USE ANOTHER SITE FOR HUB
AFTER attending the council meeting on September 21 and listening to the debate on the above on Highams Playing Fields, I was somewhat perplexed to hear statements from councillors Parkinson, Molineux and Cox that they would not support the request from Accrington Stanley Community Trust to create a sport hub at Highams PF if the borough solicitor, the funding organisation or Fields in Trust [raised objections].
Surely for the time the borough solicitor has had since the initial request of ASCT to create the hub one assumes that HBC are aware that there are no pitfalls on the convents from the Higham family, so why do the Labour Party keep using it as an excuse? The council would be doing ASCT an injustice if it was not privy to continue with the plans, so please stop using this as an excuse.
I am not against a sports hub but it should not be at Highams. Other sites/ venues could have been explored like Hollins School/King George’s which is a bigger square footage for use and are crying out for updating as King George’s has not catered for many football games since the changing rooms were completed followed by work on the field.
