I have to say that if that’s correct (and I have no reason to assume that it isn’t) , I’m stunned that the Council would grant a planning permission for a major green belt development with no requirement that the main community gain ( the Stadium) would be safeguarded long term as a community asset. I hope that the stadium site has covenants on to guarantee its long term use for sport

Does anyone really think a new retail park will open there?
Retail as you will see (post Christmas ) in the traditional way is in serious decline.
Funding will never be found to build retail as we stand.
Bad timing again but the cycle is against us.
Let’s hope there is a plan B

At last years agm, it was stated that a 'plan b' would be looked at, however there was no information/indication of how serious or to what that option may be.

Unfortunately shareholders will not be able to ask about this as I understand there will be NO AGM this year.

I'd be interested to know what any plan B could be
Other than spending a shed load of money trying to get the ground upgraded I can't see what other viable options there would be

I am rather confused not being a shate holder.
But Robbo obviously is and uses the forum to in my opinion vent his spleen as no formal avenue appears available.
If l have misunderstood it's a few years since an AGM was held..
Casmania whom l assume is also a shareholder seemed to indicate an AGM was held last year.
He also seemed to admonish me for mentioning that there was a valid reason for the delay, cancellation, deferment of the AGM
If people post on this forum surely it is there for comment and or debate.
Not for the mods who in general l respect to act as some Orwellian thought police.
I have always wanted the dream to be true but in the real world doubted why anyone would chose to invest millions in such a disadvantaged area.
It never made commercial sense but then again Turkeys have recently voted for Christmas.
So now Brexit will happen
That obstacle is no longer there will the development go ahead.
About as likely as Eton having Rugby League on the curriculum.
It's time to spend money, harness volunteers or whatever.
We are going to be at Wheldon Road for the foreseeable future.
Let's hope the club make a statement soon and action not ling after.
Season Greetings and here to 2020 and many more years at Wheldon Road.
Perhaps we should approach Time Team for Sponsorship.

You have misunderstood an AGM has been held every year!

I have certainly not admonished you in anyway??? I was suggesting in a broad manner in a comment as to try and avoid any speculation. My general comment was certainly not aimed at you, but it appears you deliberately want to take it that way.
I resent the Orwellian jibe. Without moderation, this forum would quickly descend into nothing but abusive name calling. Its only when abuse, potential libel or thread derailment appears does a mod get involved.
It is a thankless, time consuming task, especially when dealing with numerous private messages and requests from users who complain or report other users/posts.

I hope that clarifies things for you.

That's what we should have started doing ten years ago
It will be a hell of a task now IMO

It needs knocking down and starting from scratch,sadly something that would cost far too much to be achievable

If we had £20m to spare to do it up. It's not viable when there's an easier and much more affordable plan A. A modern new stadium is worth significantly more what Wheldon Rd could do.

The plan B that was in the newsletter 6 months ago was to do up WR. I would imagine it will be similar to Hull KR - probably new main stand first. Ask for £2m from WMDC a la Wakefield.

There has always been an AGM and the thread started by asking if one had been called.
The club was owned by shareholders since its inception.
Due to no fault of shareholders it now seems we are an no longer to be part of that ownership.
Were holders bought out? No
Were holders given a choice ? Yes

However so loaded was the question that some bought into the trust and stoped the club folding.

I and others warned this may happen but the vote was carried.

I think we may get a final AGM if the club are pressurised .
If not only time will tell what the future holds
