A quick update and to clarify some information in relation to the training complex and the information published yesterday by the No Kingsford group.
First, the club have NOT started the development, the work being carried out is the erection of security fencing around the perimeter of the site to make it secure and to comply with Health and Safety to enable a site start once the club have cleared the suspensive planning conditions for Phase 1.
The Planning Department have been on-site to inspect the works that are being carried out and are in agreement that what has been done does not constitute a site start therefore no ‘notice of initiation of development’ is required at this point.
The club will issue the notice once the planning conditions have been cleared and they are ready to start the earthworks proper.
The training facilities are still on schedule to be completed by June/July 2019 and the earliest possible stadium completion would be for the 2021/22 season.
