I never said it was easy, just the most straight forward option to go with. If you want something sustainable this is the only way that would work.

Not only is the Athletics ground unsustainable in that we would be permanent tenants, but you are immediately cutting off in excess of £1 million of grants available to you. We would have no control, ownership, or ability to rent the facility out.

Of course it isn't easy, but the Athletics track is impossible. I run a club in Reading where we have junior football, senior futsal and are looking to expand to senior football. For this I have looked into the viability of building 3g pitches, sports halls, funding streams, pooling resources with other sports, converting commercial buildings for futsal etc. This Athletics track idea is just completely unworkable.

Also, why would getting planning permission at Chalky Lane be so much more unworkable than the Athletics track? It's an existing site and you would be able to give the community a new sporting facility it desperately needs.
