23/01/2015 : Taff's Gloversblog : Back To The Future Part III
23 January 2015 : Back To The Future Part III
A pleasant Friday afternoon was spent in our latest Bedouin tent which had been decked out as an ice-cream parlour. Yeovil fans were invited to have a scoop of this and a scoop of that in any flavour that took their fancy. This of course was the start of the public consultation for the future development of Huish Park. Attractive explanation boards were on display around the tent tempting all those who looked to become excited about the goodies that were on offer.

David Bell, who is acting as the development consultant for the holding company that owns the acreage around the stadium was on hand to advise and explain the various aspects of the new development scheme. David says that he is a long time season ticket holder who first approached John Fry in about February 2014. He says that he had become concerned about the way the planning application for the supermarket was shaping up. He offered his, not inconsiderable experience as an ex-planning officer and now a consultant, to the owners. So while we were being told by Mr Fry that there was only a Plan A and the Council had to grant permission for the superstore, there was in fact an embryo Plan B developing.

Whilst this was a consultation afternoon it seems that some of the proposals are almost a done deal (planning permission apart). The first proposed development is a large retail outlet, of a size that could not be accommodated on any other site in Yeovil. It will of course be The Range owned by Mr Dawson, he of the failed supermarket bid. David Bell assures that Mr Dawson and his team are taking a back seat on the overall development but has agreed some sort of legal agreement for the purchase of the plot. David Bell said that the details were too sensitive to give any further detail. This would inject short term capital into the project.

This capital would then be spent, in full, on the first phase of improvements to Huish Park Stadium. The present home and away dressing rooms would be turned into community dressing rooms to serve those who hire the artificial pitch. The present shop and administration areas would be swept away and new home and away dressing rooms, fit for visiting Man Utd players, would be built. New administration offices would be built together with a state of the art ticketing facility.

Whilst much of the Huish Park developments are retail-based, this shows the club's plans for the stadium itself

When questioned about the lack of transparency between the holding company and YTFC and the possibility that money might not reach the later, Mr Bell assured the questioner that he had entered into an agreement with the Board that all funds would go towards upgrading the Stadium. He further sought to assure that there would be legal conditions inserted in any planning grant that funds raised from sales and leases would have to be spent on upgrading before another phase could begin.

Once phase one was completed other areas of the land would probably be leased out rather than sold and rents charged in order to give a continuing revenue into future years. Suggestions were on the display boards for a 60 bed hotel to be sited on the far side of the Screwfix Stand car park. Another suggestion was a Sports Injury Clinic, a small convenience store (donít mention a supermarket), a coffee shop and possible small retail units.

Once those were up and running there would be sufficient revenue to turn attentions to the Copse Road (sorry Radio Cabs) Stand. The plan would be to build a two storey structure at the back of the stand and extend its roof over the terracing. It was claimed that terracing would remain, despite a generally understood theory that any development would involve seating. This end would then be the new Home End. The new structure would house a supporters concourse on the ground floor complete with quick queues and TV screens.

Also the ground floor might contain a retail sports outlet that could be extended to take in the club shop. Upstairs a hall could be established. The idea being that when the time comes for away games to be shown live on big screens, several hundred fans could be accommodated , wined and dined, beer on tap. When questioned about the restrictive covenant regarding the extension of alcohol facilities Mr Bell said that the present refreshment marquee (the beer tent) would be swept away. He stated that the marquee had just been granted a five year extension, indicating that these new developments would not be coming any time soon.

Further little plans to upgrade the tea bars, re-position the floodlights along the tops of the side stands, extra bits of car parking, improved road entrance and exits and a new office for the Manager were thrown in for good measure.

On the question of a patch of land for alternative pitches which caused the club so much heartache during the supermarket application it seems it was under their nose all along. Mr Bell identified a patch of land near Lufton College which it seems he has secured for at least two football pitches, a possible cricket pitch, a picnic area and a jogging track/play area.

