I've been an administration councillor for 6 of the last 7 years, including being in a cabinet position. your assessment is not my understanding of the situation. The most recent reason, at the most recent committee that talked about it, for the Athletics Stadium not being an option is because a football pitch couldn't fit inside an athletics track. when I spoke to the lead officer about it, he said there'd been no conversations about Kingstonian and Athletics stadium. that was also backed up by the leader, and two former leaders. Conversations I've had since and before seemed positive, but all caveated by me not being a representative of the football club.

happy to do an FOI on it.

even if your assumption was true, we've recently had a senior Cllr tell us Lovelace was a goer despite having never seen the plot of land being talked about, and not having spoken to any local councillors on the issue. so clearly things CAN change.

all the other hurdles are no worse than at any other green belt field being talked about. I mean, there's not adequate changing facilities, perhaps, but elsewhere there's not even a building or running water.

I'm just here demanding harder, if you wanna ignore the funding we can get from GLA just cos it doesn't have the word "football" on the bank account that does the transfer, that seems mighty backward. I presume the disparaging comments on this, and elsewhere, are just yours and don't reflect the supporters club.

don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good.
