    Hoping for good news tonight. A CPO, £1, and at least two fingers to Meadow.

    How watertight is a CPO? I presume Meadow would try and fight it? Is it the sort of thing that could drag on?

    Well Southwark managed to screw the residents of the Heygate and surrounding estates with one, so they've had plenty of practice.

    Yes, it could take years. It won't happen overnight, that's for sure.

    They’ve strapped the Heras fencing to it, about1.80m high. There’s a gate at the car park end with a combination padlock so there is access to the sub-station all be it with bolt cutters if there’s no one one site who knows the combination.

    Bloody love Squires. Fingers on every football pulse. Not bad for a bloke who lives in Australia (I think).

    This is looking hopeful. I really hope the club can be saved.

    With luck Meadow will be keen to try to improve their PR after the recent debacle and will work with the council to secure DHFC's future.

    Keep plugging away. I like the focus on the money some are pursuing on social media.

    Hi, specialist CPO solicitor here. Yep, a single site CPO will take a minimum of 9 months (if unopposed) to 18 months/2 years if opposed. If Meadow were to chuck resources at it, e.g. judicially review the decision, then looking at the upper limit. Even once you have the CPO in place, it takes another 3-4 months to actually get ownership of the land.

    Southwark do, of course, have quite a bit of recent experience of difficult/controversial CPOs (e.g. Aylesbury Estate)

    Let's hope it can be resolved without recourse to the CPO route, and that Meadow bugger off of their own volition. But if not, this highlights the importance of a successful and sustainable exile from Champion Hill. That means money ultimately, flowing to the club to maintain a good team. Also maintaining the momentum that's built around the team and the community's support for it. I don't know if Imperial Fields can provide that beyond this season.

    not-bono-ever Not what they want but what is good for them

    meadows will have assess their path here- a shitty year or two with the possible outcome of a CPO and the chance of a tenfold profit if all goes well or cash in along previous offers and double their initial stake - bird in hand scenario. I know what I would do

    It may have to...but if we get through this we may have to take steps back to move forward. If that means a year or two in exile with lower level football then so be it.

    This is what's really making me angry. We may have to endure a couple of seasons of groundsharing with a vastly reduced playing budget and inferior team. The way the non-league pyramid is evolving, with more divisions and more small clubs rising to our level and the one below I wouldn't expect us to slip as far as the county leagues, but it would be a struggle to stay at Premier Division level. The management team who have built us up from that sort of situation almost a decade ago as a bog-standard D1S side playing in front of 200 will have walked away, then if/when we eventually return to Champion Hill circa 2020 we'll be right back where we were in 2010 and will have to build it all up again on the pitch and will have to hope that all the new supporters we've attracted from the neighbourhood will want to come flocking back again. If that happens I will make it my life's work to hound Meadow well beyond any involvement they have in our club.
