Club Relocation – Update

I am delighted to report that the project to relocate the club continues to progress in a satisfactory manner. It is now anticipated that the club will relocate during the summer of 2018 ready for season 2018/19.

The new pitch area has been fully prepared and the seeding of the new pitches is planned to occur ( hopefully ) in March. This will allow the new grass at least 12 months to fully mature prior to our first games.

The new pitch-posts and floodlight stanchions have been installed. Archaeological works continue on the site of the new clubhouse and these are expected to be completed by the end of Q1. Interestingly it is believed that our new area may well have been inhabited 6,000 years ago after some old 1st team kit belonging to Mike Turner was unearthed . Members will have seen that works have commenced on the new access road from Cherry Orchard Way.

The updated layout for the new site has been submitted to Rochford District Council for full planning approval. This approval is expected during April. It is anticipated that the new clubhouse construction works will then commence and take between 9 and 12 months. This will result in the clubhouse being completed by the middle of 2018.

Discussions continue with Henry Boot Limited (the developer) with regard to the interior design and finishes for the clubhouse. The new clubhouse will be of similar design to the existing one but with enhanced changing rooms, function room, kitchen and a modern bar.

A significant amount of legal work remains to be undertaken with regard to the new clubhouse lease and pitch licence but the key principles for those agreements have been established in the Heads of Terms which were agreed at the end of 2016. The club fully expects to extend its clubhouse lease back to a period of 60 years.

Our steering committee has been extremely pleased by the way that Southend Borough Council and the developer have sought to build the club’s comments into the programme of works, a very positive working relationship has been established.

Overall the relocation should provide the club’s members with some of the best rugby facilities in the country – this will help us to further enhance our reputation of being one of the top clubs in the region.
