AFC Wimbledon have today gained the green light to proceed with a planning application for a new stadium at Plough Lane.

What could see a potential return to the club’s ‘spiritual home’ is now one step closer following the independent inspector’s report which concluded that the Plough Lane site could in fact be used for ‘Sporting Intensification’.

This endorsement of Merton Council’s proposed use of the site means the club can now take the next and necessary steps to submit a formal planning application for the site to be home to a football stadium.

Public consultations will obviously form part of this, and the club and it’s partner Galliard Homes have been preparing for these, and dates should be announced shortly. These consultations will be the first opportunity to view the details plans that have been drawn up for Plough Lane.

Chief Executive Erik Samuelson said of the development to the Official Site.

‘We are delighted with the inspector’s conclusions. We can now move to the next stage of the process. There is still a long way to go and a lot of hard work to be done, but this is a significant moment in our plans to return to Wimbledon.’

This site is looking for bloggers, so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
