Stadium: 'Robust' case not made, committee rules

Bucks Free Press: Stadium: 'Robust' case not made, committee rules Stadium: 'Robust' case not made, committee rules

A 'ROBUST' case for moving forward with the community stadium project has not been made, a scrutiny committee has agreed.

The decision to move ahead with Wycombe Air Park in Booker, Great Marlow, as the best site for a new ground and sports village was 'called in' by Wycombe District Council's Improvement and Review Commission.

And there were claims at the commission's meeting last night that the process has lacked “transparency”.

WDC Vice-Chairman Cllr Ian McEnnis proposed the 'call in' went ahead. He said there had not been a "robust case to proceed with the project in its current form".

Chairman Cllr Alex Collingwood said: “They (cabinet) have to come back on with a clear course of action if they going to continue with that particular route, they have to come back and consider how they would do it.”

The commission's decision will be referred back to Cabinet in March.

The Green Belt again featured centrally in the debate.

Cllr Audrey Jones said: “I think the whole issue of overriding policy on green belt and considering going forward with a planning application before we have resolved this is totally wrong.”

She questioned the public consultation results, saying: "everybody I meet is against it”, adding: “It should only be consultation with the people who live here.”

Cllr Malcolm Blanksby, Independent, said the Green Belt issue could leave the project “dead in the water”.

He said: “The thing that concerns me most is the lack of transparency.

"The consultation process was flawed. I'm still encountering people now in my ward who still don't know of this project and they're not unintelligent people."

But Leader Cllr Lesley Clarke, Conservative, responded: “I take exception to his word 'flawed' - our officers worked hard and those words were unjust.”

Cllr Paul Rogerson, Conservative, said the process needed to be clearer.

“I'm unhappy about how we are going about it," he said.

Cllr Trevor Snaith, Liberal Democrat, said if the project was put forward at a business launch he would walk away from it.

Cllr Alan Hill, Tory, questioned the commitment of Wasps, describing the club as "nomads", while Cllr Dominic Barnes said any planning application would fail on grounds of infrastructure.

But not all committee members agreed with the call in.

Cllr James Malliff, Conservative, said it seemed Cabinet had already agreed with its recommendations, adding: “I don't know what we're really expecting Cabinet to do here.” Cllr Simon Bazley, Conservative, also questioned this.

Cllr Ron Gaffney, Conservative, compared the process to the Grand National with many fences to overcome but added: “We're not even in the parade yet.”

Cllr Clarke said: "Cabinet had only decided on the site, that's the only thing we have looked at in the first instance.

"We have said all along there's lots more things to be considered.”

Cllr Clarke said: “We are so far away from a planning application it could be two or three years down the line, we have only been looking at the decision made for the consultation.

"We weren't allowed to talk about anything else as we were told it would skew the outcome.”

Deputy Leader Cllr Tony Green, Conservative, said: “I believe we are being transparent".

“A number of members are jumping ahead.

"We realise we have still got a long way to go before we are talking about planning applications and building stadiums, it's a process with many stages,” he said.

He added: “We know there will be huge community benefits, we need to be able to confirm these.”

The issue of re-examining a split-site option was also raised.

But Cllr Green said: “You end up having effect on to greenbelt sites rather than just one" while Cllr Clarke said it would leave less money to build the stadium.

Cllr Collingwood seems a very tough chap to overrule; he defended the scrutiny committee's position vigorously last night, albeit in the face of a very lack-lustre performance by the council's trio.
All power to his elbow; the Green Belt and AONB issues look like being, initially at least, the main battle ground and offering the quickest way of getting the proposals cancelled.

So why do the job applications state that everything would be completed by 2014????

I don't think we shoudl get too excited yet. All that the Scrutiny Committee has demanded is that the Council's Cabinet revisits their previous decision to go forward with the stadium proposals. There is nothing whatever to stop the Cabinet (led by the infamous Clarke and Green) doing what they have been told - i.e. having a bit of a think about the plans, and provide more detail about how it would be achieved - and then coming back and saying: "We've thought about it - and we're still going ahead - here's some extra detail about how we're going to push on and do it"! I wouldn't be surprised if they don't try to keep such news until after the May elections - hoping that we'll all have breathed a sigh of relief and carried on voting Conservative in the meantime!

Great result last night. Alex Collingwood was superb and to be commended on the chairing of the debate and his ability to make sense of the various comments . Surely he will be the next future leader of the council. This was the first time I have heard Lesley Clarke speak publicly and was extremely dissapointed. She can hardly put together a cohesive argument and deserved some of negative feedback she received from the commission when not being able to answer simple questions. I am amazed that she has risen to the level of authority that she has achieved. She had the public gallery rolling with laughter at times. Not with her but at her! This story has a long way to go yet and whilst last night was a positive outcome we can not ease off the pressure on any of the council members.

It strikes me that if Lesley Clarke and Tony Green cannot see how the whole thing is flawed, then how can they be expected to run a district council?
.
I do think that Clarke is partially correct when she says that there is a long time to go, and I think that she thinks that all these "problems" will be sorted as they go along.
.
However, it seems that the Hayes camp think that everything is a done deal, hence the job adverts "for completion in 2014". He obviously is under the impression that Clark and Green can ultimately deliver this nice little windfall for him.
.
I wonder if Hayes would be quite so keen if part of the deal was for a minimum 20 year rental for Wasps/WW share of the ground. Probably not.
.
There is talk of purchasing/renting Loftus Road in Shepherds Bush if QPR get to move to a new stadium on the site of the BBC Television centre. (A more modern TV centre having already been built on the site of the old White City stadium.
.
What will happen if Hayes decides to move Wasps back into somewhere in London if the opportunity arises?
.
Not only is this morally wrong - tearing up the greenbelt - but is a very big gamble on Wasps and WW staying in the area. Without Wasps, WW will be ditched and go into freefall, maybe even go out of business altogether.

So Leslie Clarke defended Her position on the consultation process, She knows as well as every one else, the consultation was designed to be abused. If the consultation had been restricted to local residents as it should have been the result would have been completely different. She said her officers worked very hard, I'm sure they did,they rejected the fair and proper way to run a consultation and chose one that they knew could be cheated, and cheated it was! How could the result stand when they knew the rugby spectators had been handed The consultation forms complete with instructions on how to complete them in favour of Booker as the prefered site? The cheats even had a similar scam working with the university students. Clarke then said nothing else had been planned and only the naming of Booker as the prefered site had been decided, so if we are to believe her the Cabinet decision to go forward was based on a cheated consultation that was drawn up on her instructions to her officers.
The truth of the matter is the facts that I have just related are now well known and understood by everyone concerned.
I think councillor Jones had it right, when she said the consultation was deeply flawed and that it should not count. She said it was for local people to decide not those from all over the country. Clarke looked guilty and furtive as indeed she should.
The calling in was right and proper and the tide has now turned. As for Leslie Clarke? she has been left with Tony Green and Gerry Unsworth sitting on the beach waiting to be washed away, they are certainly in deep water.

Please don't try to sell us this rubbish.
1/. It was the Tory councill who started the stadium going with no dissention in the councillor ranks.
2/. All those loyal councillors said exactly nothing publicly whilst Lane End/ Booker/ Marlow Bottom protested at the grotesque infringement of Green Belt.
3/. Only when it gets very close to elctions in May do one or two bother to speak out, mainly those most in danger of losing their seats so in effect they have nothing to lose anyway.

Dividing opposition is the most effective way of winning a battle so we don't want them to do that, do we?
