Yeah I haven't had any luck yet, if that is the case I am just trying to work out who is now in ownership.
There was a covenant on the land when iit was sold to the LFEPA. I asked some FOIs about it over 10 years ago:
(3) Were there any covenants regarding community use attaching to the transfer of this site to LFEPA?
Under the terms of an agreement made at the same time (in pursuance of s106 of the Town and County Planning Act 1990) the Authority is to allow members of the public access to the multi purpose all weather sports pitch and changing facilities during the following times
(a) 6.00pm to 9.00pm Monday to Friday inclusive
(b) 10.00am to 8.00pm Saturday, Sunday and on Public Holidays (except Christmas and Boxing Days) and
(c) at all other times when the sports pitch is not required for use by the Authority between 10.00am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday
The Authority is also to provide a booking system which also includes a provision to charge for the use of facilities.
The Authority is entitled to withdraw use of the multi purpose sports pitch and changing facilities from the public for necessary repair and maintenance or reasonable improvements or alterations or for any reason demonstrably beyond the control of the Authority.
Presumably if the site was sold on the covenants should have passed on with it? Either way an FOI request to the LFEPA should get to the bottom of it.
