SEVERAL videos/pictures of Brandon have been posted on social media in the last few days which are upsetting people. We can understand therefore that feelings are running high.
However, it is irresponsible for people to suggest fans visit the stadium to ‘help themselves’ to mementos and we urge people NOT to try getting into the stadium.
The stadium is in a dangerous state and we should also consider the local residents, who deserve some respite from recent events.
Recent entries into the stadium are now being reported to the police by local residents.
Additionally, it is not helpful that people are ‘writing off’ Brandon. Yes, it is in a shocking state as a result of Brandon Estates failing to secure the site. Despite this, it CAN be restored - and this is currently a far more realistic possibility than finding new land which is not in the green belt, and overcoming all manner of obstacles and objections to get planning permission.
Our campaign has tremendous momentum with the Borough Council, Brandon and Binley Woods Parish Councils, Speedway and stock car fans, the local Member of Parliament, numerous Councillors and most importantly, the vast majority of local residents all opposing the redevelopment of the stadium.
As a Campaign Group, we will stand firm and continue to do EVERYTHING we can, in a responsible manner, to stop the redevelopment.
