Etihad Campus Plans Go Up A Gear

Etihad Campus Plans Go Up A Gear



The stunning regeneration in East Manchester surrounding Manchester City Football Club continues apace...

This morning The Blues announced the submission of a planning application for a proposed first team training and youth development centre on land acquired near The Etihad Stadium.

It's a nightmare scenario for the sports craparazzi who have been able to photograph City training with ease at Carrington.

Not content with ruining football, City have set aside 5.5 acres of the land for community use which will centre around a new 6th Form College.

City announced:

'The Club has today submitted a planning application following a six-week period of public consultation with local residents, fans and other interested parties, for a proposed youth development and first team Academy in the Openshaw West area of East Manchester.

'The Club's exhibition, which showcases the proposals and was a central component to the public consultation, attracted in excess of 7000 visitors online and in person and revealed a 97% approval rating from respondents. Opinions of the residents of East Manchester helped to shape the Club's planning application, the completion of which is expected towards the end of the year.

'The proposed development of up to 80 acres of brown field land diagonally opposite to the Etihad Stadium and acquired by the Club over the past two years, would, should planning permission be granted, form part of the Etihad Campus as announced in early July this year.'

While we regenerate East Manchester and create jobs, I hear our neighbours in Stretford are giving Lou Macari's chippy a fresh paint job. Well, that would get more coverage on Sky News and the BBC than this is anyway. =)

While our club cares about the city of Manchester and it's occupants, our neighbors are busily selling themselves in Asia in order to try and lower the debt. Not only are we ruining football, but I can guarantee you "stories" will come out about local shops being robbed of employees looking for better jobs, and then they go out of business and end up penniless and on the streets. Or something like that.

That should finally put the "Oh your owners will get bored and walk away" arguments to bed once and for all :)
