A meeting was held on Thursday 19th December 2013 with building, planning and football consultants in respect of the new stadium project at Meadow Park.\r\n\r\nBesides informing the Football Management Board of the outcome from the meeting , it was felt prudent to disseminate this to supporters and followers of the Tigers.\r\n\r\nThe new stadium design will be planned and submitted to meet a minimum 4000 capacity, so satisfying current grading regulations for Football Conference Premier membership; incorporating a main seated stand with a full range of football and additional facilities, the remainder will be constructed for standing terracing with both ends being covered.\r\n\r\nTo assist in finalising the outline planning submission desired by Gloucester City Council, an architect having considerable experience of the design and build criteria required to meet current and possible future development of all styles and levels of football stadia, is being used.\r\n\r\nTo dispel any misinformation, none of the existing structures still in place at Meadow Park can be recycled.  \r\n\r\nThe new stadium will be elevated from its original base level to comply with recent agreements determined with the Environment Agency. \r\n\r\nIt will also be repositioned within the current footprint of the site to provide more car parking space and possible future expansion, so minimising any perceived flood risk threat to the structural side of the redevelopment, as so graphically seen in 2007.\r\n\r\nThe Club at this stage will not enter into any further dialogue, as this statement is issued solely as part of the policy to keep interested parties informed with progress moving forward.
