On Saturday July 19th Hadleys, the developers who have bought the freehold which DHFC sits on, exhibited their proposals. In summary these are:
- To build on the existing DHFC site &
- To relocate the DHFC football pitch to the artificial pitch on Greendale
The architects (Farrells) drawings show two options:
- To extend St Francis Park into the car park/car wash area and to use the whole of the existing club footprint for building.
- To connect Greendale Fields with St Francis Park by converting the existing roadway to the south of the pitch to a green corridor.
There were no plans for specific types of building development on show and the plans for Greendale were concentrated on building a perimeter for the new pitch. It seems that this will be the key area for consideration, in terms of its MOL status, allowable use and encroachment on the green space.
