Isn't there an enormous pot of money put aside for the kasbah regeneration? We could be tapping into that I hope


That money cannot be used to fund a private limited company like GTFC. It is for the infrastructure to attract businesses.

Mate of mine who works on the docks was banging on about this the other week, I just assumed he was on about freemo, fantastic if we could pull it off. Fair play to the Council. Was it Middlesbrough or Sunderland who built their new ground on the docks?

Freemo/Docks to me is one and the same in terms of area it`s still THE place and it will still massively aid the Freemo regeneration.

A football stadium is the infrastructure needed to attract a football club...

Taken from today's Telegraph....

Grimsby docks, although relegated to the bottom of the initial potential sites over five years ago, has hit top spot because of its need for regeneration.
Any regeneration of the site could be similar to the Middlehaven development in Middlesbrough. Once an industrialised area alongside the River Tees it has undergone major redevelopment including the opening of Middlesbrough FC's Riverside Stadium in 1995.

What about access?,  There is no access off Riby square,  the only way through is via flyover or through side streets.  Humber street bridge is unsafe.
Huge congestion.  where are pubs and eateries?
Its a no from me

Oh Grimsby Grimsby

Exactly.

The whole Docks/Riby Square/Freeman Street area should be viewed as one, I personally would go further and say right up and over to Corporation Bridge, taking in all of the water that should be regenerated.  

The article mentions how Middlesbrough's stadium is an example.  I don't know if there are future plans for further investment in that area but I think we need to aim for better than what Middlesbrough have got in terms of the whole package.  When I went there earlier this year it was pretty bland and very much the typical mid-to-late 90's identikit stadium in the middle of a grey industrial estate.

If it ends up there it’ll become known as the Kasbah. Inevitably we will have that Clash song for the team to come out to. 😉

Unless some aliens are going to parachute a new stadium straight in, I would imagine the developers, the council and the football club will be looking to include all infrastructure issues such as road access, public transport, bars, restaurants and parking as part of a total regeneration package.

If it's a no from you, please explain what you would prefer?

Pretty sure the whole plan won't just consist of putting the stadium on Garibaldi Street Car Park and hoping everything else just works out.
