A new site for Worcester City Football Club is increasingly becoming a source of friction between two councils in Worcester.

The city council has allocated £100,000 to investigate whether a site off Parsonage Way in Warndon Villages would be suitable to house Worcester City who have had to play at Kidderminster Harriers’ ground and then Bromsgrove Sporting’s for the last four seasons.

The plan has the enthusiastic backing of the football club, but members of Warndon Parish Council are getting more frustrated by what they say it’s a lack of clear communication from the Guildhall, although the city council says it has answered their questions.

Councillor Ray Morris, chairman of the parish council told its meeting that he had attended the Policy and Resources Committee meeting of the higher authority with a list of questions about the possible development and told the parish councillors: “I didn’t get a satisfactory answer. They just answered what they thought I was asking, or what they wanted me to be asking rather than what I was asking.”

Cllr Morris’s colleagues were equally disgruntled. Councillor Andy Taylor said: “We go with specific questions and just get vague generalities as answers. We need to keep pressing the council.”

Another councillor, Cllr Dave Long said: “We are just not being listened to. That’s becoming more and more common with the city council.

But Worcester City Council insists that it has answered the questions put to it.

A spokesperson said: “We have answered all of the questions which Warndon Parish Council has put to us with regard to Parsonage Way as fully as possible.”

Worcester News has also contacted Worcester City Football Club but nobody was available to comment.

The club sold its St George’s Lane ground to a housing developer in 2013, but was unable to use the money raised to build a new stadium in Nunnery Way.

A plan put forward by the Worcester City Supporters’ Trust to build a new multi-use sports ground at Perdiswell Sports Centre, which would have included a small stadium, an all-weather flood-lit pitch and a swimming pool was turned down by the city council’s planning committee.

The club’s supporters’ trust has appealed against that decision to the Planning Inspector.
