Swindon Town chairman Andrew Fitton has told BBC Radio Swindon that he hopes the club will be playing in a new stadium by 2012.
The previous Swindon Town board were keen to move to Shaw Tip and built a sporting complex however residents ended those plans, stating the Council had told them the former tip would become a forest. The Forest Not Football campaigners won.
The previous regime then focused on redeveloping the current site at the County Ground however they wanted to put thousands of houses on the site which once again was met by opposition from residents.
New chaiman Andrew Fitton is more realistic and has now stated he will look at building a new stadium or redeveloping the County Ground by 2012.
Speaking to BBC Radio Swindon Fitton said, 'It would be good to do it (build a new stadium) for the Olympic year in 2012 which seems like a long way off but it's not.
'If we were moving off this site then 2012 would not be a bad target. If we stay at the County Ground then of course we may be able to move slightly faster.
'The big decision first is 'do we stay or do we go?' and that decision has not been made yet.' Fitton finished.
Trust STFC has already came up with some plans to redevelop the current County Ground site and the club may look at these in more details as the months go on.
Fitton and co. have already improved the stadium for the coming season by replacing all the broken seats with red ones and are currently looking at adding executive boxes to the ground.
