[An offline supporter has asked me to post:]

Is is possible, within the existing parameters of the planning application, to shift the playing area towards the Bristol End? This would reduce the impact on the Pop Side steps near the Bath End and give us more space for terracing.

I'm quoting from the person who is advising the Club on such matters...

The line of sight between the supporters on a terrace/seated area and having a clear view of the touch line is called the C value. If the pitch was moved west then the C value would get worse at the Bristol end because as the touch line is closer to you so you will be looking at the back of somebody's head to see it. The new level of the pitch, which only really impacts the area nearest the current Family stand, actually improves that C value. If the concern is the bottleneck we currently have at the Bath end near the Programme hut and making that significantly better then shortening the pitch could be done without making the pitch ‘under-sized’.
