I understood a well known footballer (Rio Ferdinand? I don't know footballers' names!) was trying to buy the land, and has already offered ten million pounds, but Meadow are not responding to his attempts to contact them.

And to be fair it seems to me that the council are being very supportive and doing their best to help.

"Dulwich, who are exploring options to groundshare at other south London clubs as they seek to fulfil their remaining six home games this season, remain of interest to Rio Ferdinand’s affordable housing group, Legacy Foundation. The former England defender, who hails from nearby Peckham and is a close friend of the Dulwich manager, Gavin Rose, had proposed a development in compliance with Southwark Council’s requirements with a £10m bid lodged with Meadow before Christmas. That was rejected, with subsequent efforts to re-enter negotiations having come to nothing."

Feels like Meadow will keep hold of the site out of spite... Can council/government do a compulsory purchase, does anyone know?

looks like a lengthy procedure with lots of scope for appeal by Meadow .

I guess Southwark would cite building council homes and keeping the club as reasons ,


"Legislation in England and Wales gives many authorised bodies (referred to in this booklet as
“acquiring authorities”) the power to acquire land compulsorily where the landowner or occupier is
not willing to sell by agreement. "

"Compulsory purchase powers are provided to enable acquiring authorities to compulsorily
purchase land to carry out a function which Parliament has decided is in the public interest"

If the developers go through with their eviction threat, Dulwich Hamlet will be playing their remaining 'home' games this season at Tooting & Mitcham's ground. Traditional rivals they might be ("Thieves & Muggers"), but good on them.

Although there seems to be some signs of compromise

Edit: thinking again is this compromise - or what Meadow wanted originally and have tried to make seem like a compromise position through recent actions.

This so-called compromise (ie, threaten all manner of nasty stuff and then row back a bit) is already dead in the water – Southwark Council won't give Green Dale to them and the Supporters Trust has said that 'there can be no future for any development involving Meadow at Champion Hill'.

They are right now putting a solid fence along the back....making a thin pathway on a major walkway from Bessemer Grange School.....means the path will be without street lighting in an area already highlighted for potential crime....These people are mean....winding up the local community...crap public relations....all these primary kids wondering what's going on....'oh just the mean developers from Meadow wanting to build on your park, put up fences and in the process of kicking out your local football team'.....hopefully it will feed into their wider education...

Posted by Amanda1979 12 March, 2018 19:01

Sorry, why will there be no Street lighting?

I think blocking that road and the entrance to the astroturf is disgusting. It is just inconveniencing residents and surely they need to keep residents on side? I assume Meadow are running into the ground so it is worthless so they can build on it but there is no way residents are going to support that with the way they are trying to hold the community to randsom... serious toys being thrown out of pram childish behaviour!

From how Meadow are regarding what they view as 'their property' I am assuming this is the building line they would have adopted in reality if people would have swallowed the utter bollocks they proposed about a 'linear park'in their planning application to keep Greendale connected to St. Francis.

Posted by Cora 12 March, 2018 22:06

Amanda, the lights face onto the area that will be behind the fence, there is no lighting on the actual path area...

messageRe: Dulwich Hamlet
Posted by Amanda1979 12 March, 2018 22:19

The lampposts are sited in the pavement so should be fine... I hope! Plus they are still using the metal fencing so they let the light through.... or at least that's what they were securing to the posts when we went past earlier.

On the news now. Council are going to try and force Meadow to sell the land to the council, with a CPO being the last resort. Meadow can't win on this.

messageRe: Dulwich Hamlet
Posted by AGW3 13 March, 2018 21:54

Meadow will lose out in the long run becuase they're being so bloody awkward erecting fences and barriers around the ground and they're alienating the local community who are now firmly on the club's side.

From DHFC's FB page:

"BREAKING:

The Southwark Council cabinet has voted unanimously to release funds to attempt to acquire Champion Hill to provide social housing for the borough, and safeguard the future of @DulwichHamletFC.

We urge Meadow to enter negotiations swiftly so we can return home.

Note: Social Housing would be provided on the current site of the ‘car wash’ car park, and the stadium would be protected from any future housing development. "
