“The proposal”, the council say “is at a very early stage and councillors have asked that the feasibility of moving to a modern, purpose-built facility and disposing of the current site, potentially for much needed new housing, is explored.“
By selling the ageing site the council would most certainly cut their carbon footprint which is, so they say, driving in part, this proposal.
Now back in Oct 2018 we ran the blog
At the informal Cabinet meeting former Cllr Malcolm Dearden mooted the idea the site could become a site to develop a new civic centre. Now we are NOT saying that is going to happen. All we are saying is a possibility not a certainty.
But there are many other sites the council could consider, such as their newly owned racecourse.
If you hear anything about any potential site the council are considering do drop us a line. Any person who provides information to us can be assured they will not be named or compromised.
