In 2012, Darlington FC CIC purchased 2 temporary demountable seated grandstands from Star Events Group Ltd. The grandstands were constructed at the northern end of Heritage Park under temporary planning permission. The current owner of the stands is Darlington FC.
Bishop Auckland AFC have recently sent a request to Darlington FC that we make a decision on the future of the stands during this close season.
In the absence of a buyer for the stands it has been suggested that ownership of the stands may be signed over to Bishop Auckland AFC. However, it has been deemed appropriate to comprehensively re-examine all options before taking such a decision. The report, downloadable here, outlines considerations in detail of the various options for the stands.
Please take the time to read the report. This is your opportunity to record your opinion and feedback. All responses will be presented to the DFC board and taken into account, alongside financial & future ground development strategy considerations when making the final decision.
The end date for feedback is Tuesday, June 5th.
