It seems that there were two companys in competion regards greyhound racing.

The Greyhound Racing Association which owned/leased Fullerton Park and The Greyhound Racing Company which I assume ran the track at the other side of the road.

The Greyhound Racing Company went into liquidation in Jan 1928.

I assume the GRA moved from Fullerton Park across the road sometime after that

Attached is a statement from GRA on 21st Nov 1927

Anyone got any ideas what is being built opposite the football ground on ER? Seen some construction on the land that used to be the greyhound track from the train the other day.

I wonder if it may have anything to do with the Leeds Valentine Fair that is being held at Elland Road from Feb 14.

with thanks to Leeds No1 on Skyscraper City

There are some better renders somewhere but cant find them.

Yes its the replacement for Millgarth (though its been virtually empty for years) and Holbeck.

The council is buying/bought the old station to develop a car park to try and get John Lewis fully onboard with the Eastgate project.

This is because Hammerson,who are doing the Eastgate develepment are now proposing splitting the development into 2 phases,phase 1 being the south of Eastgate and phase 2 being the north.

Problem is that the parking element is in phase 2,and John Lewis are not happy about opening in phase 1 without a carpark that can be reached under cover.

Hence the council buying Millgarth,which will be next to John Lewis,to make a carpark.

If they do then it would also be a good idea to have a covered walkway from the car park to the Playhouse.
Don't get me started!!

My brother and I were taken by my Father to Elland Road just after the War about 1947 and apart from National Service in the mid 1950s I have been more or less around the Stadium and I have never known the pitch being anything but the way it is . have I missed something ?,
