Leader of Gravesham Borough Council, John Burden, said on Tuesday that a position had been identified in the area but could not yet confirm precise details.
He said: "We have a site available with great transport links and enough land to fill Mr Scally's aspirations to build houses and hotels as well as a stadium.
"We won't be able to disclose where it is for another few months as the information is commercially sensitive.
"A new stadium and facilities would be built in the next five years and would coincide with the opening of Ebbsfleet which could enable us to bring Olympic events down here.
"This is because Ebbsfleet will have a direct link to Stratford where the 2012 Olympic bid has been centered around.
But Mr Burden stressed that they would do nothing to jeopardise the future of Gravesend & Northfleet Football Club.
He said:"There is an opportunity for both clubs to work together to fulfil their potential and we would like to assist both clubs to do that.
"If Gillingham did not come to Gravesham, Gravesend could still use the site to construct a smaller stadium."
Gills chairman Paul Scally welcomed the positive response at a meeting to unveil the new plans for the £200million stadium last week.
(Later in the article.....)
The Gills chairman dismissed suggestions that this might erode Gravesend's support by giving the example of the successful Italian sides AC Milan and Inter Milan who share the San Siro Stadium.
Plans include a village complex with 1,000 new homes, a primary school, village green, Casino & hotel. The Fifa standard stadium (meaning capable of hosting internationals) plans include a retractable roof and a pitch that can be moved out so concerts and such like can be hosted.
First impressions? Impressive.....
.....but far too much for us. £200 million!!!!! Where would the money come from? Personally I think that's one reason why it won't happen anyway.
Elsewhere in the article Scally states Temple Marsh is their first choice location, then later states that he isn't convinced that Temple Marsh was a suitable place to build!
Nice comparison between Fleet/Gills & the two Milan sides - what a complete muppet you are Scally! (Just gloss everything up and it will look good, eh?)
