Note from the Chair – Re-development Update

We’re very conscious that we haven’t shared any real update about the re-development recently, but I just wanted to assure you there is, as ever, lots going on behind the scenes.

We have been looking (and costing) both an appeal against the decision and submitting an amended scheme whilst remaining financially viable for both ourselves and Greenacre.

A joint Team made up of Board members, expert advisers/friends of the club and Supporters Society Board members are working together under the leadership of FWP/David Robinson and Phil Tanner, and of course we still need to have a good ground and club facilities!

It isn’t easy, but we remain focussed and determined. We have had multiple “virtual” meetings, with council officers, advisers and Greenacre to keep moving things forwards. And despite the current exceptional circumstances we are making progress. Clearly nothing is certain yet, but we continue to try to achieve the vital re-development at Twerton Park that the Club needs to secure its long-term future in Twerton.

Thank you for your patience and understanding of the complex situation, made all the more challenging by the lockdown.  And stay safe and well.
