There was "no new building" on the previous planning application either but the Council said that the substantial works proposed would harm the open and undeveloped nature of the MOL and that was one of the five reasons why they deemed the application unacceptable. So terraces, fences around the pitch and walls around the stadium do constitute unacceptable development with regard to MOL.

You'll notice that Meadow craftily talk about "the stadium" when in fact they mean the main stand only, eg "The stadium will sit outside the MOL". They wouldn't be doing that if they were confident that the rest of the stadium development was acceptable.

A reminder that there's a public meeting at Dulwich Hamlet's bar this evening to discuss all matters to do with the future of the club including, but not restricted to, the proposals for redeveloping the ground:

"The directors of Dulwich Hamlet Football Club will be holding a public meeting at the club house bar at Champion Hill Stadium at 7.30pm on Monday January 28, 2019.

The purpose of the meeting is to update fans and the local community on the status and future of the football club after the events of the past year and invite questions from attendees.

The club will be happy to answer questions on any subject including the financial position of the club, the status and impact of the new leases for the stadium and surrounding areas and our position on the proposed new application the development of Champion Hill by Meadow Partners."

Hi - I couldn't make this as I was out of the country. Would anyone who attended be able to post, or direct me to, a summary of what was said and done please?

Thanks.

Iíve just attended the exhibition at Dulwich Hamlet for the development by Meadow. As expected nothing much extra information wise. when you sign in you can ask for email updates on the project and there are forms to fill in to give feedback.

The exhibition runs for another hour or so, until 2pm. If you have questions there are people there to talk to.

What little information there is can be found on [www.championhillproposals.com]. There is a model of the proposed site at the exhibition but it was surrounded when I was there and may well change before the formal planning application so I didnít wait to see it.

Iíd say if you are going to Sainsburys / will be in the area pop in but donít make a special journey unless you want to ask questions.

DHFC seem to be absolutely awash with cash since their return to champion hill. Quite a remarkable turnaround from fans having to pay the players wages.

Does anyone know where all the money has come from?

messageRe: Dulwich Hamlet
Posted by BrandNewGuy February 26, 04:38PM

Um, hardly. According to the directors, they might now end the season level financially rather than making a substantial deficit, as they had feared. Only the increased attendances have turned that around. But the club is a long way away from being wealthy.

Hi Abe,

Interested in what you are basing this comment on and what your motivation is. This sort of uninformed and speculative comment can be quite damaging, whatever your objective.

As Brandnewguy says, the directors were quite candid about current finances at a recent fans meeting. Awash with cash is a position we can only dream of.

messageRe: Dulwich Hamlet
Posted by Abe_froeman February 26, 05:14PM

My motivation is curiosity. They seem to have gone from relying on "12th man" buckets to pay the wages to being able to afford a refurbished bar with Sky TV that is open 7 days a week, new toilets, new banners etc.

Quite a turnaround and I just wondered how they did it?

messageRe: Dulwich Hamlet
Posted by Scottfield February 26, 05:24PM

So your other post asking whether the council gave dhfc some money is unrelated?

Either way, you are best asking the club themselves rather than here, I've found them to be very helpful, transparent and communicative. Why don't you come to a game? The directors are always happy to talk to you on a match day.

messageRe: Dulwich Hamlet
Posted by Abe_froeman February 26, 06:56PM

Well, no, not unrelated because if the council had subbed them some cash that would have made a lot of sense. But it seems they didn't.

It took me all of three seconds to Google "Dulwich Hamlet New Bar" and find this: [www.southwarknews.co.uk] - perhaps that would have been easier for you?

The answer is simple Abe. Having successfully impersonated you at lunch some time ago, I took things a step further and have been standing in for you at your pork factory when you've been out to lunch over the last six months. During this time I have secretly liquidated almost all of your company's assets (leasing them back on ridiculous terms, so that you wouldn't notice they are gone) and have given the proceeds to the Club. All you have left in fact is the land the factory is on, which you will need to sell to meet your liabilities. But never mind, you're in a prime location perfectly suited to a dense residential development scheme and so I'm sure you'll find plenty of buyers.

Is it still possible to buy DHFC merch from the bar in the evenings?

messageRe: Dulwich Hamlet
Posted by Scottfield February 27, 02:33PM

Not from the bar, no to the best of my knowledge. You either need to come to a match and visit the megacontainer or alternatively you can buy online here [www.dhfcshop.co.uk]

There will probably be walk in tickets available on the day, but if you buy beforehand you'll be able to use the Greendale entrance and skip the longer queues.

Crunch game this afternoon against moneybags high-fliers Billericay Town. Hamlet could really do with a win to ease the relegation worries, so come along and give them a cheer. Kick-off 3pm at Champion Hill, but get there early if you don't have a ticket as the queues at the cash turnstiles can be long close to kick-off.

Well that was some game. The mighty Hamlet came back from being 2 down, final score 2 all.
