  1. Stadium Lighting (Merged)

    Hi Robbo! As per my email this evening to you, I was indeed there. E33 row 18 for half and hour up to kick off with my AV colleague. Stood on the steps. I agree that the recorded content isn't clear. We've got a few solutions lined up, we don't believe it's the PA but an issue with the transformation of sound through the Recordings. Update further soon

    @Phileas Fogg I have no idea regarding the SAG I can only suggest you get in touch via the Council help desk or send me an email requesting it and I can forward it I suggest for further dialogue, come along to the next FAN meeting and raise it again or if you would all 3 collectively like to meet myself and Dave Storr then make contact and we can explain face to face

    The Club has positive debates with the SAG on regular basis and will consider advice on a matter of risk. I am the director personally liable for the general safety certificate so will follow judgement and council from the experts on my team. The SAG can be contacted through Bristol Council.

    Ok, with the greatest respect this question has been answered many times, both on this forum, the FAN meeting and the SC&T, please let me clarify one final time. The stadium had an operational review when it was fully open by a number of core SAG members, (fire, EHO, police) It was an evening game inspection It was felt at this inspection that the lights being off created secondary issues with regards to safety. This was reviewed internally by our safety team that is led by Dave Storr and agreed. We are however, and based on feedback looking at creative ways of reducing the glare whilst still retaining enough light to cover risk. To give you context, Dave is an internationally well respected safety officer (Olympics, Baccu, common wealth games, ex fire arms officer) who since joining Ashton Gate has successfully implemented changes and challenged previous myths around safety that just happen behind the scenes. He is somebody that will always work on behalf of the Club and fans first without compromising safety. I hope that this finally clears this up. Mark
  9. Seat Numbers on Signage

    Interesting to read the very mixed replies, I appreciate the debate and feedback but there is no current plan to do this. We do an annual review at the end of each season and after 2 seasons in the new development and 2 million visitors, it's not something that is felt necessary. The key is a well trained steward who is there to help and that's the focus for the time being.

    As per previous answer, the LED's will be reduced from 50% glare to around 30% The internal lights need to remain on (as per many stadiums these days) but I'm looking at reducing the amount of glare based on feedback
  11. Dolman PA (Merged)

    Thanks. Yes please, we did the same again today
  12. Dolman PA (Merged)

    You're absolutely right: The PA has been fixed so the issue is clarity from the 1. Speaker or 2. Pre recording. This is where we are trying to resolve

    Hi This was discussed in detail at the FAN. Due to the nature of the new stands, the rake, the need for CCTV in key areas and just general safety, the lightening needs to remain on. Due to the feedback, there is a plan to reduce the amount of lights and hence the glare but this is work in progress.

    Same 50% brightness but I agree, they felt brighter

    Hi no, sadly this won't be changing Mark
