    Does this mean the screen in that corner is going?

    *EDIT* It's not - the drawings have it in the new structure.

    Though one of the plans shows "screen reduced in height" so may be a smaller screen than at present.

    I liked this bit on the plans.. "Eltons" I guess this refers to the Elton John Suite but it seems more like Eltons.. stay out!

    Note also two female toilets and one disabled. No gents. I guess that's the way things are going in the "modern" age.

    By the time the new stand gets built there will be no differentiation of sexes ; humanity will have evolved into a homogeneous, asexual existence where all procreation is implemented remotely in baby farms in former county boroughs , far from the prying eyes of the intrusive London intelligentsia , like Bedfordshire .

    This will of course instigate the compete downfall and annihilation of humanity.

    The Bedfordshire bit is gruesomely dystopian.

    Thought I'd bump this as I completely forgot about the statement from the previous Mayor of Watford, saying we might move location if planning approval is not given.

    Recently SD has changed tack stating the developments are now going to be phased in rather than big plans on a new stand.

    Also, I wonder where we are with the plan for a multi-story car park on the old allotments. From what I gather, this has been shelved also.

    I believe there are things happening in the background, but this was posted April last year, some 9 months ago. It would be interesting to know where we actually are with all this and whether extending to 30,000 is actually possible on the current site.

    At the At Our Place event before xmas Duxbury said the club has just engaged consultants to review all the possibilities and present options to the board. I guess it depends on the consultants' brief as to whether relocation is on the table or not.

    The 600 space multi storey car park is being built. But it's for the hospital not the stadium. Building it releases land currently used by staff parking on what was previously the old power station. The club is getting new parking at the top of the allotments immediately behind the Rookery. But this is to replace the car park they lease at the bottom of occupation road. That land and most of the allotments are to be redeveloped as housing.

    Drove past today. There was a grab lorry shifting earth from the corner, so must be ongoing.

    I love old photos, I zoom in on places I know and see how they've changed. I find it fascinating.

    I can't help it! :)

    A tweet from the club pre-match yesterday confirmed work on the north west corner is stepping up ahead of 19/20 and so for the remainder of the season there will be no big screen in that corner.

    My Arsenal supporting mate always laughs when I refer to the "big screen".

    I heard that Bassini was taking it to Bolton.

    I think that particular deal is off.

    Bolton chairman saying that the name being touted around on social media was true but has shown no proof of funds.

    My Bolton supporting mate asked me on Friday about Baz. By whatsapp I detailed: the name changes, Red Lion 'development', immediate locking-up of the concessions' cash, the 'safe' episode and the post-play-off tweets. I haven't heard from him since then...

    Does anyone know the plans for the corner?
    It was strange not being able to see a screen last night, I hope there will be one in view for next season.

    Plans are literally at the top of this page. They show a replacement screen but possibly lower down.

    Heard they are taking out both screens (one already gone of course..) and putting them up on top of the Rookery and Vic Road End stands?

    EDIT: Just seen UEA's post.

    Anyone know what that building is at the bottom of the allotments ?

    A brewery perhaps , but it’s not by a river .
