Protesters want the Bears to leave Brum

Protesters opposed to the ground redevelopment want the club to leave Edgbaston and relocate to a brand new location near the NEC. Actually there was a great site for the club in Perry Barr, big field next to BCU's new sports facility but that is apparently going to become a distribution warehouse instead.

The opposition seems entrenched as does the club. Personally i can't see any way for the council to grant permission as it would be a courageous decision and as people who watched Yes Minister know those kinds of decisions are the worst...

In more bad news real doubts are being cast on the club's ability to repay the big loans it will need to make to carry out the redevelopment even if they do get the green light.
