Sadly, I cannot think of a single plot in our entire region more suited to conversion into housing than Gigg Lane; it ticks every single box. Dale knows this and that's his only interest.

Gigg Lane was donated to Bury Football Club in 1895 by the Earl Of Derby.
There are covenants on the land that state that the land can only be used for sporting purposes.
I rent land from both the Earl of Wilton and Earl of Derby estates and have spoken to the land agents about Gigg Lane in the past, and asked them their opinion about Gigg Lane being sold off for housing .... at which point they just laugh and say "in someones dreams".
Edward Stanley 19th Earl of Derby is alive and kicking, and and avid sports fan.
Gigg Lane, housing ,,, not a chance.

When it's been empty (more than usual) for a couple more years, no one is there to maintain it and it falls into disrepair, what then?

The council wont want, much less allow a derelict site in its borough. Covenants or not, it could be subject to a CPO and if there's no one there to play sport on it or who can afford to...

What was the name of the land at the side of Turton Road? There was a 'stand on the land' campaign by way of protest from the locals? Two brothers left their land for the recreational benefit of the people of the area and placed a covenant on it so that it couldn't ever be built on? Similar story to the one you describe at Gigg Lane. The land at the side of Turton Road is, of course, a housing estate now. Also, given Borris's 'Build, Build, Build' blather, and the announcement this morning that planning permission's about to be handed out like packets of sandwiches then I'm not sure it looks all that good for The Gigg, sadly.

The difference being that the Earl Of Derby and the Earl Of Derby Estate is alive and kicking -- hopefully they will recall their "gift with reservation" if someone breaks the restrictive convenants on the land.

Either he's having a mental breakdown or he thinks he is going to win Bury over by going full Trump on them.

If that discombobulating collection of wordage is a genuine expression of the Bury steering committee, and if I was a Bury supporter, I would consider seriously the option of packing my bags and leaving the ship before the rats block the gangways.
To any Bury fan who might be reading this: I have no antagonism towards you or your fellow punters. After all, BWFC came within a gnat's whisker of being in a similar situation to you. I wish you well but ...
