"Iconic Super-Stadium"

That is how the proposed new Forest ground has been described...

Plans were unveiled yesterday for a purpose-built 50000 seat stadium in Clifton, costing £45-55 million. If it gets the go-ahead, the new stadium will "embrace new transport infrastructure developments, the latest in green technology and be a focus for new jobs and events - helping to boost the reputations and economies of both the city and the county". Click on the artist's impression of the new stadium above to link to the Nottingham Forest website, where you can read more about the plans, and watch the press conference where the plans were revealed.

But not everyone is supportive of the idea! Particularly concerned are residents in nearby Gotham are worried that the stadium would spoil their village... Read the story on the BBC news site, where you can also see Mark Arthur's statement at the press conference, and watch a video of what the new ground might look like.

What do you think of the plans? Are you a Forest fan? Do Forest need a new ground? Is the proposed site a good place for a new ground?

(Thanks to Tony Cassidy who blogged about this story yesterday.)

I think this development will not only be good for Forest but for Nottinghamshire as a whole!

I look forward to seeing the plans in more detail.
