.............unless you have inside knowledge , we don't know if it will be called in . You say it WILL but then list the reasons it won't be.
The amount of consultation the club have done should negate any local objections and unless there are dark forces at work within LCC I don't think the govt. will see any need to call it in ,despite the size of the project.
My concern would be the delay that would be caused by the public enquiry that would probably be part of any calling-in process. Fingers crossed we avoid such a scenario.
No, he states it will and then goes on to say why it will not be anything to worry about.
The official line is:
The secretary of state will normally only do this if the application conflicts with national policy in important ways, or is nationally significant.
A project of this size, on an area of land that's within the 2003 remit of the world heritage site, absolutely falls into both of the categories that gets called in.
We genuinely need to just get over our own opinions on matters like this, it seems to happen with everything that happens with the club.
That way, when it gets called in, there won't be gnashing of teeth and people losing their mind at the club/LCC/central.
And if they decide it's not important that we're building a massive national level stadium on a plot of land we shouldn't be building on without highest level scrutiny? Sound, it'll shave 6-18 months off the build time.
