Oh yay another thread had to be created on the matter so this multi named individual can gloat on the matter. The root cause for the 10 years of hurt was the fact that your ex board sold your old ground and Hove Borough Council allowed them to do so. I'm not sure where in your mind you think anyone in Lewes or Falmer is responsible for that decision or why they should assume responsibility for ten years of hurt, when the football club only managed to submit an application for the new stadium after the millenium. Although I suppose now you got the application approved BHFC fans will be keen to change the history of the club.

I take it now this stadium which is oh sooooo vital to Brighton & Hove FC (not) is going to be built. We can expect the other end of our beloved A27 to become chaos as work begins next year!

To Norman Baker....You sad man.....there are more important things in life that football and I for one am fed up with B&H fans rambling on about the need for a new stadium etc...I supported the view that Falmer was not the best site considering it WAS NOT PART OF BRIGHTON and was green belt land....and the reason they had no stadium was due do the INCOMPETENCE of B&H club....however the decision is made LET'S MOVE ON AND DISCUSS LEWES ISSUES

Agree, lets move on to Lewes issues. I am glad a descion has been (albeit the wrong one). Now there will no more bleating, winging and misinformation from B&HA. Now awaiting plans for hotels, casino, shopping mall for the site. It cannot make money with football alone. Not long till Lewes is joined to Falmer now.

Ditto, i don't think there should be an appeal that period has now passed and there are other issues to contend with. It's now up to BHFC to find the money to finance the stadium, the rise in stadium costs means that it will be more than the original 50 Million quote. The stadium needs a continuous revenue to pay back the bank loans, so we should expect applications for a hotel (which they already have a report on) and other developments down the line.

My main dislike for the scheme is that it will cause extra development in addition to the stadium. It is all about money. Very little is about the sport, youth and simple pleasures.
I hope that I am proved wrong.

Well let's hope (or pray), Brighton do have a good youth team and that would be something to look forward too. Although financially they will probably have to sell some of there best players, such as Lynch to ensure they can afford the stadium.
The end result nice stadium, poor team playing against Accrington Stanley in League 1 or 2 and in front of crowds less than 10000 once the novelty has worn off. The business plan is set up for future development, because they need a continuous revenue to pay off the massive bank loans. Further development is an inevitability and tbh a need or otherwise too much of a financial risk is placed on the Brighton taxpayer who will fork the bill everytime the club fails to attain 13500 fans for each league match.

all very well guys but where are they going to park ? In the village the locals will love that, they have only just got rid of the students that used to park there

Good point. I'm sure the Albion hasn't considered transport and parking in its lengthy planning application. Thank you for pointing that out. Do you think they considered the need for seats? What about a grass pitch? Or goals? Aren't the Albion lucky to have someone so forward-thinking to point out possible problems?!

Here Here James, its a shame these people aren't interested in local teams. All they seam to want is free parking and lots of nik nak shops. As a result Lewes is suffering as everytime someone tries to modernise the town or do something for the local area they hit a brick wall. It's not in keeping with the historic town!
Give us a stadium, Give us a stadium, Give us a stadium, Give us a stadium.

Football is a game of two halves. In one half are narrow-eyed businessmen and their attendant accountants, builders, lawyers and retailers. In the other are a protean soup of tribals standing around with their brains in escrow and their wallets open. An open goal indeed.

I do hope they rename the Club after all this friction. "Somewhere Near Brighton & Hove Albion" or "Falmer & Brighton & Hove United" perhaps.

I use the bleedin' A27 every day. The current fascination with football is a clear manifestation of mass psychosis. Any increase in the time it takes me to get to work due to this abberation in reality is well worth moaning aboat.
Anyone who thinks football is at all important (or as Andy says... have nothing better to do) could spend a certain amount of time wondering why it is important to them. If they come up with some sort of reasonable answer please let me know... 'cos it completely escapes me.
