    It is extremely annoying that everyone outside the club seems to ignore our tenancy situation as I am sure you agree :)

    There's lots of things that annoy me...but if I were to compile a list...I'd be a lot more unpopular than I already am! ;)

    Ha! No wonder you aren't on twitter. Your list on me would be several tweets of 140 characters.

    rover07 has a shining car.

    The land may still belong to the Council but the stadium will be owned by Hadley's.

    No it won't. Under this development it will be leased.

    And, further, if all goes to plan, and approval is given, down the line Hadley will no longer be involved, our Club will be fan-owned, so the Club will be all of ours.

    The information on provision of social housing is included in the FAQs on the Champion Hill Development site which has been around for some time so its not as Hadley have been hiding this FAQs | Champion Hill Stadium
    Was a glaring inaccuracy in the orginal 35% Report which states that the club sold the land for the building of Sainsbury, Had that been the case might be in a lot better position finacially (probably?).

    "It is important to note that the proposals are not a typical residential-led scheme, where a policy-compliant amount of affordable housing can be of course be provided. Instead, it is a stadium-led scheme that brings additional benefits to the local community."

    So that is pretty specific, they are using us to avoid providing social housing?

    I'd bet the profit would be a lot higher if you just let the club die much as happened to Fisher and a few other clubs. With a derelict stadium on their doorsteps, locals don't tend to baulk at residential developments as much.

    There are a lot easier ways to avoid the provision of social housing. Developers condemn housing policy that risks wrecking social mix in London

    Is it social or affordable? Getting confused. Either way using dhfc to avoid is grim.

    I love Dulwich Hamlet. I really don't like Hadleys' weaselling ways. That is all for now.

    With it being a private development won't be social, affordable within that definition of the word.

    Could also be construed that Dulwich Hamlet are using Hadley to obtain a new stadium with a decent leash and the chance to put behind us some of the shysters that have leached off the club pre-Hadley, making a fresh start as a Supporter-Owned club.

    Whichever way you twist it social/affordable housing is lost... so that's bad.

    Section 106. A certain of percentage of any development needs to have social or affordable housing... which I am assuming we the stadium are part of within the plans, so they dont have to build anymore..

    Providing social or affordable housing in this way is just a bodge job anyway, I didn't expect Hadley to provide it so I'm not surprised it isn't there.

    What on earth are you on about 'now butchers'????

    What's wrong with eating meat?

    Flock & Herd have been backers of the Club for several years now, in fact they have been one of our loyalist minor sponsors.

    Have you noticed the warm-up tops, boards around the ground, programme adverts & the back of the dugouts?

    Good grief!

    We need to be encouraging people to eat less meat, you know. You must have seen the research on this, no?

    Always amazes me that with Burger this and Burger that all over London, no one's thought to break the mould with some veggie options rather than each trying to outdo the other on how weird the toppings can get before maximum burger point is reached.
