Torquay United chairman Keith Richardson has distanced himself from plans to build a new stadium.
Torquay have played at Plainmoor since 1910
Richardson revealed discussions are ongoing to end former chairman Chris Roberts' association with the club.
Roberts was in talks to move the club from Plainmoor to a new stadium at the Recreation Ground on Torquay seafront.
"The stadium is why he (Roberts) came here. That's his baby. His involvement with the stadium is a stand-alone job,"
Richardson told the Herald Express.
"It's a property deal. It's pie in the sky. He's got this vision of a stadium, it's his dream, but how many people has he got to convince? How much would it cost? Who's going to pay for it? Who's going to give him the land?
"In terms of Chris Roberts, we're in discussions about an exit strategy. He's not got the backing of the London directors to run the show."
