There has been little or no news on the development of Bloomfield Road for some time now. The last building work was the West Stand and the Kop (North Stand) which were built in 2001, together with the "temporary" East Stand (known by Blackpool fans as the Gene Kelly [or GK] Stand becuase it has no roof. No roof in the English winter climate = very wet away fans!) Last week members of the "Blackpool Vital" fans website met with chairman Karl Oyston. So the news now about the stadium development seems to stand as this: The South Stand will only be built as and when there are pre-lets in place for all the office space within the South Stand. As it stands at present there is one pr-let agreement (though no idea how much office space is involved), plus the boarded up area behind the Kop is to be a two floor, Drop-In Centre. Also this week the club stated that planning permission has gone in to increase capacity in the GK Stand by 1,000. Whilst this would be mainly for away fans they are also apparently trying to include in the application, permission to split the stand should there be any games where extra home capacity is needed. The club are also looking at adding additional seating in various parts of the West and Kop - about another 100 seats. Coupled with a possible extension to the GK Stand, that would take capacity at Bloomers to about 10,800. Going back to the South Stand, the club also confirmed that once it is built there will be a two floor hotel inlcuded within the stand (which would be in addition to the huge Travelodge currently being built on BFC Properties land the other side of Bloomfield Road). Any news, pictures etc of the stadium and any development can be posted in here!
