Sixfields stand and land deal

A West Northamptonshire Council special meeting to discuss the proposed Sixfields stand and land deal, due to be held this month, will almost certainly now take place in the New Year. The Trust supported the call for a special meeting and understands the postponement is down to the council seeking further information around the independent valuation of land at Sixfields detailed in a report from Lambert Smith Hampton. We will keep you updated about a new meeting date and any other developments.

The Trust, with a few reservations, has adopted the Crouch report into football reform. We will be writing to our local MPs to request that they push for the report to be included in the Queen’s Speech and we would urge all football fans with an interest in football reform to do likewise.
