Heard a major announcement to be issued in Feb .... with ABP & Dong Energy involved...not Freemo either.  Dont particularly hold out much credibility to it apart from i think the last word from the club when questioned about Freemo was that PP was off and they were looking at an alternative site that wasnt Freemo....which ties in with what i heard yesterday.


Brilliant, The Dong Stadium.

Regarding Freeman Street any idea who all these "Freemans of Grimsby" are?

Can't find any lists but I know Cleethorpes M.P. Martin Vicars recently joined along with a few others?

Apparently, they own all the land around that area.

QUOTE:
Who owns the land?

The land is owned by the Enrolled Freemen of Grimsby, who are the driving force behind the regeneration plan.

They were granted total ownership of a part-dilapidated section of Freeman Street following a High Court ruling in March 2018.

This section includes the former House of Holland down to Freeman Way, including the seven-storey Freeman House, which is former council offices.
UNQUOTE.

In Norway, a "Dong" is a nickname for a condom.

Very low profile body of people. Link below gives a bit of history - basically they were just that, free men who didn't owe allegiance to any lord unlike most people in the Middle Ages. In Grimsby they were the electors of the Corporation (i.e. the council) and two MPs of Grimsby before every adult had the vote and they claimed control of common (ie not in private ownership) pasture land around the town (hence Pasture Street) and including the East Marsh (hence Freeman St). They basically own the land everything is built on (not sure of the extent of it) just as Sidney Sussex College owned the land in north Cleethorpes.

The Freemen ( or Burgesses ) of Grimsby where formed in the 11 century and have ancient rights , including land ownership, in the town of Grimsby.
