areas seems to be up for grabs for an "enabling development".

That being the case if Garth Lane was the most suitable it changes things. The problem here is the local council and there dithering which in turn as the Club going round and round wasting money on feasibility studies.A new ground is in the local plan so FFS Council set out where the Club can actually have it then get it built I wonder will we ever see it?

You could certainly avoid any traffic/parking problems by kayaking to the ground.

I can't see how or why we would have gone through all the rigmarole of all the procrastination regarding PP to then bin it at this stage in proceedings. That said, it would be nice to hear from someone in authority that there's progress.
