Statement: East stand plans

6th May 2019

All NTFC Supporters Trust board members have now seen plans relating to the re-development of the east stand at Sixfields.

The plans, issued in February 2016, are labelled ‘Option 5’ and comprise three basic drawings which outline a three-level completion of the east stand.

As far as we are aware, they have not as yet been submitted to Northampton Borough Council (NBC) as part of a planning application.

If built to these drawings, the east stand will incorporate 18 hospitality boxes and a number of lounges, which we feel makes best use of the existing structure. The drawings also show car parking and a fans zone to the rear of the east stand.

The Trust has not seen any detailed plans relating to the wider Sixfields site.

The plans were sent to us on a confidential basis and we have repeatedly requested that the football club makes all of these drawings public, so that the wider fanbase can see the plans for themselves.

We are willing to work together with NTFC and NBC to help speed up the planning process and get the re-development moving forward at the earliest opportunity.

The Trust’s position on the delayed development of the east stand, as detailed in our statement of 18 April, remains unchanged.
