We, the under-signed, are dismayed at the 'TRASH' group's actions in delaying and obstructing the building of a supermarket at the former Bristol Rovers site, which crucially prevents Bristol Rovers, and moreover the whole city, from having a new stadium. We express concern that the group have set up a company limited by guarantee, with the intent of going bankrupt, in order to avoid legal fees; express deep concern that the public purse will be paying much of this cost; state that the TRASH group is not representative of us, and call on the TRASH group to cease the obstruction of achieving the stadium the city so badly needs.

Please do not let football die in this city and country.

Need stadium to be built.
Can't see Sainsburys affecting
local traders , more likely to affect Tesco,Golden Hill and
Eastgate.

Please dont let small minded people forget the bigger picture this will be great for everyone in bristol

I live off filton avenue and when there is a match being played, the parking of cars by supporters is an absolute nightmare so lets get the new stadium built in the right place where parking can be catered for.

Football Clubs are still the most well known feature on a town or city's landscape.

Those football clubs with the better resources and facilities are the ones that will thrive.

Bristol Rovers need to develop a new stadium to surive.

They are a company with limited resources, being held to ransom by a disparate group of bourgeois outsiders, who have no real sense of community.

If these individuals have children, I wonder how they will feel when their schoolmates say in the playground " Your dad killed the Rovers!"

I have read that this group are legally based in Barnet. How can the legal proceedings in Bristol be challenged by individuals who are legally based in Barnet? But as it stands, this small group of individuals is threatening the future of an enterprise which has existed since 1883.

I wonder what type of investement they are making in Bristol? Probably just enough to enable them to make a killing when they sell their houses in Montpelier or Horfield.

Geoff Brain

I believe the Memorial Stadium to be an ideal location for a new supermarket to serve the needs of the local area and believe the local majority are in favour if a vote to all local residents was held.

Bristol needs this stadium, why so few dictate and stop this development that can only benefit the whole community.

We (and the whole of Bristol) need this stadium and we have been waiting long enough!

yes i live in Scunthorpe but just like to say, it would be better for the club if they get a new stadium and also benefit the local people even and most of all the non- football fans, that live in surrounding areas. Sainsbury's will appeal to everyone. If you haven't realized already Bristol Rovers current ground is located in a housing estate and people will agree, that its not the best location to have a football ground

Utg

Let us have the home we so desperately need to move our club forward

as an exiled Reading fan I bemoaned the loss of Elm Park until I went to the MadStad for the first time. Swansea, Brighton and Cardiff have followed suit and look where we all are now. My son is a Gashead and I have been many times to Twerton Park and the Mem, even to Eastville. There is no credible economic counterargument and as an earlier comment suggested the Green Party have wilfully ignored due process. I live near where the new stadium will be (it will happen) and am glad I pay South Glos council tax as I would be hopping mad if I was a Bristol taxpayer. Up the Gas!

I can't believe this project is being held up! Great opportunity for jobs and a excellent new stadium. This stadium is so badly needed, I don't understand how a handful of people can stop this great football club moving forward! UTG

It is a shame that the interests of a few prevent the building of an asset that will be advantageous for the whole city. This happened with Bristol City where a stadium in Ashton Vale by a landfill site would have been better that remaining in the center of Bedminster. This is a similar situation, stadia should be by good transport links and not in residential areas.

Sainsbury's would draw people to Gloucester road as people could park easily. Also Bristol desperately needs a modern stadium as we are an embarrassment compared to much smaller towns across the UK.

Up the rovers!

Long Term Rovers Fan

Lived in Bristol for 40 year, moved to Somerset because of daft inflated house prices. Stadiums, Metro System, Concert Venue, Blah, Blah,Blah.
Born and Bread in the Mead

We need this stadium, Bristol needs this stadium

Bristol needs to go forward, not backward and shouldn't pander to minority groups.

The Rovers should be back in
Bristol where they belong and Sainsbury's will provide much needed jobs for it's people.

This is a fantastic opportunity for Bristol - lets not blow it!

This isn't just a footballing matter, it's a City wide matter. We can't let the silly NIMBY's win. Just like Ashton Vale with the hated Bristol City, it has proved Bristol has to many NIMBY's who don't want a modern city, so drive all business away to London, Cardiff or Birmingham.

Bristol needs the NIMBY's stopping....

This is a fantastic development for the city of Bristol, for both Gloucester road and the new Rovers ground. Sainsbury has designed the supermarket with the community in mind. Bristol needs to start moving with the times as this is a great city to live in but some people & organisations want to keep this city from moving forward. Its time to stand up & be counted for Bristol. Good luck to Rovers as this is also a great opportunity to link with the Uni with great transport facilities for all people who want to support rovers. Lets get Bristol on the right track for the future.

