That reads as though he just hasn't got any money to fund it with the club no longer doing so, but as you go on to say it doesn't really explain why he doesn't just flip it over to a developer.

That's the bit I don't understand either. Surely he starts an auction with a load of interested developers, make a whack of cash and gets the hell out of dodge. Perhaps he might after the football training part is clearly nowhere near a start to being approved.

I am not sure that is a legitimate planning reason for refusal.  Wink

He can do what he likes, albeit the site has no planning permission (apart from as a golf course) so if he were to sell it to Clem or whoever the price would reflect this.

The whole thing is just plain odd in many ways, both applications were granted at planning committee subject to agreement of s.106 docs relating to travel plans and infrastructure (both applications) and affordable housing provision (the housing one).

In both cases the Council have noted in refusing the applications on 30/11/21:

'Despite numerous attempts to liaise with the applicant’s legal advisor the Council’s Solicitor has been unable to make satisfactory progress with the drafting of the S106 Agreement and it is concluded that there is no serious intention by the applicant to progress this application. No further extension of time for determination of the application has been agreed. Therefore it is recommended that the application be refused under delegated powers...'

Now I can understand allowing the training ground one to lapse as without a tenant that was a white elephant, however the housing one would be very advantageous to the land value and thus I don't understand why that one was not progressed and the s.106 sorted as Power could then have just flipped the site with PP to a developer with a considerably higher land value.

All I can assume (and I have neither time nor inclination to read all the paperwork) is that the s.106's were going to seek to tie the two consents together in some way meaning that the houses could not be built unless the training ground was, not sure how that could be done legally but there must be some reason why they have walked away from the returns being offered by the houses scheme.

What stood out for me was the non contact with PL legal team… It makes me wonder if there is an ongoing legal issue  between the club PL and or naturally his legal team about ownership of the site and or where the money came from to purchase it? IIRC, didn't the title deeds pass onto PL’s son? Again, there would be questions to ask as to why that would be? Well we can guess but that ties in to the actual purchase and funding legitimacy in the first place. There were matters that the club have hinted at they couldn’t and wouldn’t reveal as they went along, maybe this is one one them?

From recollection the certificates associated with the planning application forms as originally submitted suggested the land was owned by STFC, but later changed to L Power. Simple way to find out would be a Land Registry search if somebody wanted to pay the £15.

Yep, and that has been implemented I think.

The Highworth site is registered to one Lee Michael Power who paid the princely sum of £1,300,000 for it.

Whether that was with his own money or not...

Oooooo, well, now then, now then, now then ladies and gentlemen what do we have here? So we could be looking at the source of the funding for said training ground after all? Also the subject of an upcoming court case or at least an aspect of it?

All of this plus the business history and the schoolboy error of opening the door for Clem would indicate that LP is maybe bordering on incompetent at his chosen post pro football career and would hint at the main priority being to make a "quick buck" via the line of least resistance.

Maybe a reevaluation of goals and priorities is now required.

I imagine this relates to the episode when the charming cockney chappie referred to the Rochdale Supporters Trust in homophobic terms.
