Grimsby Town FC stadium plans

Local Lib Dems, Councillor Steve Beasant and Kay Rudd, are opposing the Labour Council's decision to shortlist Freeman Street as a site for a new football ground.

Grimsby Town Stadium Plans

Steve said:

"I'm very concerned about the plan which I think is crazy. For a start there are people living where they want to build the stadium."

Local Lib Dem Campaigner Kay Rudd said:

"If the Football Ground was built, the traffic and parking would be a complete nightmare. Crime and anti-social behaviour are already a huge problem in the East Marsh and this would only make it worse."

Steve added:

"The Council commissioned an independent survey of 16 sites (see map overleaf) and Freeman Street was ranked as the joint worst. Amazingly, the Council have included it in their shortlist! The report even found that it would take ten years plus to get off the ground. This would further frustrate fellow Grimsby Town fans."