The green party should be ashamed of themselves. They had an legitimate & cheaper option to object earlier but chose this option which costs the tax payer more money.

We need new sports stadiums in Bristol...and supermarkets !!!!

It's time for Bristol to move forward: we need better facilities, stadiums, arena etc. Please don't allow the minority to dictate over the majority.

The UWE us perfect for the new Stadium, everything is in place already to meet where we want to be as a future city. Walkways, cycle routes, sustainable infrastructure, major bus interchange with national coach and train services and plenty of parking.

As the Capital City of the South West we must change our city and develop, without such progression we will be left behind by our friends in Cardiff, Swindon and Birmingham.

I lived in Horfield for 30 years, parents still there. Still watch the Gas. For goodness sake Bristol wake up and join the 21st Century!

The poeple who have called for this judicial review are in my opinion undermining the decision of a democratically elected council, and further more costing the bristol council taxpayers a great deal of money in these austere times.

For the advancement and benefit of all Bristolians

Let us have the chance for a new home. UTG.

Bristol neeeeeeeeeds this stadium.

although i am a Torquay Supporter. I fully support this petition as the Trash campaign as I have seen it being acted out is a spoiling tactic and does the area no good at all. The whole area will be affected by far more than a stadium in the years to come. The internet and peoples reluctance to walk along the street in years to come as it's becoming habit now for many to avoid the hard walking required will downgrade the shopping down Gloucester Road. Rents are ever increasing to a point where many will give up soon anyway.
It seems to me as if they have their heads in the sand

Most people, like me, living near the ground cannot wait for the chaos caused on match days (often on consecutive weekend days) to stop. The thoughts of a relegated Bristol City playing Rovers here is a nightmare. TRASH , however good their motives personally, have no alternative to offer. If Sainsburys falls through, there could be a re-hash of the original plans to redevelop the Memorial Ground, with possibly pop concerts etc to make it pay. Im sure TRASH would not like to see that. The independent shops are quite safe,and far enough away, and those shops near the Mem are largely cafes, Estate Agents etc.The area will be revived by the new plans. Be careful waht you wish for, TRASH!

good luck rovers hope u get abbeywood stadium

The parking on match days is awful around Horfield Common. Sainsbury having a car park will stop this and as it is for local shopping too, it will also be a great benefit to the local area.

Support for a new stadium for Bristol`s No. 1 team.

I've support the gas for 55years and it has never been more important to secure its future and the support of generations at UWE. Its petty and juvenile.

we need a good stadium in bristol to reflect our regional standing and aspirations.

Judicial review should not be able to be used when one simply disagrees with a decision, properly made, which balances all the issues concerned.

A judicial review is a costly delay to a scheme which provides a much needed new stadium and also some competition to existing supermarkets

It amazes me that a small minority can cause such a delay

i just don't agree with trash's opions.

There will always be nimbys and that's all what TRASHorfield are.Bristol Rovers will die if this project is stopped.MAKE THE UWE STADIUM HAPPEN people of Bristol.

I believe that Bristol needs a new stamium

This is ridiculous, a supermarket in the area will not detract from the great independent shops in the area. I cycle/run down Gloucester rd everyday and most of the shops sell things you'd never get in a supermarket, I will still use the bakery and butchers because of the quality. The supermarkets will simply take the same business from each other in reality. Supermarkets will not sell fast food or suddenly become pubs. Gloucester rd will always be a busy, vibrant place regardless of what happens here. In my area a large supermarket has been built and it's been positive for the area in terms of investment, affordable homes for people etc etc.

Come on, Trash! Bristol needs a new stadium - as do the Rovers!

good luck rovers

Bristol rovers are crying out for first class stadium and have been for years. I thank all the support we seem to be getting from brighton fans also

Ex local resident the area needs new life and this could stop out of town shopping and regenerate Gloucester rd and help local indie traders when people shopping want to have a wander. This happened to Street with the outlet village.

As a long term resident of Gloucester Road (2002-2012 - moved to current address in July 2012) I feel that the Sainsburys proposal is best for both local residents and Bristol Rovers and the TRASH campaign and call for judicial review are a complete waste of taxpayers money - they should be ashamed.

Although an "exiled gas" now resident in the Midlands,a new stadium with all the commercial and social benefits is just what North Bristol needs. Having supported Rovers since the halcyon 2nd Division days of Geoff Bradford, I along with many other Rovers fans will be so proud to buy tickets for the first game at the UWE,and hopefully emulate the likes of Cardiff City and Swansea City who we were playing not too long ago.

