The only parts of the ground that remained unchanged in 1986 were the club offices, the Bradford End and the Midland Road terrace as outlined in the plan below. Aside from the new stands, the provision of car parking represented a major development. However this capacity has subsequently been lost as a consequence of developments between 1999-2001 comprising the two-tier Kop, North-West corner and expanded main stand as well as the construction of new offices (now utilised by the One in a Million school).
