Many of you will have seen a piece on Guildford City Football Club’s proposals regarding the Slyfield Area Regeneration project in the Surrey Advertiser on Friday (if not click here) and I thought that I would expand a little on my comments.
I and a number of other councillors have received detailed brochures on Guildford City’s proposal that a new football ground be built as part of the Slyfield Area Regeneration. The brochure explains that such a ground could be a permanent base for Guildford City and also potentially help Guildford Boxing and Table Tennis clubs. Reading through the Club’s proposals I felt they were very interesting and showed a potentially exciting opportunity to put Guildford football ‘back on the map’.However it is important to remember that the Slyfield Regeration is still in its very early stages.
At present the council is still at the stage of selecting master planners who will come in and after extensive consultation with local residents and community groups will draft a plan of how the development may look. It is during this process of consultation that ideas such as those from Guildford City FC will be looked at and considered as to whether they would fit the vision of the regeneration project.
I will of course keep you posted with any news as I know there are many local residents who are keen fans of the club.Leave a comment
