    Thanks for this. Somewhat concerned they think our colours are pink n purple; "On the first three panels above the substation are proposed three panels in purple and pink emblazoned with the crest of DHFC".

    Also can't see any mention or provision for a wheelchair area or disabled access in the main stand, haven't been through it all in detail though

    I would presume you need this provision by law, as a new build, so it will be in there somewhere. Not that it matters, as the one we have in the current stand is never actually designated for that on a matchday anyway, with able bodied people packing it out...

    Wouldn't the 'demountable canvas banners' around the ground on matchday be a bit of a issue every game, who is putting them up and down all the time and storing them carefully away?
    Good luck getting volunteers to do that in January in the pissing rain with no cover!

    There's not much more to say on top of what I said already really. The clubhouse looks excellent. They're saying no "permanent" structures on MoL and it's all in the footprint of the astroturf, so no covered terrace.

    I think it looks pretty good. Apart from having no covering on 3 sides. Maybe, along with the demountable canvas banners, there could be some kind of retractable canvas covering overhead. Rather like a big long modern shop awning. In pink n blue obviously

    Raising something that I am sure has already been considered and noted, but there looks to be only single-ish file corridor for fans to filter past the main stand and this requires taking stairs. It's a real pinch point in the current stadium when crowds are large and the provision here seems lesser.

    I think this could be a really practical solution.

    However, does anyone else think the whole pink and blue thing is getting a bit tired? Also connotations with a certain politician and his old school tie? Could we use the new ground as an opportunity to completely rebrand? New colours for a new era? Something that goes well with jeans?

    How about letting each individual player and fan decide what colours to wear?

    I was also worried about this so asked at the consultation. If I remember correctly the walkways are 3 meters wide and don’t have the pinch points that we currently have in the far corner. I think it will be an improvement.

    3 meters wide? So Mishi might just be able to fit through. :D
