New stadium development

Post by Reg's corner » Sat Nov 30, 2019 9:52 am

With S plans being unveiled the other night I just wondered what we thought and can we pull it off?
In theory could transform the town. Most clubs have to relocate to spare land when building a new stadium so this plan is very advantageous. Well done so far everybody.

Yes well done to all so far but I'll hold until it's officially signed and announced.

Apparently we won't have to move house while the decorators are in.

Look good, and it is strategically the correct time to do it. If our plans are to attempt to reach League 2 again then we should take advantage of the less strict ground regulations while in the national league. We would probably have no choice but to move out should we attempt something like this in the EFL.

Before spades there are some very large hurdles of Planning Permission, Plans with Building Regulations Approval, funding & a Construction Contract. Having watched the fans forum I like the clubs stated ambition and their ideas. There is a long way to go to turn it all into reality. I hope it all comes off

I think the plans are great!
My one concern is how many people want to stay in a hotel in Aldershot? But I guess thats all part of the regeneration of the town as a whole?

Well this is a point. There's loads of hotels in Basingstoke, a couple in Hook. I often wonder who stays in these places but there mostly full and make money. When you factor people working away, doing courses locally, seeing friends.. The same will be said of Aldershot..

Aldershot has plenty of hotel rooms at present and Farnborough is also well catered for.

The hotel will come with conference facilities. With conferences come people. People need places to stay while at the conference, so guess what? A bit simplistic I know, but it is amazing what business hotels do with the right facilities. Most hotels' business during the week is businessmen and then leisure at weekends. Even now, I bet a hotel there would get a fair few supporters, home and away, staying there if we were at home. I'm not saying that that alone would make the hotel viable, but coming from Norfolk it would certainly be a bonus not to drive back after the game for me. It's surprising how hotels fill up at weekends, even in Aldershot.

Although Aldershot in itself has very little to recommend it, Farnham and Guildford are only 10 minutes away. The main advantage being Aldershot would probably be cheaper re. hotel stays.

We'll be able to fill 2 or 3 rooms every other week with the likes of Fylde & Barrow regular visitors :shock:
