Support Eltham Town Football Club's Redevelopment
Eltham Town Football Club is an established local sports club and facility, primarily focused around the provision of amateur football for a variety of age groups and abilities. However, the facilities are no longer suitable for the required standard. The Club has subsequently lost hundreds of members over recent years to new grant aided clubs with better facilities. Ongoing maintenance is a constant issue for the Club, and what small revenue is generated is invested straight back into basic repairs, leaving no funds for any significant improvements. The Club is effectively in a state of decline.
In order for the Club to continue to operate at the site, it is vital that significant improvements are made to the facilities. The Club is therefore proposing the following improvements:
- A new Clubhouse (including new changing rooms and a new function room / bar);
- A new under 7s all weather pitch;
- Refurbishment of the existing pitches (including drainage improvements); and
- A new car parking area.
These improvements will be made possible through the provision of 21 new houses on a redundant piece of land in the northeast corner of the site. These homes will fund the improvements which will ensure the future of the Football Club for years to come.
It is anticipated that a full planning application for the proposed improvements will be submitted to the Royal Borough of Greenwich in Spring 2017.
If you would like to see these improvements come forward, we ask that you show your support by signing this petition.
