Community Stadium Developers Set For Formal Planning Application

EXTREME has now completed the early stage viability assessment of the Community Stadium project and are satisfied that it is a project they wish to progress to a formal planning application with.

Alistair Gosling Chairman at EXTREME said: “We were delighted to be invited to give an informal presentation to Councillors across all parties yesterday (Feb 7th)  where we were able to outline, discuss and answer questions  over  our vision  to provide a Community Stadium and the enabling developments within North East Lincolnshire.

“Members raised a number of issues with us, which we understand and which we will seek to address as we move forward; we felt it was a very positive and progressive discussion and hopefully will be the first steps in engaging with the wider community on our exciting plans.

“We now look forward to hopefully seeing the Council’s Cabinet report on the next steps later this month.’’

Town director, John Fenty added: “I’m delighted that Extreme have had an opportunity to communicate directly with Councillors, in a two-way communication during their presentation. This has enabled clarification of opportunities for a scheme that has huge potential, to not only deliver a New Community Stadium, but to include other leisure facilities and much needed affordable homes within the borough. A project of this nature to progress needs timely decisions in order to make the most of opportunities that currently present themselves”.

The current facility mix being considered includes the following, a state-of-the-art 14,000 capacity football stadium, a new ice rink facility, additional sports and leisure facilities, retail and food & beverage offers.

To ensure viability and the least cost impact to the local district, an enabling element of affordable residential has been included. These are now being viewed on a District wide basis.

The level of investment for the Stadium & Leisure Project and enabling developments are expected to be in excess of £250 million, with the number of full-time jobs created in excess of 600 full-time positions excluding construction based on the design and facility mix.

Targeting mainly large scale developments EXTREME partners with land owners, sports clubs, local authorities and leisure operators to deliver the initial concept, master planning, site acquisitions, planning approvals, financial structuring and long-term leisure lettings to unlock the full potential of each site and achieve long-term growth and value for all our stakeholders.

Slowly moving forward but I am sure we will get a few 'I want in on the Docks or East/West Marsh'

Peaks Parkway is the only show in Town, it either gets built there or not at all IMO

Exactly Pete, and I think that's what fenty means when he says "A project of this nature to progress needs timely decisions in order to make the most of opportunities that currently present themselves”

Looking at the pics, it's good to see the Architects have created a concave roof design, I doubt much sound at all will leak out of that, so the argument about a new stadium being too near housing, cemetary, and crematorium should be null and void.

As I don't live there any longer and only really get back for game days and a few times over the summer these threads are something that I have not got too involved in.

A new stadium is a must BP as much as it holds more good memories than bad personally is unsustainable in modern football. The way forward is to move into a new ground that forms part of a football hub/leisure complex etc.. etc.. Working with joint venture partners is the only way that this can be achieved as they have the expertise and investment capacity/access that we do not posses. I think the same as the poster above if it does not go into Peak Parkway then in won't possibly happen.  

What I would say though as I am now a visitor and someone who was brought up in the Freemo area if ever there was an area of a Town that would benefit from such a development it is Freemo and the space that sits behind it. Not just from the commercial and football point of view but also as a hub for constructive and positive community programmes etc.... etc... The club could form part of a regeneration legacy that they possibly would not achieve at Peak Parkway.

It appears that Peaks Parkway is the "only" option for the development but without adding fuel to the fire does this actually give the best benefit to the Town overall? Remember this is not just a football stadium it is a leisure development/hub or whatever you want to call it, I guess that remains to be seen.

What I would say though is regardless of where and if it eventually gets built pulling it off would be some massive feat by JF and the club. It is good to see that our clubs ambition extends to off the pitch as well as on it, if managed properly one can support the other without a doubt.  

UTM!

I know we need to move to a better, more modern ground but.. can I just say regarding this line from the article:

"The current facility mix being considered includes the following, a state-of-the-art 14,000 capacity football stadium, a new ice rink facility, additional sports and leisure facilities, retail and food & beverage offers."

Great - another generic, soulless, cookie-cutter clone of every other out-of-town entertainment complex as you might find up and down the country with the same chain restraurants and bars. Honestly I'd rather we stayed at Blundell Park. At least the ground has history and character.

My preferences would be as follows:

1) Stay at BP forever and nothing ever changes cos I am a sentimental old fool.
2) Redevelop BP incrementally (bit by bit for the thickos).
3) Knock BP down and rebuild it.
4) Build a new ground down Freemo.
5) Build a new ground near Sainsburys.
6) Build a new ground on the Pleasure Island site.
7) Build a new ground somewhere else "in town" be that GY or Cleethorpes.
8 ) Build a new ground at Peaks Parkway.
9) Build a new ground somewhere else in the middle of nowhere and have a pre match pint at Frankie and Bennys.

use some common sense, the club will die if it stays at BP, there is nothing to progress us as a club there
