    Yes, it's the area to the left of Holt Town metrolink stop as you head toward the stadium from town, mostly industrial units and wasteland at present. Some taxis from town will go through the area as a back route to the stadium.

    We had the maps for the original plans for Holt Town and the housing 'corridor' that they wanted to link up to the city centre on the thread a couple of years back.

    There was chit chat that they might need other funders because of the financial crash.

    I can imagine money being made available in some form of loan perhaps but surely City wont do a Robbie Fowler and become a landlord to 7,000?

    Why not ? It's another few million a year into the coffers. It could open up revenue streams that we haven't even dreamed of. All the roads could be named after separate sponsors. We could do deals with utility companies to push their product in return for favourable rates for the tenants and a nice sponsorship for us ;-)
    Seriously though, we've already got a great relationship with the council, but this would send it to a new level.
    Developing the corridor helps the campus too. It means from the City centre to the stadium will be a nice place to be, instead of how it is now.

    Would he very surprised if the club threatened legal action. most contract disputes go to arbitration first.

    U
    Before any dispute goes to Arbitration in Construction it would go to Adjudication.
