New Southwark Plan – Area Visions and Site Allocations: WE NEED YOUR HELP!


new Southwark Plan header

Southwark Council are in the process of drafting new site allocations and area visions for the New Southwark Plan. Included within this was an allocation for the existing Champion Hill stadium site including the land around the stadium (car wash, car park) and the land on which the stadium buildings sit (health club, bar, changing rooms etc.) but specifically excluding the football pitch. The important bit here is that development of all land except the pitch means that the Club would have to function without any of the basic ancillary elements (turnstiles, stands, bar, changing rooms) that are essential to be able to function at even a basic level of football let alone one at Isthmian level or above. Whilst we welcome the inclusion of the Champion Hill site in the proposals (in the sense that there is an understanding from the Council that the site can be redeveloped in the future), the current proposals do not have sufficient consideration for the Football Club and its ability to function properly. We urge all supporters to take the opportunity to make comments on this document by 7 July.

Dulwich Hamlet Football Club to celebrate International Women’s Day with special one-off kit

Dulwich Hamlet Football Club will once again celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) this Saturday, 11 March 2017, against Merstham FC (kick off 3pm). The day will be an opportunity to celebrate the contribution that women have made to Dulwich Hamlet FC and our local community.

To commemorate the occasion the Club have adopted the campaign’s theme of #BeBoldForChange and commissioned a special one-off purple kit in lieu of their famous pink and blue colours. Purple is the primary colour used for IWD because it stands for justice and dignity. The kit will also feature the logos of IWD’s charity partners, Catalyst and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).

Revised MOU signed with Meadow

mou

In 2015 we signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Hadley Property Group. This set out the key points of our working relationship with them including common understanding and commitments on key aspects of the proposed development and the transition to fan ownership. With the change from Hadley Property Group to Meadow in October 2016 we felt it was necessary to revisit the MOU and update to reflect the current situation.

We’re now pleased to say that both parties have signed a revised agreement which retains and builds upon all the main sentiments of the original MOU. The updated MoU emphasises how vital the planning application is to the future of the club.  A brand new, fit-for-purpose stadium, a facility for local schools and the community groups, and a sustainable, debt-free future for our club, owned by the fans.  If you haven’t already, please take 10 minutes to tell the Planning Inspectorate – by 7 March – why you #SupportourStadium.