Bristol could do with a leg up - it's time Rovers were allowed to give the city a club with a ground to be proud of

Best wishes from Aston villa fan, bristol really needs this it has many good things but it is missing this like two front teeth

This is so important for the development of Bristol. Good luck to you all.

Rovers and Bristol deserve a decent stadium

Utg

Good luck to Rovers from Hull City

Trash are a disgrace...costing oir alrwady stretched economy more of our valuable money. Theu do not repesent my opinion and certainly do not represent the opionion of the majoriy of Bristol. Why is a small few aloud to disrupt a whole project that will benefit thousands!

This would be the best thing to happen to Gloucester Rd,

Good luck football fans have thing in common we all want what's best for our clubs #notohulltigers

Hull City fan in support

Good luck in getting this much needed Stadium

The benefits of this development are significant and should not be held to ransom by TRASH

(postcode given is my UK family postcode)

Very close to the ground and would benefit from the move all round, Bristol needs this!

It is about time Bristol as a major city in the UK moved forward both teams need new stadia as well as the city needing a new venue for concerts etc i am fed up of the minority ruining things for the majority of this great city of ours.

As a life long gashead it is a kick in the teeth that my tax contribution is going to help trash fight our need for a new stadium

Simply because Bristol needs this stadium to happen!!

We moved from Bristol because we were fed up with all new ideas being put down and objected to

I think TRASH's actions are totally undemocratic and harm the vast majority of Bristol's people and the future growth of this City.

This stadium has to go through. I work in the ASDA store on East St in Bedminster. East St still has numerous independent and small chain food outlets, butchers, green grocers, electronics stores, pet supplies, shoe shops... a thriving retail street... Why shouldn't the same thing happen with a Sainsbury's?

It is about time that Bristol Rovers had a decent stadium with world class facilities.

As planning permission has been given this farce of a Judicial Review should never had been
allowed. TRASH should now provide the funds to hold the Review.

It is ridiculous and wrong that groups can use public money to express their personal vendettas against developments. They most certainly do not represent the public and especially not me!

I think it's a disgrace that this group can act as they are and get a court hearing!! These type of groups is exactly the problem with our society and also seems to be the same problem with a majority of people in Bristol!!

Trashorfield have absolutely no idea what they are talking about

I used to live behind the memorial ground - the benefits a sainsburys would bring to the area are tremendous! Not to mention, helping the diabolical parking situation caused by the current stadium on the site.

#SupportBristolRovers #SupportUWE

I'm all for better sporting facilities in Bristol. TRASH are not only stalling progress of the stadium but for UWE too. They are wasting thousands, if not millions, of tax payer money.

The review is misguided and irrational.

I have been a Bristol Rovers supported virtually all my life and still go to watch them every year despite now living in Essex. It is critical that the sporting facilities of the city reflect Bristol's size and status and are available to complement the needs of ts local community by providing facilities commensurate with the 21st century.

Lets get this ground for Rovers!

Good Luck

Sporting institutions should be supported and encouraged to flourish.

brfc need a new stadium and horfield needs the new facilities which go with sainsburys. lets move forward and not stay in the dark ages

As a Bristolian and life long Rovers fan, it is imperative to the club and the city to have the investment in a new stadium which will benefit the whole area for generations to come.

Good luck from a Wimbledon fan

Massive investment in the local economy and future of BFRC

I like many other people fed up with small pressure groups holding up progress in our great city.

TRASH are a total disgrace if they are against this their are ways to voice that opinion. To prevent the city and its football team from growing and moving on out of spite is nasty and vindictive please support Bristol and its team in achieving what it needs to grow and prosper AFC Wimbledon fans and the club will always support other fans in their aim to grow and prosper!!

I believe that the parking that the development will provide will be to the benefit of traders at the upper end of Gloucester Road. I would also like a more accessible Sainsbury's than the current nearest main store on Whiteladies road.

Football grounds need to be preserved. Afc Wimbledon supporter

I am sick and tired of groups like this wasting tax payers money.
Good luck to Bristol Rovers

I used to assist the Liberals at election time by delivering leaflets, attending meetings, staffing polling stations etc. I was also a paid-up member of the party. Not any more.
I am disgusted by the actions of TRASH and of Dr. Willingham in supporting them. The building of the Sainsburys supermarket will re- vitalise a stagnant area of Horfield, Lockleaze & Bishopston and will only enhance the shops further down Glos. Rd. To claim otherwise is foolish in the extreme. This RJ is all about political dogma and grandstanding, with the intention of avoiding costs at the conclusion. Radice et al should hang their heads in shame.

