Will we ever have a stadium to call our own?

Residents say "No" to Stadium plans

News on why Britwell residents are opposed to the proposed move to Kennedy Park.

Residents say "No" to Stadium plans

The Slough Observer reports

The re-generation scheme for Kennedy Park, Britwell has been questioned following Britwell residents expressing their feelings about the project.

Residents say that building a football stadium on Kennedy Park will not benefit those who live nearby. They have claimed that the project was about boosting the pockets of businessmen and The Slough Borough Council.

Their worries include traffic, crime and hooliganism.

Christine Howe, project manager talked about how Britwell could be improved if Slough Town FC were to move to Kennedy Park.

Ideas included key worker housing, improved shops and overall a better Kennedy Park.

Residents fear that once the stadium has been built, all the other plans will go to waste.

Joanne Camden, a Britwell resident said "When we do get the stadium Britwell will be forgotten about.

"Everybody is opposing the stadium. Britwell has a big hole and putting a football stadium there is not going to make it better.

"We have got enough hooliganism around here and it's not going to help it".

Some people couldn't see how this would benefit the youth in around Kennedy Park. One resident even went as far as describing the whole project a 'logistical nightmare'.

Mrs Howe went on to say "Without the football stadium we would not be able to generate the money to do all these things".
