Kennedy Park

Rebels set for new home
by Nathan on 01/09/2003

News about the possible new site for STFC's new ground.

Rebels look for new home

Slough Borough Council have earmarked an area of land in the Britwell area for re-generation and has identified a possible new site on which Slough Town FC could build a new ground. This is an ideal place for a ground, as it has good transport links and lots of room for future expansion.

The council have been in negotiations with Rebels chairman, Martyn Deaner and this has led to an outline agreement to allow Slough Town FC to create a new ground for the Club. Taking things at face value, this could prove to be a long term solution to the Club's existing problem's.

The site is located south of Long Furlong Drive in Britwell, in what is currently Kennedy Park (Click here for a map / Click here for an aerial photo). The land is currently home to one of Slough's three skateboard parks.

The project appears to be part of an overall scheme to re-generate the Britwell, Northborough and Kennedy Park areas. Local residents have expressed favourable opinions on the scheme, although it is not known if they have been made aware that this includes the building of a football ground.

The project leaves scope for the inclusion of a hotel or other such facility, with the intention that this could be used by local businesses, generating extra revenue.

The council are currently canvassing the opinions of the local residents and businesses and their feedback will be discussed at a council meeting at the Town Hall on Wednesday, 10th September at 6:30 PM. This meeting is an open meeting and residents are free to attend. Whether this openness extends to Rebels fans is anyone's guess.

Further information can be obtained by contacting the Britwell Scheme at The Centre in Farnham Road, or by e-mailing britwellscheme@slough.gov.uk

Kennedy Park Gallery
Nathan and Paul took a trip to Kennedy park this evening (1st September 2003) to see what the area was like and were impressed by the space and potential that the park has.

The park is very large with a raised "hill" area at the Eastern end. To the West, is a flat area with a couple of large, well established trees, a skateboard park and a brick wall with a couple of basketball hoops on it. This area is easily large enough to contain a large stadium, complete with hotel complex and a sizeable car park.

Overall, we were impressed by the space and the views across Slough from the top of the "hill" were quite impressive.

Below are some photos of the park.
