Permission to proceed with a Judicial Review - no explanation or outcome decided at this point

8 November 2022

The club can confirm that in the matter between West Northamptonshire Council and the Claimant regarding Sixfields and the East Stand, permission to proceed with the Judicial Review process has been given.

As has been previously explained, this is a matter of process between WNC and the Claimant and is not directly involving the club. The club, due to their ownership of the land leases, are named as an interested party so will continue to watch and respect the Court process. It should also be noted that this is also only permission to proceed with a Judicial Review and there is no explanation or outcome decided at this point.

For the club’s part, we have made significant progress relating to planning and remediation works required and continue to advance those matters.

It is frustrating, however this is not within the club’s control and this certainly delays progress on the East Stand until the matter is resolved due to the uncertainty of ownership of the land. It should also be made clear that any rival bidder for the ACV or wider land is working against the club and is not only standing in the way of progress but is possibly doing significant harm to the club's future.

The club will update supporters with information as it arrives, however the timing is in the hands of the court system, and having made an excellent start to the season, the club's full focus remains on the pitch.
