I would presume that any safety issues with the North Stand have been rectified as the OEC would want to open their own facilities no match days when the season resumes.

 

The club pay rent to Brassbank for the whole of the ground. They don't pay extra for the North Stand. The only reason not to open the stand would be for them to make "political points" against the OEC and doing so pee off the fans again! 


Seriously Emcee, what makes you think that the previous safety issues have been rectified

Frustrating as it may be, it probably is a big ask.  There will be numerous other priorities for the one (yes one) person who hasn’t been furloughed and is still working.  Particularly as nobody currently knows when spectators will be allowed into football grounds again and so this will be way down the to-do-list.  
 

The chances are that some form of social distancing will be required when they re-open so presumably all clubs will have to go through the whole Safety Certification process again in conjunction with the Authorities but this time, for all four stands?  It’s far from simple.


Your two differing views, which of course youre entitled to, just make my point.

 

We simply have not been updated

A local council doesn't shut down a stand at its local football club for a minor safety breach

 

Don't you think as supporters we should be advised:

 

  • What were the safety breaches that the council deemed it so unsafe for supporters, that they instructed, it could not be used on match days
  • Have those safety breaches been removed
  • Who was responsible for undertaking the improvement works
  • Can the improvement works be evidenced as completed
  • What systems have been put in place to prevent any future safety breaches

As customers of the club, I don't think its too much to ask that the club publishes the 'paper trail' answering these simple questions and additionally the necessary certification from the Council Safety Authorities that supporters safety in the North Stand can be assured

 

When the safety of our supporters is at risk, we need to see the documented evidence to satisfy our collective concerns

 

Whilst of course I fully appreciate the challenging times we are in, when it is practical to do so, the club need to evidence that the safety of our supporters is assured

tGWB. It is in the interest of the OEC to rectify the problems as they are losing a potential income stream. There was no major work required to put things right. If they rectify the issues at least they can point the finger at Lemsmagen when the stand does not open.

In March they said work had been carried out and season tickets for 20/21 were being sold.


We’re back in the land of “it wasnt us, it was them” and  hearsay that the safety breaches that forced the council to close the North Stand to supporters on match days have been resolved 

 

Its a simple but important step to remove any doubt regarding the safety of our supporters 

 

1. Publish the Council Safety Audit listing the safety discrepancies in the North Stand

 

2. Publish the Council Safety Audit which ‘signs off’ the safety discrepancies as ‘works completed’ in the North Stand

 

I cannot stress enough that a local council doesnt enforce the closure of a stand at its local football club for a minor discrepancy

Much like the thorough investigation into the financial irregularities surrounding the stand ownership that came to nothing you suspect the club will want to move on quietly from this.

You may well be right deyres

 

Supporter Safety should be a high priority for Trust Oldham but to the best of my knowledge I dont recall a demand from them to the club to fully explain the safety breaches that forced the council to close the stand on match days 

 

Maybe its something ‘Push the Boundary’ could take up with the club on our behalf.

Seems like a very reasonable request.

 

Maybe now they are not arguing about burger vans they might find the time.
