We have received several emails about the car park for next season . The current status remains unchanged from the information given on the 15th May 2017. Permits will not be on sale until mid-July after we have had a further update from the developers.
Please do not email us for further updates as there will be no new information until the permits are ready for sale in Mid July, as we do not have the resources or time to respond individually to enquries for further information.
Any developments will be firstly posted on here.
Statement from Paul Holmes - Wednesdayite Director and Chairman - Car Park 2017/18 - Issued 15th May 2017
As previously advised the land is now owned by Penistone Hillsborough LLP - a Limited Liability Partnership linked to Eccelsfield based property developers Jaguar Estates Limited and Bridges Fund Management, and for the past 24 months has been purchasing adjacent land to make the site a better development prospect. They have now secured the land and will shortly be applying for planning permission. Published information about the development can be found here
I and the developers expected the current season to be our last with our lease terminating on 31 May 2017.  However I have been able to agree the principal terms to a new lease to at least 31 DECEMBER 2017. Beyond that the lease can be terminated with notice, I do not expect us to have it for a significant period past the new year.
I will be finalising the lease over the coming months and seeing if we can get further months agreed, but everything will be in the hand of the planners.
This then gives us a dilemna , do we sell permits just to 31/12/17 and then have it as a cash only car park if we get any extention or do we sell permits for the season with bank transfer refunds being made if we have to termnate early, We will be seeking car park permit holders views on this in June. We don't expect to be able to put permits on sale until sometime in July.
Your car park volunteers have no further details so we request you accept this and don't ask for further information, as you will just be directed to this webpage, email enquires will be also directed back to this article to save us time.
So Good News - we have the car park for you to use for part of next season.
