The move in general? Or more specifically on questions like the location and stadium design?
I'm a bit wary of public consultation on this really. I know you were against it, but despite significant fan opposition to the move, we had a poll of 25,000+ that returned a majority for a move to Kirkby. Beyond local heritage groups, there hasn't really been much opposition to Bramley Moore. A lot of the more outspoken Kirkby critics have been on board too. I'm not certain what we need to consult about location wise.
As for the stadium design itself? They've hired an architect to do that.
We all want a bit more transparency from the club, but I'm not entirely certain what kind of consultation you'd hope for and, more importantly, what would you actually want to achieve from it?
not public consultation unless legislation called for it, as with Kirby and the Inquiry. The location wasn't the main stumbling block there though, as we're all more than aware!
consulting stakeholders such as the Shareholders' Association, Fans' Forum, supporters' groups, at key stages of the design process could be helpful, however. maybe even meetings with the architect and those people to sit down and chat.
the club did a consultation with those groups over the imagery we see in the concourses at Goodison Park and it was pretty straight-forward to do and took the half time of the pre-season friendly. Obviously the stadium is more than that, but a few hour long meetings to touch base and swap thoughts on the process wouldn't do any harm at all.
We go to football matches to feel like we are a part of it. It hurts when we lose because we feel like we're a part of it, and we walk tall when we win 0-0 against Chelsea because we've felt like we're a part of it. That same mentality is rolled out to several other initiatives which are far less important than a stadium, I don't think it's out of order to wonder why it hasn't been included in stadium design at this point.
