A good idea, but I think the wrong area. they mention the new "Parkway" station on the railway, but it will be a very long walk to the new ground.
Also I can't see the A453 being finished by 2014 as they have talked about it for years with nothing being done.

i wasn't sure at first but now i've seen the plans and read the comments from community/business leaders (even eurostar), i think its a great idea. The FA seem keen on it too and are looking for world cup venue's and a new stadium like that would be right up their street.

It would make our sporting front in nottingham look very strong with the ice stadium being top dog and trent bridge expanding its encouraging for the city as a whole to take step forward and get even better.

I would hope the old stadium could stay their and be used for another sports stadium athletics/rugby, but i doubt the playing area is big enough or the demand it there.

anyway looking forward to the future...... YOU REDS!!!!

What a complete and utter mistake they are making if they move the City Ground near Clifton and Gotham. The roads will not cope for one. A very big mistake. I will oppose the move. Where it is now is within walking distance of the City Centre and encourages people to walk. If it is moved out of town then people will use their cars. What a disaster that will be for the area.

I've just watched the statement read out by the Forest bloke. So he believes the minority have rights over the majority. With 40 to 50 thousand seats it hardly makes a majority does it now.

Somebody will be making money from this done deal thats why it will go ahead.

We have enough problems at Clifton we don't need football louts to compound the problems.

It's sod you mate we're doing it anyway and heres a brick through your window as compensation.

Just look back at the trouble Derby residents had from the Baseball ground.

Back in "The bad old days" most people who lived around football grounds had a bit of trouble. A lot grounds were in built up areas. People knew the grounds were there before they moved in.

At Clifton we don't have a choice. It will be sited right next to the new retirement village almost.

Sounds bad planning.

Pride Park is well away from residential areas, although parts of Chaddesden and Alvaston/Wilmorton get a lot of people walking through and/or parking.

Who's going to bother to travel all the way out to Clifton any way. I hope they go bust and build a supermarket instead. It should be placed more central like Bulwell Common.
