Use of Edge Hall Road as a Community Facility
1. Your chance to make a difference to Orrell and the surrounding areas
In conjunction with Orrell RUFC, Brighter Better Orrell would like to assess the level of public support there would be for returning the ground back to the community -for use by the whole community.

A few months ago, the Wigan Warriors moved their training base to Robin Park and since then there has been much speculation about the future of the Edge Hall Road site. Several different scenarios have been mentioned including Orrell Rugby Union Club moving to the site; a local community facility or the being sold for housing development - which would be the worst scenario for the people of Orrell.

Over the last six months Orrell RUFC have discussed various options with Wigan Warriors and have first refusal on a proposal. It has been suggested that Edge Hall Road could become a true community hub; pitches used by Orrell RUFC and other local sporting teams; various community groups & organisations using the clubhouse for meetings, events, etc.

Your answers will help us to assess whether there is enough support for us to put the case for a community centre forward to the current owners. It will also help us gauge whether there is enough support from the people of Orrell & surrounding areas for such a facility and for what uses; bearing in mind that a new community sports/health hub is being developed by Orrell & Winstanley Community Sports Club - which will also be the new home for both Orrell RUFC and Winstanley Park Cricket Club and will provide the community with access to rugby, cricket and other sports & well-being activities.

This is your chance to make a difference and define what the facility should become!

Couldn't this come into negotiations with latics?
Ultimately if lengehan could find a consortium to buy them and purchase the stadium, it may be more cost effective to rent them back Orrell rather than the DW? As likely to be a League 2 club next year, their gates would be less than 4/5k. What's the capacity of Orrell - surely that could make a decent little ground for them?

The official capacity is 5,000, but because of the state of the stadium which has been badly maintained since it was bought by IL, especially the poor state of the terracing, there is a restriction of 3,000 in force.

Actually, it was the intention of IL to sell the site for housing, but from what I understand the planning application was turned down by the Council on the grounds that access to the site would not be good enough for a housing development.

It would therefore appear to be the reason why IL has had to look at other alternatives in order to sell the site.
