Reading an article on the adver site, it suggests the council have to wait for government approval before selling the County Ground:

He told Robert Jenrick: “We are ready and waiting to help the government and our local businesses realise our ambition for improving Swindon but in order to proceed, we would be grateful for two actions from you: An early decision in July on Swindon's Future High Streets fund bid and fast-tracked approach to agreeing a Swindon Town Deal by October 2020.”

That is dreadfully worded, not sure why government would have to give approval for the disposal of e Council owned asset, I wonder whether its just another regeneration funding bid, nothing to do with the club?

Sorry, maybe I've missed something but as far as I can see that article makes absolutely no mention whatsoever of the County Ground or STFC? Maybe it originally did when you first posted and has been edited since?

As noted its dreadfully written, I think the bit being referred to is "we would be grateful for two actions from you: An early decision in July on Swindon's Future High Streets fund bid and fast-tracked approach to agreeing a Swindon Town Deal by October 2020.”

Now the Swindon Town bit seems to be a hyperlink although I suspect that's more to do with their software automatically tagging certain preordained words rather than any link to the club.

I think it refers to this:

Not with STFC

Oh I see, yes clearly nothing to do with the club. The whole piece is about town centre regeneration

I obviously wrongly assumed Swindon Town deal meant they was asking for government approval to see the county ground, obviously poorly written
