Brockhall STC - planning permission application ?


Recommended Posts

Definitely concerning. Everything we always knew was going to happen with Venkys. Not a mention of this from the board whatsoever.

You have to wonder what the plans for the mixed academy will be. They will all be available to download once the application is in.

With respect, you are talking absolute rubbish on this point and imo being extremely disrespectful to Jack Walker. I hope my post doesn't send you scurrying off to the moderators to complain as I woul

Joe, I mean this will all due respect, but Jack’s legacy isn’t Rovers winning the league. I would assume you’re too young to really remember what Jack did? Jacks legacy is putting Blackburn on th

First alarm bell that should be going off is the fact that the club have only acted AFTER the news has emerged through fans doing homework online and spotting the planning application. If this is

What was the 'community asset' thing that some people got Brockhall registered as a few years ago?

They got it for the ground but not sure on this one i've half a mind the club objected and won on that one. Would certainly make sense now.

I wonder is this how they are funding the new Riverside stand and £2 million new pitch (sarcasm).

You could well be right though it's just the type of thing some might 'pitch' to the owners.  Commission to be had all over the place with this kind of thing if you know the right firms to do it.

Yep. The V’s wouldn’t have a clue what we do and don’t need ‘football’ wise. Certainly been advised/tipped off here, 100%.

Expect the usual suspects on FB to say it's a marvellous gesture from the Venkys to realise the housing shortage in the UK.

Why do I do it? Just been on FB and it's being spun as BRFC moving with the times.

Unbelievable

This one has Waggott's grubby fingers all over it. He's here on the promise of boosting the coffers and cutting dependence on India. He'll have had his sticky eyes on the potential and value of Brockhall since the day he arrived and will see it as a relatively quick and obvious way of bringing in millions in one swoop. 

I'd rather we hadn't bought Sam Gallagher but hey ho.

There will be uproar about this but hiding away in London with retirement in sight he'll be off before there's any trouble.

And people honestly think the current coaching staff are going anywhere? The journey certainly is just beginning...

Doing this would put them firmly into the Steve Kean bracket.

I can't read it. Those people would see the good side if we demolished Ewood to rent at Turf Moor. 

These are the fools who Waggott will have wrapped around his little finger.

170 units at average of 400000 a house is approx 68million gross development value

 

‘Well realistically we’re sh*te at our jobs so can’t get you the £170m that promotion would bring. But do you fancy a quick £60m? If so, we’ll take a share too and keep our jobs for as long as like, doing what we want with minimal interference.’

It’s one thing people trying to convince themselves of such an idea to help them sleep. But to peddle this kind of clap trap in public...?

Sadly the little and loud portion of our fanbase are firmly bought into the Mowbray and Waggott ethos that we are a ‘small club’.

We really are doomed with these idiots at the helm. And we thought Elliott Bennett at full back was the worst of it!

That's the only way they are ever going to recoup that sort of money from their losses anytime soon. Unless Buckley and Brereton can find some form.

Managers reluctance to use the indoor training pitches with using ewood lately smells of more than coincidence now with this

Exactly the first thing that sprang to mind for me too.

Two ways they'll sell this to the fans:

Developing one site after selling the other will raise money to enable better and more modern facilities to be built (it won't, because they won't pay for better facilities than those already there, they'll do it on the cheap) I doubt there's even room down there to build an indoor centre big enough for the academy and senior squad with parking, ground staff etc.

Mowbray will sell it as an important step to 'consolidate' the academy and senior squads with them training together and will help 'link' them more closely (it won't).
