Public consultation gets underway for Hearts grandstand
Hearts football club have published the first artist’s impression of a planned main grandstand at Tynecastle stadium which would add 3,000 seats, upping maximum capacity to 20,000.

This dovetails with the launch of an eight week public consultation designed to keep fans abreast of developments as the stadium plan is developed further.

The column free design will include two big screens and entertainment suites with the three existing stands also given a makeover; including improved toilet and kiosk facilities.

Design work is being undertaken by James Clydesdale & Associates with a full planning application anticipated by close of the consultation period.

Indicative plans are currently on show within Tynecastle Stadium, with work expected to get underway by November for completion by the 2017/18 season.

The 3000 extra seats is added to the capacity of the existing stand, so the new stand will be 7500 capacity, not the 3000 quoted.

Nice. They should look to fill in the corners at some point as well. It's one of the best Scottish stadiums for atmosphere and filling the corners would amplify that. This is a much needed modernisation. Well done.

#2 from what I understand the big metal columns in the corners hold the whole stadium roof up (existing and proposed)...maybe not best to remove these for a few extra seats!
