Southend FC stadium plans delayed again

Echo: Ron Martin today Ron Martin today

SOUTHEND United's ongoing saga to build a new stadium and retail park has hit yet another delay.

Earlier today, Southend Council's Development Control Committee met to discuss a renewed application from the Blues for the scheme.

The latest bid by club chairman Ron Martin hinged on how much money was going to be given to the council as a sweetner to spend on Southend's town centre - with £6million already proposed but this was downscaled to £2.25m in the new proposals.

The offer came in for criticism from councillors on the panel, who voted unanimously to defer the application until March to give council officers time to assess how much damage the retail park could cause to the town centre and whether £2.2m is enough to offset that damage.

Looks like £3.75M has already been spent of the proposed £6M he was going to give the council. Council face a choice of go for the £2.25M now offered or probably get nothing at all when the scheme fails. Somehow this stadium probably won't ever get started anyway, as in another year or so any little funds he has will have gone & Sainsbury's will just start building their store at Roots Hall with the club wound up. Hope to be wrong on that but fear its the most likely outcome.

The council don't encourage shoppers to the town anyway what with ridiculous parking charges high council tax for businesses many go to Lakeside anyway so why should SUFC stump up 6million what's wrong with good old competition?

Sadly, the stadium is never likely to be built with Ron Martin at the helm.
There must be a very real danger that Sainsburys, who have already paid millions to keep the tax man at bay, will evict the club and leave it with no ground, as happened to Brighton. Unlike Brighton, I am not sure that there is a white knight ready to step in.
Could the Council bypass Martin, as the printed edition of the Echo on 20th December was suggesting? We might have to settle for a small "Community Stadium" like Col U's, which is a good deal smaller than even the current reduced Roots Hall, but that would be better than no ground at all.

So you can nor bring yourself to admit Stobarts pay more tax, pay a lot to charity and are creating job's.

With the nimby brigade (of which you are a leading light that is not very bright) will spout "facts" that are made up in your heads or are actually real genuine facts but distorted and twisted to siut your own view.
Who pays more tax and who pays more to charity are interesting questions.

On a straightforward answer I would guess that Stobart Group, with a corporation tax bill of £1.344 million for the year to Feb 2012, do indeed pay more tax than Jayman. However if you really want to compare like with like then surely you would have to take into account that Stobarts employ 5,500 people. So that works out at just over £244 in corporation tax per employee. For the same period if Jayman earned £10,000 then he would be paying double that.
It is not completely clear from page 34 of the 2012 annual report, exactly how much Stobart Group gave to charity. That they are involved at a local and national level in not in question, but how much the company actually 'wrote cheques for' is not noted. From reading the report I can't decide if the £120k or the £150k or the £50k or the £27k was actually money from Stobart Group or was money raised by them and others at events at which Stobart Group were involved. I'd have thought that if it was in the report then it would be from them, but the wording is not 100 percent clear.
Perhaps Max would be kind enough to tell us the amount, as he has said they pay a lot to charity and I am sure he would not want to spout 'facts' unless they were actually real genuine facts.

Read the article and you can work it out yourself.

I'm not doing the maths for you.

Trying to work out how much I give, as I do a number of those monthly direct debit things, but now I'm on a pension a few will be canceled.

Don't think I will carry on with the 21-12 End of the World one!

what needs to be done is southend united stay at roots hall, and rebuild a 15000 seater stadium, and sainsburys build there store at fossets farm, and they take over ron martins development, then ron can just keep things small,
not so much of a outlay!!
