Stadium Project Director Terry Dunn and City Chairman Kevin Satchell recently held a productive meeting with a consultant specialising in assisting with grant applications for sporting developments.
Grants can be obtained to assist with the development of various specific parts of the ground – for example the pitches, seating, access roads, floodlighting and so on. It is likely that the total amount the club could apply for will be in the low-to-medium six-figures.
Discussions will continue with the stadium project managers and the consultant to ensure that we make the maximum use of these funds at the appropriate time in the stadium build.
Terry Dunn, the Stadium Project Director said:
“These are very significant sums of money the club is looking to access, representing a fair proportion of the total cost of the stadium.
The grants are likely to cover a number of smaller items on the stadium build, rather than being used to fund the entire development.
Obviously a body awarding grants of the values we have been talking about will require multiple quotes for the work being carried out, and paperwork being supplied to them well in advance of those phases of the work being started. We will work closely with our project management team to ensure these grants are applied for at the appropriate time.
Fans should be reassured that even though building work hasn’t started, there is a lot of activity behind the scenes to ensure the new stadium will be one we can all be proud of”
The club will continue to supply regular updates to fans as the development continues. In the meantime, you can hear more from Terry Dunn: HERE
