AFC Wimbledon Cleared to Build New Stadium on Plough Lane

AFC Wimbledon Cleared to Build New Stadium on Plough Lane

Posted by Lady Wimbledon | 28 September 2016 | Rumour Has It

We can hardly contain our excitement, as news broke yesterday that Secretary of State, Sajid Javid decided not to intervene with AFC Wimbledon‘s planning application.

This means, after 20 months of anguish since the initial application was submitted, the 11,000 seat stadium can finally be built on our home ground!

Chief Executive Erik Samuelson said: “We would like to thank the very many people who have supported us in this and previous campaigns, in particular by writing to the relevant authorities to urge approval of the application.  Such support is a sign of the continued determination to return to Wimbledon that has sustained us over the time since we re-formed.

“After so many years in exile, the Dons are coming home!”

Leader of Merton Council, Councillor Stephen Alambritis, said: “This is fantastic news for the club and for Merton. We have always supported the return of AFC Wimbledon to home turf and now they and their legions of dedicated fans can look forward to the reality. We will also benefit from new homes and business opportunities for the area which is very exciting too.”
