Pompey plan to appeal rejection

Pompey plan to appeal rejection

Maybe I am viewing this through a blue and white - with a moon and star in the middle of each - spectacles but the decision to reject our application for the training ground complex at Titchfield amazes me...

I say amazes me, but the rejection does not surprise me in many ways as we do not seem to be getting much support from those that we need it from... but the fact that something which will not only benefit Portsmouth Football Club, but Portsmouth as a City does - the benefits for all will be there so why can we not get more help from the local council?

We appear to be doing all we can to help the community as well as trying to preserve and protect the local habitat yet still this is not considered good enough.

Peter Storrie has confirmed that we will appeal this decision, so as much as I hope that we will get a positive outcome, with our efforts seemingly being thwarted at every turn I will not be holding my breath...

Amazing, typical councils everywhere. Happy to take football related income on matchdays through various means but not to support the club which helps generate the money.

Fareham Council are the guilty parties this time, how can what is basically some well kept grass are be a threat to the environment? Okay the changing facilities will need to be built, but if Marriotts asked to build a hotal with landscaped gardens you can bet they'd get permission

i really cant understand why they refused planning permision. i mean, i read it through, and it was something like being a historical site (which attracts thousands of vistors every month) and there are some field mice (...) that need protecting. i mean, surely they could at least be honest and say "we dont want it" not "the field mice might get hurt"

Easier to read in black though. Planning appeals can take some time unfortunately.

yes, it is very nasty to read in gold isnt it. i guess you could say i was...experimenting...with html... and it turns out to be a lot of effort just to change the colour (you have to write in american!) anyway, planning apeals can take ages, then be rejected for the most absurd reasons. I know someone, who had a planning aplication rejected for a wall - becasue they didnt provide wheelchair access...(dont know how that is possible...wheelchair accsess for a wall, why would they even want access?)

Well the field mice and histerical (sorry) historical beauty would have been known prior to the initial go ahead, so the probable reality is the council want something, bu the way soembody bought some cheap ink and it's faded to yellow.

Cookie pleased with Bournemouth showing

You cannot always gage too much from pre-season can you. Although the game with Bournemouth tends to again show Pompey have goals in us this season...but we'll concede them too?

Pompey and Bournemouth play out 3-3 draw

Those who turned up in the Fratton sunshine for Alan McLoughlin's benefit match with Bournemouth would view it as an afternoon well spent with it value for money.
