Public to have their say on City supporters trust’s stadium plan

WORCESTER City Supporters’ Trust will put their scheme for a new football stadium at Perdiswell to the public before submitting them to Worcester City Council.

The organisation last month revealed plans to construct a ground next to the leisure centre in Bilford Road by the end of 2015 because they don’t believe the Blue Square Bet North club’s proposed relocation to Nunnery Way will ever happen.

Worcester City FC have a contract with developer St Modwen to build on the land next to the M5 until 2017.

The Trust had hoped to submit their plans for the community facility, likely to cost around £2million, to Worcester City Council this month but are still making revisions following discussions with the local authority.

Keen to ensure no mistakes are made, they will instead call a public meeting in the near future to canvass opinion.

Trust spokesman Rob Crean said: “The plans are being revised but in the meantime the supporters’ trust is looking to do some form of public consultation to outline what the plans are and to seek feedback.

“It’s a one-off deal and we need to make sure it’s correct. We are dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.”

while i love wcfc and go to home matches regulary i am concerned that the perdiswell golf club will suffer i am a member of the gc and so are my family and there so much talk of a swimmng pool and the football that the golf seems to be down in the ideas of the council, the gc provides a substational revenue to the perdiswell centre and is need of a clubhouse driving range facillitys and a fulltime green keeper , the course has a massive potentional and because of the lack of intrest shown in the course we are not getting any intake of juniors at the club which is very sad indeed because the younger generation are needed to boost the clubs next generation, i myself am 23 years of age and have been playing since i was 13 and have been a member at perdiswell for 7 years altogether, but the council need to have a plan for the golf course to in my opinion so aswell as the swimming pool i fee the other amenities and sports that are in regular use at perdiswell deserve to be credited with funding or a lottery grant to develop existing land ie perdiswell golf course.
