'If It's Football, It's Vital'

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...

The trade offs begin.

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
paultsmouth
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"
pompeycarpet
wow, gold!
pompeycarpet
Easier to read in black though. Planning appeals can take some time unfortunately.
eastneydave
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?)
pompeycarpet
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.
russellm
carpet, cant you just type something on gold say on outlook and then copy and paste?
russellm
i dont think so...and besides, why would you want to put it in gold? ts illegible!
pompeycarpet
May be we should build an big house to keep asylum seekers, ex cons, ex pervs, onlegged lesbians & there 6 kids from 6 different fathers & then they might help us out.
storagematt
gtold is cool though - creats a precedent. I want copper and silver.

This is the English society in microcosm. It makes me sick. Maybe we should relocate to milton keynes, that would show the complete bunch of aunts. The 'way of life' they think they are preserving never existed - it's a myth. well they can stick their planning aplication up their arses. Aunts.
Et_tu_Pompeii
PS. Can we change the photo. It's got Mornar in it. And Steph. Second thoughts, we could do with them.
Et_tu_Pompeii
aunts nice, bunch of money funsters as well don't you think?
paultsmouth
Hey, have we got a member called Tichfield Tim or Field mouse Phil who could help?
Et_tu_Pompeii
i went for it as it had duffy in it... i forgot what he looked like! it was a training ground image, so it seemed to tie in... we need help, helping pompey will help the city as a whole - as said if it was a hotel or something permission would be given in a shot...
pompeyrug
maybe the field mice are best friends with the canada geese from a few years back
UKTony
I knew we wouldnt get planning permission. I'll be surprised if we get it for the ground too. We need to elect a Council made up of Pompey fans in the next elections one for each area. Then we can push through any planning application no problem. Anyone fancy standing?
auntwallop
dont think they would accept me...dont live in the area, and im probably not old enough...and knowing my luck, i would probably get on! well, the problem is, that modern society is so orientatedaround visiting ancient fields, and looking after field mice, that there would be public uproar if the planning aplication was failed!
pompeycarpet
sorry, if the planning alicaton was passed - that font colour is aparantly "peru"
pompeycarpet
why cant they see that it not olny benefits portsmouth football club but portsmouth as a city to help us out? why is it so hard to understand...
pompeyrug
Shortsightedness ... Why don't the City of Portsmouth want a Premier League Football Team to have Premier League facilities... I just wish some people would put down their guardians, take off their scandals and have a look at the real world around them.. Makes me want to spit...
