Brown land with NCB owned bore holes in it. That's why nobody showed interest in the past. Since the allotments have been paased for building and the big demand for building land I reckon now the NCB has gone and our land is adjacent to the allotments that it would be easy peasy to get planning. The big question is why are anonymous investorsa interested ina small town club unless they get some return. The idea that they are benevolent people with an interest in the Featherstone club is a load of codswallop. Why should they be? The reason they are in the club is to take it over so we have no say in the development. For crying out loud. I reckon with planning we are looking at a value of £15 million. To sell without planning would be suicide. Lease the land after planning, retain ownership and get a return on the developments.
TBH Colin there is a lot of speculation in what you've posted.
Planning permission and land reclassification is never "easy-peasy". If it was so desirable as building land how come nobody has ever made a move on it? Nobody has ever offered ROvers money for it?
People are dubious about Feisal. Fair do's. But a man who has made his money from tax and investment now wants to build houses in Fev on brown belt land? And the best way to get that land is to buy rugby league players for the club? Seems very far-fetched.
If (and its a huge if) the land was developed for property, how would the club retain ownership of the land? Paying a construction company to build the houses, then rent them out? So the club would become a property developer? Really?
