It's an intereting point Our footie club tried for 5 years to build a football stadium on the outskirts of town in an established playing field area. Bang on the junction of a Motorway, with an Airport and Rail links only1/2 mile away. The railway and airport both having impressive parking facilities which are motly empty on a Saturday
Could they get planning permission, not on your Nelly. in the end they built it on the site of an old gas works Bang in the middle of town. very inconvenient every other Saturday. But at least it won't be too far for the Pompey fans to travel for the local derby next year.
