Southwark’s Playing Pitch Strategy
Southwark Council are the freeholders of the Green Dale land, including the astro turf pitch. They leased the land to DHFC for 21 years up until March 2015 when the lease ran out.
The current (March 2016) status is that Hadley have no lease of the land but have an informal agreement with Southwark that they have control of the astro turf pitch and that Southwark have control of the grassy meadow area of Green Dale. For Southwark to get the lease back they would need to prove that DHFC who lease the land have not complied with the lease in some way (we think).
In December 2018 a new lease was drawn up between Southwark Council and DHFC allowing them to use an area larger than the astro turf pitch for football and fitness.
