As we start the new season, the Board would like to take this opportunity to update all our fans on the progress to relocate at a new community stadium.
We are now in discussion with landowners over 2 possible sites. We will be meeting with the landowners in the next couple of months to progress talks over both sites.
The landowners do not wish us to make public the details of either site. We understand that this is frustrating to our supporters, but we hope that everyone understands the commercial constraints of the many parties involved in moving the community stadium project forward.
The good news is that Alan, Tony and Gareth are doing everything humanly possible to push the project forward, and they confirm that the landowners are also being very positive and helpful.
The disappointing news is that for technical reasons, even if we are able to agree a site, it is doubtful that we will be able to start work on it for at least another year.
Every current indicator is that our home will continue to be the Bob Lucas Stadium for the immediate future.
We will provide another update when we have made significant progress in discussions, which we hope will be before the end of this year.
