Burnham: Housing site "will secure football club's future"
9:00am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in Local News
Footballers face an uncertain future unless a large housing estate including a new stadium goes ahead, their club has warned.
Developer Pigeon has offered Burnham Ramblers a new site more than double the size of their current ground in Leslie Field, Burnham.
But it is only likely to be built if Maldon District Council earmarks land for at least 300 homes to give a big enough development, said club secretary Shaun Pugh.
The council has split up the 450 homes planned for Burnham into three sites, following residents’ concerns about having one large estate.
Mr Pugh said this had left the club “out on a limb."
