These Covenants are not as difficult to get removed as they used to be.

If it made the Council a few Bob, and released the Council from their responsibility towards the  Walks Stadium, my money would be on it being possible to do.

Town centre grounds should be embraced but maybe I'm just a legacy fan!

Only a few years ago I would have said the same. If there was a proven plan to show that its possible to bring Walks up to the standard required, I'd love it to work.

Sadly, I don't think that can happen.

I’ve always thought a ground near the speedway would be the ideal spot if they were to make an out of town ground, most of the infrastructure is already in place. Or on the Gardman site.

Only runs to 2024 according to a story on the Trust News pages.


AP, I think that refers to the Walks Stadium being registered as an Asset of Community Value, and is nothing to do with the rumoured Covenant.

ACV's have to be re-registered every 5 years.

If there is  Covenant saying the Walks Stadium can only used for football or sport why was it necessary to register it as a CSV?
Was it just to preserve it as a stadium rather than a sports field?

I wonder how much the council value the land The Walks is on? Prime real estate where houses could be worth a small fortune. Park views, walking distance of train station that's straight into London. Developers dream.

Ideal for me if money was there to do a good stadium with council backing after selling the stadium land, locate it Greenyard Way, where the road infrastructure is already there. If logistically possible, have the main stand moved over from existing ground, have two terraced ends, and a brand new main stand that has top hospitality facilities. Giving size of land, can even build a few houses on there to recoup some of the money for the council (or go commercial to bring in jobs/investment to Lynn). There's also already a foot bridge going over the trainline so you can walk to the ground from Gaywood area (plus in future big games, links with the schools can see parking used at their places with a small fee going to them so the car network is distributed more away from the actual ground).

Logistically ideal, just unsure if council have that area/land earmarked for housing development. Fylde I always see as the template for new stadiums in the top level of non league if you want to go the full works.

An idea that has been around for a number of years, in one form or another.

A great chance to build something for the club and the local community. Sooner or later something serious is going to have to happen with the Walks, irrespective of the level the club plays at.

As long as a new stadium doesn't have a bloody running track between the supporters and pitch.

With regards to cost, could it even be self funding? Selling an attractive piece of real estate and using the money to buy and develope agricultural land sounds good.

Saddlebow as a location?

Attelborough Doug is spot on it has got a covernant on the ground and should
only used for football or sport. As for the car park being laid at Hospital End that would
be up to the club not the Council.

I wonder if Stephen Cleeve still has that "illegal" Parking Meter  :dontknow: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Another ground could be good.  I don’t go with the idea that we need an over5,000 crowd to justify improved and/or covered terraces.  Their provision might well attract players, too.  How do clubs like Eastleigh pay for their superb modern terrace additions . We have more potential to pull in 5,ooo crowds than most in this league, but the ground needs to be part of the snowball....

I would thought a decent road network would be more attractive to players.  Northern based players must love the A17!
