Not living in NE Lincs, but is it the same council that looks after both Grimsby and Cleethorpes town centres, just thinking back to the  pavement in Grimsby that had to be replaced very shortly after being put down, and now Cleethorpes being spruced up, because if it's the same people who are involved with the new stadium we could finish up with a plastic pitch.


It's taken them long enough, but was on the High Street today and it's actually looking really good now.

I think the Yorkies will be quite be impressed on there way into Cleethorpes sea front now after having to drive through Grimsby

Yes. Both part of NE Lincs along with Immingham and the villages up that way and the villages out to Hatcliffe, but not Holton-le-Clay oddly


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Everton dock stadium to cost £half a billion


£500 million for a 50,000 capacity works out as £10,000 per seat.  I don't know if infilling a dock is relatively cheap compared to the price of building a stadium once the foundation has settled.

Why go to the expense of filling the dock in?

There's enough derelict land next to the bridge to build on.

The other problem is that of access. Will APB allow traffic along Murray Street and through the gatehouse to the new stadium? If they don't, that only leaves access via Humber Street to the traffic lights at Cleethorpes Road (assuming they repair or demolish the bridge).

Yes but who owns this derelict area off Wickham Road?

The Blundell Park footprint does not quite fit on the land between Wickham Road and Murray Street.

Why not build the community stadium at Freeman Street and use the derelict dock area as a car park?  It would only be a five minute walk.

Personally feel we should be making use of public transport hubs, cycle parks and footways to any new stadium to discourage the use of cars for traffic and pollution reasons. We have a new industry locally in green energy and we should be embracing it and doing everything we can as a town to be as green as possible. We are a small place and I don’t think anywhere in Grimsby and Cleethorpes is anything more than about 45 mins at a leisurely pace on a bike from the Docks/Freemo area.

I’m sure Look & Learn promised we’d gave those (with stations halfway up tower blocks) in the far off distant future of the year 2000.
