ClaretandHugh has today discovered that the proposed OS digital wrap remains under negotiation because of worries over how it might operate in daylight!
Initial planning permission was granted last month but one condition was to limit the light output to 33% output because of environmental issues..
Fans have been raising questions about the ‘wrap’ and whether it will be delivered after the chairman’s son Jack suggested last night it was in doubt during a Q and A session.
And today our most senior source told us: “Final planning permission has not been granted, it goes before the committee in 3-4 weeks and we can only do what council decide.
We know the committee are semi-split and the outcome is NOT a foregone conclusion. We VERY MUCH want the wrap, but not in its original format as it didn’t work in daylight. Some of the council like the existing steel structure wrapper that’s already there but we do not and we want a West Ham United wrap.”
At a recent Hammers fans’ forum supporters were also updated on the digital wrap when it was declared: “We are currently looking at modifications which will help ensure West Ham branding has primacy and the LLDC who resubmit the plans as custodians of the stadium”
