Foghorn,
Don’t think it’s wuite that easy, PP doesn’t last forever, and those residents could and would object if new stand was higher!
No way would blues contemplate moving the boxes either,
So yes I’m in favour but not as simple a task as many suggesting!

Those listed buildings are part of Brum's recent history anyway so should remain as they are and not flattened for a football club. Enough damage has been done in Birmingham over the years by councils etc that don't care about local history. Make do with the land we've got as far as I'm concerned. Got to be said though that St Andrews is looking extremely tired at the moment and the fact it was done on the cheap really shows.

Yeah but if they object?

Planning permission has been granted years ago. Its easily done and we could convert that stand into something great.

I could increase the capacity by 3 k, virtually overnight just by ripping out the row of boxes and re-jigging the seating.

They could even make a steep two tiered stand maybe

Agree about Plymouth stand. It’s brilliant.

Back in the sixties they were in nice condition
They were thinking of listing them because of the unique (art deco ?.?) design.
I understand they were wrecked about ten years ago. Have they restored them?