Football is in the blood of many communities and is a form of social gathering it is a past time that people enjoy, it forges bond between generations alike for a new stadium not to be built on its original site it will not be the same for a footy fan to make that pilgrimage of its weekly ritual and become part of what has always been.Let a corporation build shops or anything else is just showing that the capitalist elite always get what they want capital gain and bugger the working class who are surplus to value, by allowing this Bristol will lose part of its identity and standing.

Toon Army supports common sense

Having had delay and delay with our own, Southend United redevelopment, I can fully sympathise in this case

Truly shocking, and at the taxpayers expense

What are these people like do they not want things to progress,we don't live in the dark age so move on or shut youselves away in a dark cupboard

Came across this on via the Dundee United facebook page. Seems very silly that a team looking to better itself and create jobs etc via a new superstore is being held back by stupidity.

Disgraceful. Dont stand in the way of progress. In brighton we know the benefits of a stadium. The joy and pride it brings to our city. Wish Bristol all the best with your campaign

As a Brighton fan, we all know what you are going through & how much it matters. Good luck & best wishes & I look forward to visiting your new stadium in the future!

Good luck

I have seen how the new community stadium at Brighton & hove albion has bought so much joy & pleasure to so many people . I urge you to support this application for a new stadium for bristol rovers

Really hope we can get this stadium built absolutely ashamed at the green party what a joke bristol is atm a city this size has nothing to offer just look at Cardiff.

Why do the group not want to talk to the football club about this. It is their ground.

Why is this group wasting money and time on this.

still come back to Bristol for matches. Mum and Dad still living in Filton

Up the gas!!!

As a Brighton & Hove Albion fan I have a sense of what you are going through. Our new community stadium has been brilliant for the city as a whole and I really hope you get what your city deserves - a fantastic new home. All the best.

A new stadium will generate massive employment and general interest in the city.

Don't let the greens spoil bristol a chance for decent facilities!!

I have visited Rovers various grounds and recognise there need for a new stadium.

This petition demonstrates the absurdity of our overly burdensome planning regime and aims to overturn the requirement for a public inquiry into the replacement for the Memorial Stadium with a Sainsbury's supermarket.

It is vital that this plan be allowed to proceed as this is the only chance Bristol Rovers, and the City of Bristol in general achieve a first class sporting arena for for purpose.

Community stadiums are far more important than party politics and nimbyisms.

It's about time we looked at the bigger picture and started to value sport in Bristol. There are mini supermarkets all around the country which businesses are able to compete with and the effects on the local trade of a new store is likely to affect just the major store such as tesco eastville which is not this ridiculous point. Youth and attraction to the city of bristol would bring a lot more income and help the city thrive rather than having this poor attitude to sporting developments which every other city in the country do not suffer from. We should be looking to help Bristol and the economy not dent it by costing millions of taxpayers money!!!!

This is what Bristol needs and deserves to have high level clubs in high level stadiums!

Good luck The Gas you deserve this UTA

We've been there we won sincerely hope YOU do. Keep fighting.

Having invited legitimate opinion, followed a course of consultation and inclusion about the planned future for the stadium site, it is unreasonable and disproportionate that a small group of people should refuse to recognise the outcome of this democratic process.

I agree why should a small minority cost the tax payers money and stop the growth of new Ares such as the money that could be brought into the new developments at Abbey wood no wonder we are still in a recession

Good Luck - MUFC fan

not another pointless supermarket save football and save the community!

As a Brighton fan we know the benefits that a new stadium will bring. The whole community will benefit with job creation and benefits for local businesses

As a Brighton supporter I know just how important a new stadium was/is to not just a football club but the whole community and surrounding area.

From an ex Bristol student and Brighton & Hove Albion supporter - we had a long fight to get the Amex. Bristol too deserves a new stadium.

Rovers need a new stadium the deal with Sainsburys is the most sensible solution. Concerns about the Gloucester Road are ill founded, it is mostly coffe bars, food outlets or charity shops, none of which will be affected by Sainsburys. The main independant shops deal in things that Sainsburys don't. The couple of butchers,green grocers and bakers will continue to be supported because if people shop there now they will undoubtly continue to do so. The Bishopston Green councillor is a well known opponent of supermarkets and large retailers as was evidenced by her attempt to have a large retailer tax and would oppose this deal as a matter of course. It is about time Bristol was given the chance to have facilities that other cities have had the good sense to put in place, such as good sporting facilities and of course an indoor arena
