Club Development: A letter from the Club Chairperson

Dear Member,

The Club’s Strategic Plan 2013 – 2016, unanimously adopted by the membership, set out a clear priority around development of the Club’s facilities. The Club Executive is working to develop options for the members to consider at a general meeting. Those options will comprehend the question of the direction the members might decide to take as regards the facility which has been developed in Benildus College, development of Pairc de Burca and any other options identifiable at this time. The Executive intends to consult the members of the Club comprehensively on these matters in the coming couple of months. The plan is to provide full information to members as regards all aspects of the options for development including financial and technical details. The Executive is committed to designing a consultation process which will facilitate full understanding of the matter by all members.

In the meantime the Government has announced a Sports Capital Grant Programme for 2014 with a closing date for application of 28th February 2014. The Executive is convinced that Kilmacud Crokes GAA Club must have its ‘hat in the ring’ for allocations under this Grant Scheme. A proposal, without prejudice to any decisions the members might take as to what actually happens, for funding to support development of Pairc  de Burca is being submitted to the Sports Capital Programme. This may succeed in securing an allocation or it may not. In any event, it will be the members who decide in a general meeting whether to proceed to develop Pairc de Burca.

The requirements of the Sports Capital Programme are that any application must be accompanied by a valid planning application for the project. The Club is therefore applying for planning permission for a project to re-align the avenue on the Shopping Centre side, extend Pairc de Burca and carry out comprehensive drainage and upgrade work on the pitch surface. The application will also include a proposal to Flood Light Pairc de Burca. Clearly, any planning approval received will not lead to initiation of this project unless the members decide to do so. This planning application is being made in order to meet the requirements and timelines of the Sports Capital Grant Scheme 2014. Planning approval for this project does not commit the Club to execute it.

The members will notice standard planning notices appearing on the Glenalbyn site in the coming days and the context for those notices is as above [Note : a copy of the actual planning application will be held in the Club Office for perusal by members]. I look forward in the coming period to engaging with the membership so that we can together make the key decisions as regards the development direction of our great Club.

Kevin Foley

Chairperson

Kilmacud Crokes GAA Club.
