Allianz Park, West Stand Public Consultation Flyer – allianz-park-west-stand-consultation
ALLIANZ PARK, WEST STAND PUBLIC CONSULTATION – As some of you are aware, Saracens have already been engaging with local community stakeholder groups and other stadium user groups such as SBH over the past weeks and months in relation to the rebuilding of the West Stand. Saracens are now keen to engage more widely with the local community on the plans and are proposing to hold public exhibitions in November on the following dates:
- Thursday 10 November, 7pm – 9pm, Fez Lounge, Allianz Park
- Friday 11 November, 6pm – 9pm, Fez Lounge, Allianz Park
- Saturday 12 November, 9am – 11.30am, Olympic Bar, Allianz Park
Saracens will also be writing to all households within the Saracens CPZ area around Allianz Park inviting them to attend. Can I please ask as many of you as possible to attend one of these sessions as it is very important that the wider athletics membership take an active interest in this very important project rather than it be left to just the club officers to fly the flag for athletics facilities in the Borough.
