Town Vs Council

By: Tony Hamilton
Date: 10/01/2003

In the next few weeks Grimsby Town Football Club and North East Lincolnshire Council will lock horns with the new stadium development in mind.

In the last two years since this scheme was unveiled The Council have been a stumbling block that with the tide of time has seen the Stadium development grind to a standstill.

Now on January 13,the Club and the Council meet to discuss to see if the Council will grant the new Stadium (when its built) community asset status, and it will be quite interesting to see what help (if any) it will offer to the Club. It would be quite a coup if the Council surprised us and backed the Club.

If you look across the Humber you can see how our near neighbours have been helped. On the17th January the whole Stadium matter comes before the full council and it'll have the final say in the Stadium's planning application. If, as expected, the plans go the Clubs way, then the developer needs to go and dangle a carrot in front of prospective retail businesses that he needs to get the project off the ground.

We all know that with the Council's past history in this matter, nothing is sealed until the Council give the Stadium the final say so, but they have no option now but to grant the application and also, one hopes, helps the Club in its aim to have the new Conoco Stadium built Great Coates.

Gerald Knight head of Chiltern Developments has got to sell retail space to finance his part of this scheme, but because of the long drawn out way this has been dealt with, the developer has missed out on some big names that have built on other plots around Grimsby, so after all these loose ends have been tied up by the various agencies, hopefully we'll have a new stadium in the near future.
