Stopped at Holme Pierrepont

Holme Pierrepont site had been rejected due to its position on a flood plain and due to the volume of local opposition!

FIELDS mounted an immediate opposition to the "Super" Stadium proposal with the placing of "FIFA STOP" and "Keep Our Fields Green" placards (with thanks to the West Bridgford Equestrian Centre for the use of their fences), and the circulation of an opposition letter to all houses in Lady Bay. Local residents support was overwhelming and we were delighted to learn early in September that the Holme Pierrepont site had been rejected due to its position on a flood plain and due to the volume of local opposition!

Unfortunately, the rejection of Holme Pierrepont as a site has simply moved the problem to a new site - Gamston. This new location, although not in Lady Bay, would still seriously affect local residents and the land we are trying to protect.

FIELDS are in contact with resident groups in Gamston and will assist in their opposition to this new Stadium. Up to date information will be available on this topic at the Lady Bay Community Association AGM on 21st October.
