Yeovil Town Football Club have today distributed leaflets to households living in the area around Huish Park. The two-sided colour leaflet invites local residents to the club's series of exhibition days at the end of November to discuss plans for a new Food Store to be built on Huish Park land.
The leaflet is reproduced below, and can also be downloaded in both JPG and PDF format in larger high-quality form. Whilst some of the content in the leaflet is already public through Tuesday's news item there are some additional facts that can be deduced from what has been sent out.
Firstly it would appear that the Food Store will occupy roughly a third of the land north of the Copse Road away end at Huish Park. The adjacent area looks to be marked as car parking space, although this is not stated on the drawing. If this is the case, then the Food Store will be the one and only building to be sited on the area which currently holds two training pitches.
The other important thing not previously divulged is the project timescales. During December 2011, the club and its developers plan to review feedback, plus finalise and submit its planning application to South Somerset District Council. Between January and March 2012, they plan to have ongoing discussions between District and County Council Officers to agree finer elements of the submitted plans. They then expect to receive a final determination of their planning application in April/May 2012. There is no date for construction of the Food Store, and the construction of the Copse Road Stand upon the existing open ended terrace is not mentioned in the leaflet.
Three 'screen friendly' versions of the document are shown below, including one that enlarges the overhead plan of the land involved. You'll also find super-large sized versions of the documents in JPG and PDF format at the foot, although don't attempt to open these if you're on a mobile phone - wait until you're at home!
