Decision Day

News From 12th July 2000

New ground

Tomorrow night North East Lincolnshire Council meet at 7pm at the Town Hall in Grimsby to make one of the most important decisions in our club's 120 year history. The full council will meet to vote on whether to change the council's local plan to allow the new stadium at Great Coates to go ahead in principle. Although not the final hurdle, the decision is critical to the final success of the planning application, and has been recommended by the council's director of planning Keith Archer.

Today the club published the results of their comprehensive survey of every household in the entire county.

Of the almost 14,000 who returned the questionnaire, 84 per cent supported building the stadium off the A180 at Great Coates, with 11 per cent opposed to the scheme.

From Cleethorpes Park ward, which contains Blundell Park, there were 1,111 replies, 94 per cent of which supported the scheme.

Even the ward which includes Great Coates, in addition to urban parts of Grimsby had a majority vote in favour of the scheme with 63 per cent of the 1,160 respondents in favour, and 33 per cent against

Within the hands of a few councilors lie the hopes and aspirations of thousands of people in Grimsby and the surrounding area, as well as nearly as many Grimbarian exiles scattered around our planet in nearly every country on the globe.
