Public meeting for Wimbledon Football Stadium plan

Published: 26 January 2015

Wandsworth Council has arranged a public meeting on Monday 2 February focussing on plans for a new 20,000 seater football stadium and residential development on Plough Lane.

The scheme would be built on the Wimbledon dog track site which is located just over the borough boundary in Merton.  

The session will give Wandsworth residents an opportunity to ask questions and have their say.

When: 7pm to 8.30pm, Monday 2 February

Where:  Drama Hall, Burntwood School, Burntwood Lane, SW17 0AQ.

Representatives from the development company behind the scheme will attend the meeting to explain the proposal and how it will affect local people.

The event will be chaired by Wandsworth Council’s deputy leader Cllr Jonathan Cook. He said:

“A stadium and residential development of this scale will have significant impacts on surrounding communities and place major demands on the transport network, schools and other services. The site is just over the borough boundary and this is a valuable opportunity for our residents to scrutinise the proposals and raise concerns.”

A formal planning application has been submitted to Merton Council and the documents are now available on Merton’s website. Local people can submit their views online now or after the meeting.

Wandsworth Council will submit its views on the scheme following the next planning applications committee on February 18.
