The statement I posted was the actual statement made by R&R. The statement you refer to is the conditions required by WST which needs to be agreed by anyone who wishes to take over ownership of the club.

Total aside but I love Fulham's ground. The history of it, the atmosphere. a proper ground which is a million miles better than some of the more recent flatpack efforts.

I'd love us to redevelop The Racecourse and to retain that sort of character too.

Brentford’s new 17,500 stadium cost £71m.

York City’s 8,000 capacity stadium cost £44m according to Wikipedia.

Something similar to what Blackpool have done would be good barring the temporary stand

'Hollowed ground' are the key words here oswestryred.
I believe that 'The Turf' was built during the second period of renovation of the course, sometime between 1795 and 1819.
Certainly, The Turf was already built and recorded on maps and in local archives by 1819, and the new course was definitely being advertised in the Chester newspapers by 1800, but there is a possibility that the course itself was set out and the Wrexham Races were taking place at Y Cae Ras in the 1630's. That gives us 'at least' 220 years of sporting heritage and possibly 380+ years.
The course, The Turf and the history/heritage of the town and club itself are pretty much inseparable imo.

After reading the Wrexham.com article about LDP2 and its lack of support from councillors and the establishing inspectorate, is it a good idea to lobby about getting the racecourse included again?

I don't think it was included in ldp2.

Good idea.
The original petition did make some headway but the council still didn't designate the course as a protected site as far as I'm aware.

Once again the club is the only thing that puts this town on the map. The council owes the club big time for its ‘soft power’ projection across many media outlets.
The only reason people have heard of this place is from the football & not anything culturally the council have ever achieved.
