I am pleased to announce that this week we have received Planning Permission from Broxtowe Borough Council for our new clubhouse. We have had to jump over a few hurdles but we can now finally move forward to an exciting new era for the club.
Over the next month we will be putting in a Building Regulations application whilst also finalising quotes for all items – we need three to satisfy Sport England. At the moment the figures we have indicate the clubhouse can still be built within the original budget. In addition a project plan is being finalised and the aim is to present this at the AGM in November. Much of the construction work will need your support and in November we will be circulating the skills we require for each phase. I hope as many of you as possible are able to assist in this project. Start date has not been agreed but I would expect the winter work parties will be focused on the new clubhouse this year.
Finally, thanks to the small group who have worked very hard over the last 12 months to complete the design and gain planning permission; Dave Bexson, Rich Chaney, Rob Corner, Roger Day and Mike Pritchard.
