New Community Stadium - Another Hurdle Cleared

21 March 2017

MEMBERS of North East Lincolnshire Council's regeneration, environment and housing scrutiny panel have dismissed a call-in on the Cabinet's initial decision to give the club's new community stadium developers, Extreme Leisure, a five-year option to buy council-owned land off of Peaks Parkway.

NELC had reached the decision last month, but the decision was called in for further scrutiny at a meeting last night. 

What happens now, director John Fenty explained: "We've now got to get a legal agreement between the council, the club and Extreme. That will probably take two to three months. In the meantime, there will be some work going on - that's never stopped. 

"It will now be to bring the parties together with the knowledge that we've now got a preferred location, which is Peaks Parkway, we've also got approval from cabinet."
