Big problem for Solihull Moors ?

Solihull Moors face move to new ground after council decision

Solihull Moors are facing an upheaval over their ground - after the council earmarked it for development.

The National League high-fliers are now looking for a new site after Solihull Council made their 10-acre home the subject of a land grab.

The local authority is allowed to order them to leave as they need extra room for the Jaguar Land Rover factory which sits adjacent to the 5,000-capacity Armco Arena.

The area, which also used to be home to Birmingham City ’s former Damson Park training ground, has undergone a huge transformation - all bar this small parcel of land upon which the stadium sits.

The plant has 5,000 workers and there are proposals to increase that figure by up to 25 per cent during the next few years.

Solihull Council described the future financial well-being of Jaguar Land Rover as "critical" in its local plan.

A significant six-figure sum has already been ploughed into the facilities at the site - but the council do have an obligation to find the club another home to the same standard as they one they currently use.

The plan suggests the club could need to quit its base within the next three years, ramping up the pressure on the council to find Neal Ardley’s men a new home.

A wonderful opportunity for Solihull Moors, if managed correctly.

Just like our current ground situation is a wonderful opportunity?

We already have a new Stadium, it just needs some co-operation & some collaboration between parties, with a common purpose now to finish the job.

If any evidence is needed that we should preserve what we have, just look at the situation/upheaval that Solihull Moors now face...

There is no reason to suggest that the Moors shouldn't benefit by a ground move but that will not be a five minute exercise.

Do you have any evidence that all those involved want that outcome?

Oh dear.
If the can find land (not simple by any means) then it could be good for them (assuming compensation right)

Seems wrong the council can do this to help a private company

"Seems wrong the council can do this to help a private company"

Most councils help private companies, especially ones that bring money into the local economy and have a role in culture/society.

They are currently being linked with the Alexander Stadium after the commonwealth games it will need a use . Sounds a bit extreme but would fit in with there ambitions to get into the EFL and is not too far from Solihull .
