Seems to be standard practice these days to try and force planning applications through. And what money on the community football bit disappearing at some point.

Dangerous and derelict condition and a major fire risk and unsafe yet I bet it is still in a better state than Rockingham Road which is still standing!

It is a ground I never saw a game at but interesting to see what it is like. Waste of a good stadium sadly.

Among the oddest of my football experiences, as I recall: parking in then walking through Irthlingborough, a tiny village, to discover a big football ground laid out at the foot of a slope. Can't say my memories of Nene Park are good. I saw the team I used to support beaten there twice (including one of just five defeats in a title-winning season) and a decidedly humdrum Fourth Division game between R&D and Shrewsbury Town. Razing the place does seem a terrible waste.

The demolition of Nene Park has been put on hold with the owner agreeing to meet interested parties according to the Northampton Chronicle.

This is being driven by Tom Pursglove who is the Conservative MP for Corby & East Northamptonshire.

Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

No idea what Keith Cousins redevelopment plans for the site are. No appeal was lodged on the previous shopping complex planning refusal. The Stadium site,after the demolition, now has a hoarding all round it and Sunday morning car boot activity continues in the rear car park.

A refusal was always likely given the Lakeside development just down the road.

Yes it was very strange for Cousins to pursue a retail/cinema/hotel development once Rushden Lakes received approval so he spent a lot of money on planning fees/consultant costs which is all dead money. Ironic really when he received planning approval back in 2008 for a 140 bed hotel in the front car park which he abandoned, apparently, after the hotel operator pulled out. The permission on that approval has long expired. By demolishing the Stadium at least he has capped his on going costs on business rates/management charges on an empty facility.