The plan in general is to make Huish Park a seven day a week facility. This of course was only consultation and there may have to be an amendment or ten before a planning application can be submitted. Mr Bell has been talking to the Council planning officers (which is certainly more progress than last time) and is hopeful to make an application in February or March 2015. He is also hopeful that a decision will be made by Autumn of the same year! He is believes that the Council will not take too much notice of the regulations governing out of town retail development because of the community benefits and thought that if it was called in by the Minister he in turn would say that this was a purely local issue and not of national importance.

There you have it, donít hold your breath!

I'm curious about GJ comment on the CS interview that 'the threat is the insufficient investment into the club'.....

Haven't a number of people offered investment and been turned down?

The last line is definitely my mantra on this too!

One thing that disappoints/almost annoys me is the fact that the current away terrace is so far down the line of priorities. I'm sure someone else could clarify for me with knowledge of such a development, but I seem to remember a figure of £250,000 being put on the cost of adding the final rows of terracing and a roof as per the Thatchers. Say this adds 500 to capacity, at £20 a ticket that's £10,000 per game that the stand sells out. In 25 matches, it's paid for.

Now, I know there would be other costs involved (such as stewarding for increased capacity etc.) and we're unlikely to see that end sell out more than twice this season (United, TBCUTR) but the Championship was the perfect opportunity to capitalise on increased away followings and more sell-outs. Why wasn't it done then?

Similarly, if it's not to be turned to seating when (IF) development does happen, then why does the proposal say capacity won't be increased? Surely the original stadium designs (when both ends were designed to look like the Thatchers does now) mean there are no hoops to jump through to increase that capacity.

Based on this season's crowds it's no longer such an important issue, but it could become one if we have another successful year. The original plans were for a brand new stand, and slowly any development of that kind has been pushed to the bottom of the list.

Public consultation is fine but have the planners been consulted or does Mr Fry still think he can bully his way through. Too many ego's involved and the most important ones are on the council so sorry Mr Fry learn to eat some humble pie.

Thank you Brendon. Impression is that once again the chief goal above anything else is to sell land to Dawson and to get it converted to retail status for him.

Mention of potential phases to provide rent is not concrete enough a proposal of the sort of plans they indeed should be considering and only serves to sway opinion in favour of a sale to Dawson.

Overall it seems a softly softly rehash of failed proposals and I can hear pleas of urgent necessity before they happen. If the Championship standard ground overhaul was the first phase priority it would make more sense.

The food store effort, for its futility and blinkered aspects and for how the club so bemusedly bludgeoned away at a no-hope route, is bound to linger in the memory, but I will try as best as I can to look at this new proposal on merit. The approach seems much better than before, but what detail there is only suggests that the lesson learned is not one of how to best strive for club needs but how to make adapted strategy to achieve what owners and co-developer want.

The line: "there would be legal conditions inserted in any planning grant that funds raised from sales and leases would have to be spent on upgrading before another phase could begin" would be a red flag if I was in the council.

Phase one is Dawson and The Range. Again. So apparently none of the following phases can happen without Dawson's development, and then if the club doesn't spend the money from that on the ground, none of the following ones will be allowed to happen either. So one scenario is Dawson gets his store, the club gets the cash, and nothing else happens. Sounds strangely like 12 months ago?

I now understand why John Fry has not continued to take my very expert/experienced free advice into the mix. It now appears that at the same time I was presenting my own Future development report to the board at Wigan last year, JF was already in bed with Mr Bell.

I have no issue with Mr Bell, but I offered JF my architect experience (free of charge) of working with SSDC and its associate agencies, on two major local projects.
I was the first one who got the board to see the futility of all and anything associated with CDL.
I even offered FOC to attend any meeting with the club and CDL, in any shape or form.
I have had all of my latest pleas to be involved ignored by JF which is simply rude.
Good to see a fresh face in the mix, although it appears to be very superficial as CDLs hand (claw) is there still

Looking at the proposals I see the same issues of contravention of basic Planning criteria irrespective of how softly it has been dressed up.

The true answer lies in a split site, as until YT realise that anything other than direct facilities must be tested on the many brownfield sites in town, there will be no Planning Permission

I dearly want to be proven wrong, but this looks to be potentially problematic to Planning as before, but with yet another tranche of consultant fees involved. The second avoidable tranche. As JF has gone from wining and dining me at Wigan to not even answering my emails, I can do no more.

