Leave Rec as it is
Perhaps the following is a different aspect re The Recreation Ground and Bath Rugby.
Whilst I am not a follower of rugby, their present occupation of a part of The Rec is quite acceptable to most Bath citizens
However, it should be remembered that our forebears gave their shares in The Rec to the then Bath City Council for free on the understanding that the terms of the covenant were honoured in perpetuity for recreational purposes as well sporting activities, with no one sport dominating and for the enjoyment of the citizens of Bath.
This must surely be honoured or are we to expect reparation in respect of the donations made on our behalf?

I am absolutely sure that our forbears did not expect their generosity to be substituted for a field on the outskirts of the city.
How about the rugby club having a new superb custom- built stadium and premises on the ex-MOD land at Ensleigh, including ample parking, leaving The Rec as the original covenant?
