I do not think Chestnuts with their experience and knowledge would do a "Lavaflow" and go into a  multi-million pound project without a business plan. !

  Do some people realy think Chestnuts are unawhere of possible pit-falls.?  Leave it to the experts !

IDavid Newton says they have nothing concrete yet....  :-\



Surely they wont need the concrete till they start building ;D (sorry that was a childish and imature thing for a 55yo to do).

They haven't gone into anything yet, apart from keeping BUFC going, and they've done a great job there but the club is still losing money.
The business plan is based on nothing concrete, according to the business plan itself, which is on the main BUFC site.
It looks like its based on hoping that enough organisations will chip in a few quid when the time comes...is that really going to happen?
It would be interesting to know how much money the business plan needs to become viable, and how much cash is available from various grants etc.
A business plan needs costing, if these figure have been calculated then why not attach them to the plan so  that we all know where we stand  8)

They've got plenty of concrete stacked up on steel frames around York St  :dan

In a very complex development like this involving third partys E K no canny business man would make his strategy available . (thats one of the arts of business). I think most people now realise what a complicated and delicate transaction is involved in the proposed move.  If you want an example of financial strategy being banded in public you need look no futher than BUFC matchday programme dated 17 April 2006.

Newton wont keep paying 72k a year for the ground, basicly if he cut it out the budget we would be looking at a team meltdown.
