Stadium Survey 'Taster' Results

At the home game against Plymouth on 29th March, the Supporters Trust distributed approximately 8,500 flyers about a fan consultation process in relation to the proposed new stadium.  The main aim of the flyer was to announce a forthcoming comprehensive survey that will give fans an opportunity to let the club know their likes and dislikes in terms of stadia design.  To set the ball rolling, the flyer also included five 'taster' questions.  Fans were able to respond to these by SMS text message or by dropping their completed flyers at collection points around the ground.

515 replies
By the time the SMS phone lines were closed at midnight on Wednesday 2nd April, we had received a total of 515 responses (a response rate of c. 6.4%).  255 of these were sent in by text and 260 by returning the flyer.

No comment
The results are shown below.  As the main survey will be going out this weekend (via an e-mail with a link for everyone with an e-mail address on the club's database and available in printed form for all others from the club shop) and we don't wish to influence how you might respond to that, we offer no comment at this point on these results. 

However, if you feel that your fellow fans are 'wrong' or 'misguided' on any of the issues covered by these questions and wish to urge them to answer any similar questions in the main survey in a different way, you may wish to make your case on the fans' forum, OTIB (ideally in the 'New stadium' sub-forum). 

The flyer questions and replies

Do you support the club's plans to build a new ground on a site adjacent to the David Lloyd tennis centre?

If you could choose the basic shape formed by the stands around the pitch, would it be oval or rectangular?

If you could specify how steep the stands should be, would you prefer them shallow like the East End or steep like the Dolman?

If allowed, would you like a small area - say 10% - of the ground designed for safe standing, or do you want it 100% seated?
