Well who knows- It's a possibility I guess. i've not been there-I assume it's not up to Ryman Prem standard- I believe it's near Wood Green -is that right? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Maybe Wimbledon have decided Milton Keynes is a bit too far after all?

I heard Spurs were looking to build a new stadium.Mind you what with finances in football at the moment....

Or if ETFC fail with any planning permission....

Please don't post back taking these suggestuions seriously!

Funny you should say that, MKJ, but the other week we were chatting about the Spurs thing in the office, and concluded that if THFC MUST move from WHL (and we couldn't see why they should)then the New River Stadium in White Hart Lane proper could be a possible site for a new stadium. The only public transport there at present is the W3 bus though. The point being, the Haringey Borough stadium is immediately opposite (and prone to constant flooding I understand). I am assuming that they are where they always used to be of course.

ETFC were granted planning permission several months ago, by the way, and no, I didn't take you too seriously!

so, this was true after all! "what a load of tosh" i thought when i first read this. it just shows you?
still, i went past it the other day and i can't see how it could even play a ryman div one game therenever mind the premier. no cover for standing, no terracing ,not many seats in the stand , maybe 100? this will take a lot of work.
will the ground need planning permission to get it up to scratch?
where will haringay play?

nearer than borehamwood though

Actually this hasn't been confirmed by anyone at the club. All the fans know is that there is a ground in place for next season. We can only assume it's being kept quiet because a) it's too far outside of the borough (Hertford Town), or B) because it involves dropping out of the Premier Division (Cheshunt /Haringey). Still we should know for certain in 2-3 weeks time.
Personally my choices now would be 1. Cheshunt 2. Haringey. as a3rd. option I wonder if BRFC/ETFC would let us share with them!!!!(somehow I think not)

cheshunt? i know for a fact that the entire committee at cheshunt are totally opposed to enfield playing there.

the local council would almost certainly step in as they are very anti-enfield from lazerou's aborted attempt at buying the ground a few years ago.
lazerou could have bought the ground with his own money- not the escrow money put aside for it- but decided not to. some say because he didn't have the money after clearing his/enfields debts but i feel its because, after seeing the huge local oppostion from residents and at the council meeting the night his plans were rejected, he knew he had no future at cheshunt.

i reckon hertford or ware myself- the haringey ground is far too underdeveloped (though it would make a nice housing estate!).

Well, it looks like Cheshunt is out of the picture then. I have to say I have no interest in going to Hertford in a 4year deal, that's worse than the current situation. I don't think it likely that we will be able to attract any new followers in a place so far from Enfield.I've not been there myself, but no-one has yet posted a positive note about this ground.We have to move closer to home, otherwise the future doesn't bear thinking about <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Is that a FACT

Its not up to the committee Its up to the lease holder, the committee don't get a say in the use of the ground of facilities.

I should know

Do you have any 'insider' knowledge then Freebird? A lot of E's fans would like to know where we're going. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I see from the Enfield Gazette that Cheshunt has now got a "B" grading.

Well done and jolly good luck to them, but I'm wondering how planning permission for the new 300 seat stand was obtained, when I thought the Laz-backed application for stands to an "A" grade was refused on the grounds of being in the green belt ? Or am I mistaken?

Unless I'm very much mistaken, who actually plays there is not a planning issue.

I assume CFC did apply for planing permission????

i don't think you need planning permission to relay a few steps of terracing. i think naming it a "stand" is a bit of a joke.

Oh I see. I think.

You mean there aren't really 300 new seats?

Confused, of Enfield.
