THE RULING Thurrock Council Labour Cabinet will sit on Wednesday night to consider the proposals for a new football stadium on the Billet Field in Stanford-le-Hope.
Cabinet first considered the potential relocation of East Thurrock United Football Club (“ETUFC”) to the Billet Field at its meeting in January 2014.
Discussions with the club have continued and the Member Working Group heard of progress at its meeting held in March 2014.
Cabinet is now requested to agree to disposal of the field, subject to planning consent being achieved and other conditions.
The cabinet can only recommend a proposal. A vote will go forward to the next council meeting in June.
The recommendations are as follows:
1. To dispose of Billet Field for the disposal sum of £340,000 in order to enable the relocation of East Thurrock subject to:
a. planning consents being given for the residential development otheir existing ground
b. and for the sports development of the Billet.
