These plans are the first part of the re-development, with plans for the West Stand to be submitted in due course. The East Stand will be transformed, and will include some superb conferencing facilities, executive boxes and more and improved seating for supporters.
This will help secure the club's future, making the club self sufficient with an infrastructure to help push us up the Football League, bringing positive coverage for the town, and bigger attendances attracting more people to the area. The stand and facilities will be a proud part of the town's Enterprise Zone.
Northampton Town Football Club are close to submitting plans to build a new stand at their Sixfields Stadium.
The development, which would see a renovated East Stand, would increase the capacity to 10,000.
The expansion is the first stage of a £12million redevelopment of the area, put together by the club and Northampton Borough Council.
Bosses at Northampton Town have spoken of their "surprise" at a decision by the board of Arena Coventry Ltd (ACL) to withdraw a pending lawsuit - and demanded compensation for legal fees.
ACL announced in July it would be suing the club for effectively 'stealing' their customer, Coventry City.
A statement released by The Cobblers reveals the news that ACL were to withdraw their legal action was released before lawyers had even told the club.
As well as demanding their legal fees be covered, bosses said they also expected an apology.
We were surprised to read the latest press release from ACL's PR consultants. To our knowledge, ACL have not withdrawn their action though they are fully aware that we intend to ask the court to strike it out as an abuse of process.We defended ourselves robustly as it was clear from the very beginning that this action had no legal merit nor factual basis.
– Northampton Town Football Club
ACL appear to have belatedly realised that there is no basis for this action.However, ACL's aggressive and bullying tactics have meant that NTFC has had to incur substantial legal fees as well as waste a good deal of management time. If ACL really does want to withdraw its action, we expect to be fully compensated for these costs.
We would also expect ACL to apologise to the club and its supporters for seeking to intimidate us in this way.
The Ricoh Arena is no longer suing Northampton Town for ground-sharing with Coventry City.
In July, stadium bosses announced they were planning legal action against The Cobblers for effectively 'stealing' their customer.
The Sky Blues currently play at the Sixfields Stadium in Northampton and have signed a deal to stay there for at least three years.
This evening the Ricoh has confirmed it has dropped the claim 'so as to avoid any further distress to [Northampton] fans and to help clarify the position for long suffering Sky Blues supporters.'
– Statement from the board of Arena Coventry Limited
"We still believe our action against Northampton Town Football Club has strong legal merit.
"In light however of the Football League's decision to award the Golden Share to Otium Entertainment and the recent public statement made by Joy Seppala... it has become clear that even successful legal action will not bring the Club home from Northampton.
"We await Otium's best offer to return but to date we have heard nothing from them.
"Our focus remains on running our successful business."
Ricoh Arena bosses have launched a last-ditch legal challenge against the Football League, to try and stop Coventry City moving to Northampton Town.
The stadium has complained to the 'Football Disciplinary Commission', claiming the League acted unfairly when it gave the go-ahead for the Sky Blues to use the Sixfields Stadium for its home matches for at least the next three years.
It comes ahead of a crucial debt meeting tomorrow morning, which could see the club go into liquidation and suffer a minimum 15 points deduction.

The 26-year-old made his professional debut for Blackpool, and has also appeared for Scunthorpe United, Carlisle United and Chesterfield on loan, and Torquay United.
However, Ian Morris won't be lining up alongside Luke Guttridge and Ben Harding at Sixfields next season. They've both decided to move on after rejecting new deals with the club.
Northampton Town has signed Bradford City goalkeeper Matt Duke on a two year contract.
Duke played in the Premier League in a seven year stay at Hull City earlier in his career before a switch to Bradford City in August 2011. During his two years at Bradford, Duke played 52 games.
"Matt was always our number one keeping target this summer and I am delighted we have got him," said Northampton Town boss Aidy Boothroyd.
"We have done well to get Matt. We wanted an experienced keeper and Matt fits the bill perfectly."
