FC UNITED’s plans to build a stadium in Moston have a mixed reaction. Residents living near the planned 5,000 seater stadium near St Mary’s Road said it would provide extra sport facilities and take youngsters off the streets. Others objected as they feared their house prices would fall as a consequence of the building. The proposal has yet to receive planning permission. Confidential thinks it should go ahead and wonders why on earth residents think house prices will fall – surely they’ll rise as the amenity of the area is raised?
