Not trying to put a damper on things but there was a lot of talk about putting conditions on the approval, one of which was a 106 which precludes developement on the rest of the site. (We are only using 20% of the overall site). How the owner will feel about things now is debatable. Whilst it allows us to go ahead, it will prevent him from developing the rest which I'm sure was in his mind when he first offered the land. Brilliant news all the same. The councillors were unanimous in granting approval and many of them spoke passionately about the need for a home for PTFC.
This season i have really got into following Poole town but have been at uni so only started going to games over my easter break. Went to the meeting today, was disappointed half way through because it looked like it was going against us, but the councillors were great in finally supporting the club. Poole Town are becoming my no.1 team
As a Bournemouth supporter that sent in a letter of support I am really pleased for all of you. At AFCB we have had some dark days but the supporters have kept going, you also have kept the faith and kept working to achieve the dream. I look forward to the day when I can come down to your new ground. Good luck for the future, you deserve it.
well done to everyone involved at the club at one stage during meeting didnt think it was going to happen but really great news and it was nice to see the two people who were in the objection seats were at tatnam last night hope they enjoyed there evening
