    I think the Schroeck meister has a plan.

    You can add Wiltshire to that but I still don’t think it’ll add up to a million

    Poole 2024

    Very odd considering the amount of rain against the brummies and that went ahead as you’ll be able to watch on YouTube tonight for those who are interested . Maybe lbw could let you know about the weather and the whereabouts of the Oxford Poole thread.

    The point here is that Osbourne owns /owned that land he never did at Reading,Torquay,Poole.The local council never cared about opposing any of his plans. Since around 2008 they just rubber stamped the sale and subsequent development each and every parcel of land he released and of course no new Stadium ever materialised.When they eventually awoke in 2019 they passed plans that would see the new stadium built but due to the poorly worded s106 conditions he is still in the driving seat showing the inept local council for what it is. Oxford councillors and Rugby councillors showed how it should be done against these chancers and of course well organised protest groups something that has always been missing from Swindon

    You give him too much credit, he got lucky and came up against SBC who allowed him to hoodwink them over and over again if had been someone like Oxford or rugby council he may have come unstuck.

    I think it means that Osbourne is trying his usual tactic to get the council to rubber stamp retrospectively his failure to comply with the s106 milestones so far with the new stadium buildings and painted containers for kennels and pits. It all rests with a new administration in charge at SBC to stand firm and insist he completes them as originally intended and more importantly completes the remaining site to original specs. This is why it’s important for anyone who cares to submit an objection on the sbc portal

    Here is the statement The owners of the Blunsdon venue have been quiet since April last year, but broke their silence to provide a statement offering 'clarification' during an extraordinary meeting held by St Andrews Parish Council, prompted by the latest planning application. The statement, spanning two A4 pages, said: "We wish to be absolutely clear that the request currently under consideration by the council does not seek to remove the planning conditions which mandate the completion of the stadium complex. "We understand the council's planning portal refers to the "deletion of speedway and greyhound racing requirements* - however, and importantly. our request seeks to remove the existing covenant that requires 'continuous operation of speedway and greyhound racing throughout the period of the milestones'. "This request is made because it is no longer relevant given that speedway racing ceased at the site several years ago." It is reiterated that Gaming International is asking for an updated milestone programme, deletion of the ultimate longstop, deletion of the speedway and greyhound racing covenant, and an updated land ownership position. It adds: "The Deed of Variation request ultimately serves to update the current project timeline, update the details of the site owner, and reflect the fact that • motorsports racing has now permanently ended at the site. The statement then says that the borough council granting this changes will allow them to move forward with the next steps of the new stadium build. "A revised S106 agreement will, in fact, ensure the delivery and implementation of milestones 11 to 15 and secure a pathway to the sustainable regeneration of the site. This includes finishing the acoustic fencing, demolishing the old site, adding a new car park, landscaping and handing over a new youth training facility. "We understand the widespread interest in the future of the site and regret any confusion around the purpose of the Deed of Variation request," it adds. The extraordinary meeting concluded with St Andrews Parish Council choosing to oppose the planning application.

    Last call for fans from all clubs to show Osborne and co for what they are by leaving a comment before it’s too late. https://uk.sports.yahoo.com/news/plan-drop-speedway-requirement-stadium-150000718.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvLnVrLw&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAM0RR8Y7pBcg_MaN2IQ8dILpih11hLIwpifMhrDw6YrRzQznA0dT0ed1DosOaWoUIj01prDa9QI2X7tPIcV5nJAQ1KFUCsz2AAQ1zqW0vmBFd9ylkSgdk6WoMp2MMMu7Q7OwuL43g4KAzkPyCNyS2PCdYvhiRUrCA0wgOJWPRqcn
  13. Spot on, it’s definitely working!
  14. Did you enjoy those visits? Quite simply an exciting and entertaining team a good surface and an enthusiastic crowd (made up of all ages). I personally am not a fan of gimmicks give fans a place to stand, get food and a drink, it’s the racing experience first and foremost. Having witnessed plenty of dross over the years it was fantastic to have speedway back at Sandy lane an opinion shared by many others who bring along the next generation of young fans encouraged by Oxfords admission policy.This season we have the chance to see some of the top riders again on our circuit, watch speedway almost every week . It doesn’t get much better than that.
  15. Usual old chestnut about admission charges, Everything else has gone up but for some people speedway promoters are expected to somehow absorb their increased costs.
