Planning Permission for Hospitality Box

Recommended Posts

I see the club have applied for planning permission to build a hospitality box at the rear of the main stand near the park suite end.

Seems a bit strange given the comments about how poorly the hospitality has been used over the last season or two.

Seems like a great way to spend money we don't have. Maybe they should focus on selling the product and making it beneficial to the club again before they start exploring routes like this.

When he took over, this is what Jim Mann said:

“The problem I’m trying to fix is, in order to invest in the team that way, I’ve got to find a way of bringing more money in.

“Of course, I’m absolutely of the view that the quality on the park will bring more people back to watch the games and that will bring more money in but how do I invest in the team to get the best on the park?

“That’s the problem the board has to try and solve, how do we get investment and how do we become attractive again to the local paying public?”

 

Is there any evidence, on any front, of the club having made an effort to increase turnover? Maybe he should resort to the "Give us your effing money" tactic, after all!

The past year has been a complete and utter clusterf**k: Locke and Sykes gone, most of Locke's signings flopping, The Killie Way a joke, "scaring visiting teams to death"? Treating them to a goal-fest, more like.

As piffer says, they need to work on attracting punters - corporate and otherwise - before building what may be another white elephant.

Will It ever happen though.....Wasn't there a big announcement last year by the Board and detailed plans put on show about a development behind the Moffat stand?.............not heard much about that since...

Bizarre. What's the point in a hospitality box when barely anyone goes to the hospitality anyway? A box is hardly going to make a difference.

Well...that sucks. Looks I'll lose my seat under these proposals.

Having experience the hospitality boxes at other grounds such as East End Park it is a significant improvement on the Park Suite followed by a cold seat in the stand, it would certainly make me more likely to consider it. We only know of the panning application not the financials. For all we know they may have a sponsorship deal where it costs the club nothing to build it. Servicing it is a different matter and I would expect, given recent developments, that the catering would go out to tender for the best/most profitable deal. That all sounds to much like common sense to be true though, I may need to lie down for a while.

Couple of things. 

1. I wonder why we didn't do it when the 'new' stands were going up.

B. We're going to give them an obstructed view of the game...or is the whole roof being redone to remove the pillars?

Would make me less likely to go, f**k watching a game behind glass.

You'd be aswell watching it downstairs on a TV.

As someone has already said, you are going to get a poor view of the pitch from that corner unless they are taking down the pillars in the stand.

Agree will Humper, one of the benefits in my opinion of RP hospitality was enjoying the proper match atmos.

Never fancied watching a game from behind glass seems pointless to me.

Do the bigger clubs not have boxes with outside seating for exactly this reason.

sitting out in the cold is not a negative for me, if it  is why are are you at a football match.

Looks like we'll be getting rid of 230 seats for the pleasure bringing our capacity down from 17,921 to 17,691. Still more than Tynecastle, but they've put in planning permission for a new main stand.

Ha! The little s**ts have used my model of Rugby Park for the internal mock up.

 

EDIT: And they've really f**ked up the pitch lines.

I would have installed such boxes on the top tier of The Moffat, we could still fill the bottom sections with Killie fans once we start winning again.

As mentioned this is only at the Planning stage, nothing set in stone here.

I think that would be the most logical place to put something like that. They wouldn't want to lose a couple of hundred seats they could sell to Old Firm fans though.

Hope they've asked permission.
