    That's fair enough. Enjoy 2022. What happens will happen so worrying about it isn't going to change anything.

    That's virtually what the local plan says though and that being stuck to has little to do with the developers from what I can see. It's for PCC to enforce what they've agreed and not buckle. LP30 is a bit vague though really so that would be a concern

    It will be in time but not even Flappy is that keen so 2022 will do for the time being.

    650 homes have already been written in to Policy LP36: East of England Showground so Panthers at their current location where technically no more when that was agreed. The latest article is just the developers wanting more houses etc although it's already been tried and dismissed was the point the councillor was making. The real issues for Peterborough Speedway are: "The loss of any existing leisure and sports facilities will not be supported unless replacement facilities are provided in accordance with policy LP30" which says: Existing Culture, Leisure, Tourism and Community Facilities The loss, via redevelopment, of an existing culture, leisure, tourism or community facility will only be permitted if it is demonstrated that: (and this is the bit where PCC & local councillor support will be crucial) k. The facility is demonstrably no longer fit for purpose and the site is not viable to be redeveloped for a new community facility; or l. The service provided by the facility is met by alternative provision that exists within reasonable proximity: what is deemed as reasonable proximity will depend on the nature of the facility and its associated catchment area; or m. The proposal includes the provision of a new facility of a similar nature and of a similar or greater size in a suitable on or off-site location. Timescale & actual work being the other issue: “We are hoping that development work will get under way in during 2023/2024.” As the club says in the ET today, it's business as usual for 2022, negotiations are and will be ongoing, we all know about timescales as well. Yes they may stick to it but these things can drag on and on.

    Swindon is a special kind of cock up and it was pretty clear where that would end up. We've had 20 years of this and the council and it's officials have generally been supportive over the years and we're still here. Yes it's getting tricky now but I think I’d rather have the support of a councillor who has consistently backed the club and lives less than 400 metres from the fourth bend, rather than not. As Ged Rathbone proved, who can you trust?

    20 years and ongoing but getting nearer to the end game. Nothing new in the story. There's a bit of sabre rattling before: " chief executive of AEPG, said it was hoped to submit two outline planning applications, plus a masterplan for the site, to Peterborough City Council in the spring. It's quite comical that in September they said that their masterplan would be in line with the PCC local plan then they come out with this guff that will be rejected as it was when the last cowboys tried it on. With the main impact still coming: “We are hoping that development work will get under way in during 2023/2024.” although there can still be many hurdles to cross.
  7. Helped of course by Johnson's incompetence and ability to weaken his own authority.

    European Union - In Or Out?

    That's an example of the elephant in the room that the remain camp wouldn't go anywhere near although they knew that it was the number one issue. Their campaign was based on the second third and fourth question but was rejected. So whose failure was it in reality?
  9. It's just the standard response to anything that doesn't sit comfortably in their echo chamber: look for any link between individuals, companies and any financial element (which isn't too difficult with this topic) before rubbishing the point and citing what you've found as concrete evidence of collusion.
  10. Well at least we've found out that it's not the one containing David and Gareth Icke. I think the majority will be happy to be on that side of the debate.
  11. It means little without the detail though. Doesn't just mean that they've been given a non specific pot of money to use as they see fit? Well you'd hope not. It's difficult these days not to find someone who'd say that any money would be better spent on ??? rather than what is was spent on.
  12. It takes some skill to reply with something nonsensical that agrees with what you're pointing out The important bit that you conveniently missed: which money specifically are we supposed to be following?
  13. Much like that reply then. So who is coordinating the end game that you mention?
  14. That's life though, somebody always makes money! It's just the usual nonsense reply. Which money should we be following specifically?
  15. End game of whom? I'm interested to know who's coordinating all of this and has managed to get the leaders around the world on board.
