I see the Lincolnshire Lakes plan has been given the green light thus enabling Scunthorpe United FC to submit its own plans for a new stadium.
North Lincolnshire Council has granted outline planning permission for the project.
OH how the other half live.


I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

The thing on their side is the ex chairman  & the current Chairman , One owns the land and the other wants nothing but the best for them............................... Now the thing what will be the downfall ........ They don't have the fan base to half fill never mind fill the new stadium , they have only sold out Glumford park once i think?
Also the land Glumford Park stands on has shot up in value due to the new shopping center next door . How long will the Chairman keep funding them that is the question ?

They might have the fan base in the future with that amount of new housing, Scunthorpe's population would rocket and probably compete with Grimsby's.
Some Towns seem to be moving forward and some seem to be happy where they sit.
Scunthorpe steel works seems to be at risk if you believe the media, so why the need for this development.
Grimsby could be the new Aberdeen ( renewables )
Someone needs to get of their bottom and make things happen in Grimsby.

I might be wrong, but I don't think the ex chairman does own the land for the new ground. I'm sure it's someone else. And the land for their ground is worth the same as it always has been as there's a retail park next to and opposite. the new M&S devlopment won't add any extra value as the value has always been there.

I bet there's no lesser spotted flamingos to stop the project either

Our council doesn't want to benifit the team end of. I can almost guarenteed that if it was put to the councillors ; "is grimsby town football club an asset to the local population?" The against'a would outweigh the for's.

So since Town first touted the idea of a new a ground all those years ago Scunthorpe will have had two before we get ours.

Which only goes to show they got it wrong first time.

This is only a thought and I have no idea if it would work,

BUT

Could Town build our new stadium on the training ground at Cheapside.?
