Notice served and Dulwich Hamlet locked out of ground

A Slightly Less Invisible Cyber Fan These Days
The previous temporary fencing must be about 2 metres. Depends whether they intend the fence to be gthe full height of the posts, or whether the posts will be cut down to size. I'm sure there must be at least some sort of obligation to allow emergency access. I suspect the Friends of Greendale will know more about how to complain, and to whom.
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.

Another sound spanking for Meadow and their hapless lackeys Blake Morgan

There is also a takeaway message for lawyers, which is that, in this age of social media, any letter they send may end up in the (very) public domain. The widespread backlash against Greendales’ actions has not only been directed at Greendales; their lawyers have also found themselves in the middle of a PR nightmare.

Because I could not stop for death
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.

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

They are ringing the bells now but soon...
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.
