Plans for Chesterfield FC’s £1.5m Community Hub Facility have taken a major step forward after five organisations agreed to become tenants of thearea in the Midlands Co-operative Community Stand at the Proact Stadium.
Derbyshire County Council, Seren Holdings and Club Taxis have all exchanged contracts with the club’s Community Trust while Leonard Cheshire Disability and MacIntyre are poised to follow suit.
Chesterfield FC Community Trust director John Croot said: “We’re delighted to announce that the five organisations have agreed to come on board. We’ve been working hard on this project behind the scenes and it’s great to see the plans now taking shape.
“Our plans for the facility include the creation of a play centre, café and classrooms. We said when we moved from Saltergate that we would make this a community stadium and we’re delivering on our promise.”
