Opposition to the Stadium

There has already been considerable opposition to the stadium plan from local residents. The principal objections they have are :-

Loss of the forest and ejection of wildlife from the area
The stadium complex dominating the skyline
Increase in pollution
Noise from the stadium speedway track and pop concerts
Disturbance of toxic or hazardous materials due to disturbance of waste
Traffic gridlock on match days and pop concerts
Parking chaos due to insufficient space at the new stadium
Anti-social behaviour from fans
The protestors have banded together under the name of “Shaw Forest Protection Group”. More information about their campaign can be found by visiting their web site at www.sfpg.org.uk
