I opted to register and found getting into the right consultation area (without having seen John's guidance above) a bit of a pain. I went round in a couple of circles, but made it in the end and have left my supportive comments.
I emailed my comments to them and they responded with an email giving me a user name and password. I have since used these to complete the on line form. If you log in and then follow the links John has provided a prompt to comment on line should appear (at least it did when I looked anyway). This takes you straight to the relevant on line form.
I'd like to urge anyone who has not yet registered your support to do so when you have a few spare minutes on line. The more backing this receives the better, both for the club and the local community.
Just to let you all know, following the conclusion of the consultation exercise, this proposal is going before the Council's Planning Advisory Group at 7.30pm tommorow (15/09/09) - meeting to be held in the Civic Offices. I have seen the officers' report to Councillors and whilst this is in no way a 'done deal' I can tell you that the report will be recommending that the development is adopted as part of the Council's Planning Strategy. Well done to everyone for registering their support. The result was an overwhelming positive response including replies from not only regular attendees to GGL but other interest groups such as English Heritage, Sutton Cricket Club and Natural England. What was interesting about the consultation process was that not only was there total support for the idea, but that other suggestions were made regarding access to the facility such as car parking, footpaths, toilets and a cafeteria. Whilst these are all matters that the offficers have said will require further investigation, it just goes to show what happens if you get a debate going in a public domain. Of course, as Doublebarrel has said under a different post, this is all linked to our application for FA Community Status and we are going to need a lot of help with that process. Met Police Community Fun Days, a Women's Football Day (possibly against Hastings on 13 February) and bringing the Colts into the heart of the club are all crucial to our plan so lets follow up the support you registered for the Council proposal with support for the Club's application. I will let you know how the Council meeting goes.

merchandiser: You guys make me laugh, have you been to many away grounds, I don't think so. When we travelled up north for most of the trophy rounds last season, you would not believe, it was like going back to the seventies.

scorpioeyes: It's time to scrap play-offs,they are ridiculous.

scorpioeyes: I predicted a relegation struggle with a totally inexperienced manager. Hope I am wrong, but it doesn't look like it. MG is out of his depth,that's obvious.

ggl: So are we now saying we have a manager who is not in favour of bringing in loan players and if the board decided to part company with him they cannot afford to do so ?

historyboy: So sorry to hear about the passing of Eddie Clack. I Remember him well.

historyboy: Sad to hear of the passing of Eddie Cack, I remember him well. I think that the said photograph publishsed by the club, of him sitting next to Dave Hermitage, isn't him at all; I think the picture shows Micky Goodall. Compare other pictures of both.

scorpioeyes: It certainly would be 'convenient' for Dover to have the season washed out. if they fail to turn up tomorrow,we should be awarded the game and 3-0 to our goal difference.Why should we be inconvenienced by any attempts to rearrange the game?

Burtie: Hello chaps. Is there any intelligence about the crowd situation for the game vs Hartlepool on 22 May? Does the club have a position on supporters?
Apr 24, 2021 17:02:01 GMT
scorpioeyes: I think these odds are quite amazing. If I was a neutral looking at the recent form and upcoming fixtures,I'd make hartlepool or perhaps Torquay as fave for the title. To have 'pool at 9s and us as evens is bizarre.

scorpioeyes: yes,'arrogant' is the right word. No objectivity allowed!

valiant: Hello again! Can you tell me where the away seating is please? I thought it was behind the goal next to the away terrace but looking at the film on Quest I can't see it! Thanks.

pinewalker: There is a temporary stand at 45 degrees to the pitch behind the NE corner flag, and there is more away seating at the east end of the main stand both accessed via the away turnstiles.

neil: My father used to take to watch Queens Park Rangers back in the late 60's (I recall he knew one of the Directors at the club). I still have many programmes from that time through the 70's. Happy Days !
