Great!

Oh and can I point out that "an indignant source close to the club", is (imo) just another way of saying "a cowardly shithouse without the balls or conviction, to put his name to his opinions..."

I can see the board using this as a face-saver and pull out of DK before the Inquirey results.

"With regret.... blah blah, due to loss of the Bellefield monies we will no longer blah blah"

I imagine that there would be clauses in place to prevent Everton pulling out and if they did they would have to compensate Tesco and KMBC for their costs. i.e. not going to happen

With his rant on how DK won't be affected and we will find the money from "elsewhere." Who do you think will be sold, Arteta,Jags or maybe Lescott? :cry:

Everton FC to make new Bellefield training ground homes plan
Jun 27 2010 David Bartlett

EVERTON FC will make a second bid to build luxury homes on its former Bellefield training ground.

The club launched a public consultation exercise at the weekend with residents in West Derby about building 82 homes on the site - six more than last time round.

In 2008 Liverpool council blocked the club’s plans to develop the site after some 220 residents objected to the proposals.

They were mainly concerned about increased traffic, extra pressure on local schools, doctors and dentists, and the loss of open space.

The club appealed against the decision but the case was dismissed.

The inspector said there was nothing to suggest the plans would have a detrimental effect on the living conditions of residents by virtue of the increased traffic movements.

But she also examined the principle of residential development having regard to loss of green space, housing and land supply matters, and its effect on the Housing Market Renewal Initiative.

But the new coalition government has indicated it plans to rip up the Regional Spatial Strategy, which could give new hope to the football club.

Everton has switched from using David Wilson Homes for the development to Bellway Homes for the scheme.

Head of communications at Everton Ian Ross said: “We are committed to developing Bellefield and realising its value for the club. However we’ve been a neighbour in West Derby for many years and it’s important to us that we take on board the views of local people.

“Feedback from residents and local representatives will be taken into account before we finalise these plans and submit them for approval.”

A new website – www.bellefield.co.uk – has gone live so residents can see the latest updates and submit feedback. In 2007 Everton moved to its new training ground at Finch Farm in Halewood, freeing up the 8.9-acre Bellefield site for housing.

There is a second public meeting at 98 Sandfield Road, next to the Bellefield entrance, on Tuesday from 3pm to 8pm.

Note of Caution Over New Bellefield Proposal

Everton are looking at an agreement with Bellway Homes over a proposed future development on their former training ground at Bellefield, West Derby.

Quite understandably Everton are anxious to realise the value locked up in the land that has stood vacant since their departure to the highly acclaimed Finch Farm training facility and obviously all Evertonians will want to see the maximum value obtained from the sale so that it can be utilised on either a redeveloped Goodison or a new stadium in Speke, Fairfield or Croxteth; yet perhaps lessons from the past should be observed; this will be their fourth attempt at securing planning permission on the Bellefield site.

It will be remembered that in March 2008 Everton’s attempt to obtain planning permission for 74 family homes was thwarted when it generated substantial local opposition leading to local Lib Dem councillor Dave Irving speaking out against the application as did the then Labour opposition spokesperson on the planning committee Cllr Steve Munby. Whilst the city’s officers report was favourable to the clubs application, the planning committee, made up of elected officials, refused the application because, even though Everton had reduced the original amount of housing in response to residents concerns over fears it would increase traffic, they indicated it would not provide regeneration benefits.



Later that year, acting on expert advice, Everton mounted a legal challenge and even though the government inspector, Karen Ridge, found in favour of the appellants contention that the increase in traffic wasn’t grounds for refusal, she overall found against on the acceptability of the proposed residential development having regard to: (a) loss of green space, (b) housing land supply matters and (c) its effect on the Housing Market Renewal Initiative (HMRI).

Everton has, somewhat surprisingly, continued to promote their inability to deliver a suitable proposal as a city council inspired political decision against Destination Kirkby when the reality is over 220 local residents opposed the prospect of 74 dwellings being built and a planning inspector upheld the councils decision.

Everton are now proposing to increase the proposed number of dwellings; a move that will no doubt further anger and mobilise local residents; it appears that the club are counting on a revision of national planning policies surrounding the regional spatial strategy [RSS] and the housing market renewal initiative [HMRI].

With a unenviable record of accepting poor expert advice Everton clearly need to avoid any possibility of further delays to the delivery of a suitable plan that will yield the maximum amount of revenue for the good of the club, its supporters and the future stadium plans that need to be urgently implemented if the serious shortfall in stadium income at the club is to be addressed.