It breaks my heart, but as a last resort I will ask Ciderspace to put my own Report into these messages, as they were given a confident nod of agreement by Planning last April before I tabled it to the board. I will ask Martin Baker how to get my Report on this stream, and any questions albeit academic now, willing to reply.

Weary of seeing the same old irrational approach... but glad to be one of the diehard 73 at PNE in the week!!

The home terrace extension and roof cost 350K in 2000 So I would expect the away terrace without a sports hall behind to cost 500K The mechanics of going a full season without an away terrace would be difficult.

I thought the land at the bottom of the Screwfix car park was owned by the Council and on a 99 year Lease to the club.

Reading what might be inferred between the lines of Ric Palister's very upbeat points, and as an architect of 40 years experience of dealing with Planning daily, the hotel for instance might sound great in principal, but there are two key tests. the first is why on HP site not brownfield, the second is justification of need
I truly want to embrace this far better scheme but....

Having viewed the new plans for developement at HP site, and asked questions of officials at the tent, I cannot see (a) how this will get past planning laws, (b) why this exercise is even happening. When the only improvement to the supporters facilitites will be the completion of the north terrace complete with roof to mirror the present home end.
Improving facilities surely should have included becoming an all seater stadium and increasing stadium capacity now, not when we return to championship. (might not have the money then, again!).
Of the plans themselves. A `range` type store on this site, in isolation surely even if they have a buyer for the land, contravines planning guidelines. Small retail outlets, no demand in this town. There are small units at AMP that have become just charity shop, and in Yeovil town centre many remain empty, there is no demand for such outlets. A 60 bed hotel, (missed the boat on this one), even if it could get planning permission, a new Premier Inn is about to open in town centre, taking up what ever extra demand for hotel spaces there may have been.
Moving the players changing rooms, so they can be converted to community changing facilitites for Astro turf users, seems waste of money exercise. Just build new changing facilities for astro turf pitch next to said pitch, on west side of pitch next to the old Globe cinema.A lot less inconvienance all the way round. Having an ex planning consultant on board has not helped the clubs thought processes on these plans!

I went to the consultation post the game on Saturday. I was told that the new development to the stadium would cost in the region of £4m. This was to be paid for out of the supposed £8m capital that they are expecting to gain from the sale of the land.
I cannot see the redevelopment costing £4m myself, although I don't have the knowledge base that northern glover has.
My question is where is the other £4m going to go?
I still firmly believe that Mr Fry and his cohorts will leave the club as soon as the land has been sold, with a nice fat pay cheque and we will be back at square one. This might seem cynical, but over the last few seasons where has the money gone that the club has made from it's increased revenues from promotions, because as sure as hell in hasn't been reinvested in either the club or the playing staff.

So who is going to benefit from all this then? Dawson, Fry, Hayward? Mr Johnson and team, the fans all seem way down the priority list, have do any feasibility studies for these proposals? Who would use a 60 bed hotel 7 nights a week, my son travels in his work and only stays in town hotels not one away from amenities. Mr Bell seems to like the expression "swept away" are they all getting carried away. By the time all this stuff comes to fruition we could be we could be back where Mr Fry keeps threatening. I am almost getting fed up with asking the question that every one else seems to be asking, what the hell has happened to the extra income from the last 3 seasons? Are we to believe with out that short, and unexpected, burst of success the club would by now have gone out of business and, sorry to been cynical but a certain gentleman enjoying his pension pot!!

I was wondering if Andrew aka Northern Glover, in his professional capacity may have any sort of idea how much the aborted planning application may have cost the club? Mr fry keeps bleating on about how hard up the club is but they keep missing opportunities to make some money, missing out on scarf sales by not ordering enough, and then ordering more after the event, the cheap jack lads, fair play to them, made a killing on match day, going round the local pubs and were in town during the week. The club spent out quite a few quid having a market stall type thing made, hardly been used, should have been the Quedam all week!
