Trust news update: May 2019

27th May 2019

The Trust has been meeting with Northampton Borough Council regarding the status of the east stand development at Sixfields.

The council maintains that everything is in place for the football club to bring forward plans to finish off the east stand.

The council insists that they require the football club to sign a deed of surrender, returning leasehold land to the football club from a development company so as to progress the development.

Only then will the local authority be prepared to enter into discussions regarding the development of wider land at Sixfields.
