NUST have previously reported on the proposed development at Strawberry Place – having met developers acting on behalf of Mike Ashley. We can now report that following the submission of a planning application 2015/1778/01/DET by developers Maricco Ltd, NUST have filed an objection to the planning application. All objections can be viewed here on the Council’s website. Please feel free to register your own objections to this scheme which will prevent forever any expansion of the ground. NUST believe that the 52,000 capacity would not be enough if Newcastle were in Leicester’s position and that this is an extremely shortsighted move.
Norman Watson Chair of NUST stated ‘”we have been observing the proposed development for some time and have met with developers to discuss their plans. It is clear that the proposal will prevent any future ground expansion which is of concern to NUST and many supporters”

The true faith Facebook pages are the open forum for readers to have a bit crack, exchange opinions, news, thoughts on Newcastle United, football in general and whatever else might take their fancy.
It's a closed site so you have to apply to join. We want it to be a lively place for debate but there certain guidelines we expect everyone to follow. Basically this involves not being a twat. Our definition of a twat is variously racists, sexists, homophobes, bullies, bigots, smartarses and those who want to punt anything to readers without our permission.
