I’m pretty sure an indoor training pitch is necessary for Cat 2.
Did you look at the overview in the planning application? Whilst it maybe not specifically in this plan which only covers the accomodation buildings, it seems it is at least in the pipeline.

Looks like there would be opportunities for a building like that to bring in some income with a bit of creative thinking.

Where is the overview please? There are a number of documents but I cannot see that particular one.

I did note a small ‘cafe’ included by the artificial pitch, which would probably be more of a kiosk and aimed at parents / spectators of the academy matches. Additionally there is ‘changing’, in the same location so maybe an idea to sell the use of the artificial pitch to local clubs etc. I’m not sure how the Club could generate an income from the main building however, unless they merely rent rooms out, which is plausible.

Sorry, it's listed as the Masterplan Layout. Second last document on the list you posted. If you look at No.3 on the key, it states an 80x50 covered 3g pitch.

Whilst to me and a lot of us Grecians this is exciting news particularly with looking to put in place an ability to upgrade the academy so the theiving Barstewards of the premiership may have to pay more to steal our nippers, how would it be funded? T

here is mention of Grants etc and we do have the Ollie money and the Ben Chrisene money (I am sure you can discount any money for Ethan), but this can only cover so much and as someone else on another thread pointed out the SJP pitch needs a bit of TLC given to it which will cost and we have to fund through the current Covid crisis, and we have to improve the squad then maintain the squad at higher financial levels should we get promoted, so what sort of percentage would the club have to fund and what would we get from grants etc.
