Evidence against 30 people investigated over the disappearance of a £10.25m football club loan will be passed to prosecutors within months.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-53234625

I would imagine there will be a few shocks among those that are named.

Please just be careful what we all say on here. We don't need anymore grief from solicitors that we have already had.

It will be very interesting to see who the 30 are. But like Tel says, time will tell us who they are, without the need for any wild guesses.

Off topic really, but I wonder how many pages this redev thread would be now if we used the exeweb platform!

I will leave it with you to discover how many posts per page they have...

Northampton Town stand loan: £500k deal 'close'

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-52977873

A deal to help complete a multi-million pound football stand at the centre of a long-running financial debacle has been proposed, the BBC has learned.

Northampton Town FC was originally loaned £10m from Northampton Borough Council to refurbish its East Stand - before work stalled in 2014.

The whereabouts of the money has since been subject to a police investigation.

A council spokesman said the sale of neighbouring development land for about £500,000 was being negotiated.

The club would be given an option to buy council-owned land next to Sixfields stadium, on condition the grandstand was finished.

The BBC understands this also includes a deadline of 31 July to sign the relevant paperwork.

The deal would would see the council sharing the proceeds of any subsequent development with the club.

A £3m cap on the cost of completing the stand was also likely to be part of the deal.

Northampton Town was originally loaned more than £10m to refurbish the stand and redevelop the land, but the contractors - Buckingham Group - left the site in 2014 because they were not paid.

Work resumed the following year but when payments still were not made the contractors downed tools again, putting the development company responsible for the project - 1st Land Ltd - into administration.

A spokesman for the club, which has since got new owners, told the BBC: "The overriding principle, as it always has been, is the development of the East Stand and that is an agreed point with Northampton Borough Council.

"In addition, NBC will need to demonstrate best value for any disposal of the freehold land, which is also accepted by the Football Club."

He said the club "does feel it has made progress" in discussions.

The "missing millions" have been subject to a four-and-a-half year police investigation which has cost the council £1m in legal fees and led to multiple arrests and files prepared on 30 suspects.

The BBC understands the proposal is to split the proceeds of the land development equally between the council and the football club.

A council spokesman confirmed discussions were taking place and said it had been "no secret" the football club was keen to develop the land, and had "put forward ideas for a number of possible development schemes".

He added: "Should a development deal progress, then the East Stand of the stadium absolutely must be built before any further development takes place, and any deal must deliver best value for the tax payer."


Anybody heard if the Council and NTFC are progressing a deal, which requires a signature by 31/7/20?

Anybody at the BBC prepared to follow up the initial story?

What is the point? With this governments handling of the current crisis there will be no fans at matches for the the next season.

I'm looking to the long-term  future of the club not the next few months.

I suggest we see how supporters at the test games go in a few months time.

I understand that both the Queen and the Pope are being investigated as part of this but not Donald Trump as he is as honest as the day is long!

The most sensible suggestion (above all political posturing) I've heard so far is the potential rotation of seats for season ticket holders. I would rather watch half of the seasons home games rather than none. I think this is easily achievable with some form of social distancing model implemented. Stewards on the toilets pre match and half time, to ensure a set amount of people using them. Close the food kiosks.

The rotations to be made at half time, odd numbers will get to see the first halfs of matches, even numbers the second halfs until Christmas, then vice versa from the new year. Grin

Could be a problem if someone gets Sunderland, Ipswich, Posh and someone else gets Accrington, Rochdale & Fleetwood  Angry

Stewards on the toilets - what a nasty image.

And is what we are doing different to Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Holland...even the US Major League is being played behind closed doors....at Disneyworld Florida!

Nothing to do with "this Government" or "its" handling of the crisis.

His point might be that with other countries handling of it there is a chance stadiums will have fans in again a whole lot sooner than this country and its mockery of governence
