Boost for Southend United stadium plans; Prospects College site ‘sold for £2m’

Chelmsford Weekly News: Blues chairman Ron Martin Blues chairman Ron Martin

THE last major obstacle blocking Southend United’s stadium move has been cleared.

The Echo understands Sainsbury’s has struck a deal to buy the old Prospects College site, in Fairfax Drive, which is crucial to the Blues’ dream of building a new home at Fossetts Farm.

A stalemate between the college and the supermarket chain, which will develop the college site as part of a new superstore, had threatened to derail the entire project.

However, it is now believed both parties, with the help of Southend Council, have settled on a reported £2million sale.

A source close to the deal said: “That’s the figure I understand has been agreed. Prospects was always happy to sell, but it took some time for it to be smoothed out.”

The Prospects building is at the heart of Sainsbury’s plans to redevelop the Blues’ Roots Hall ground.

In return for the land, the supermarket chain has agreed to bankroll the majority of the new stadium at Fossetts Farm.

Sainsbury’s has already agreed to buy the flats at St Mary’s Court, in Victoria Avenue, bulldoze the buildings and relocate the residents there.

It still needs to buy up a few remaining shops in Victoria Avenue, and the flats above them, with some of the owners believed to be holding out for a higher price.

However, the Prospects site was seen as the key deal which would make or break the project, to the extent that council chiefs agreed in January to use a compulsory purchase order to end the deadlock. That was a move which angered Neil Bates, chief executive of Prospects, who said the college had always been willing to sell and there was no need for “heavy-handedness”.

Council chiefs stepped in to broker a deal, and bosses from Sainsbury’s and Prospects have met in recent weeks to finalise an agreement. It is understood Sainsbury’s still needs to exchange contracts before the sale can be formally completed.

Rob Tinlin, the council’s chief executive, said: “We are delighted to be able to help key partners like Southend United and Prospects College, and pave the way for the club to achieve its new stadium – and for Sainsbury’s to gain a new superstore.”

A spokesman for Sainsbury’s refused to comment.

The club is millons in debt, loses a million a year and its future is totally dependant on the redevelopment and moving to a stadium where it can generate more income.

I think this will come as a relief to many Southend United fans.

The mistrust for the chairman aside, the football club does need to move from Roots Hall to stand any chance of being a successful football club.

You only need to look at where Swansea City were 10 years ago to realise that a new stadium can bring success... however, I feel that we will be paying for this move for a good many years to come, so whether we can emulate Swansea City in that same time-frame is open to considerable debate and in my eyes, is very doubtful... we'll see, I guess!!!

You'll be moaning about the time it's taken you to get there for a start, seeing as Fossetts is one of the least accessible places in the Borough to reach by car.
Secondly you'll be moaning about how bl00dy cold it is, what with there only being three sides to the stadium (plural stadia, by the way), as Ron has had to downsize his plans as he does not have a pot to p1ss in.

Yes, but all the money the club makes from the sale of roots hall, and the income from the new retail park, and the income from the casino, and the income from the hotel, can be invested in the team which should then be quite capable of moving up a couple of divisions.
Unless, of course, it is all structured so as the owners get all those profits and the team is left to muddle along as before.
