Club opposes new development scheme

12:46pm, Thu 25th Feb 2021
Woking Football Club would like to place on record that it does NOT support the new development scheme proposed by Wayne Gold of GolDev.

The alternative planning application on/adjacent to Woking Football Club does not include a new stand which will be built out or equipped to EFL standard like we require, it has not been agreed by nor discussed with the Board of the football club. The new development proposed on site 1 also does not take into account any requirements for safety access to the stand.

The proposal on site 1 would hem the club in and prohibit any improvements to the club on the west side of the ground. What is required is a fully-funded West Stand with associated facilities, which this development does not provide.

Site 2, which involves a new development on properties behind the KRE, is accessed by the Kingfield Road entrance to the ground, and indicates the loss of the gravel parking which is required by the club. Again, there has been no discussion with the club and no indication of the level of traffic movements up a narrow access lane.

With no consultation with the largest stakeholder as to the two new developments, the Board feels that we have to oppose these developments with the extremely negative impact that they will have on Woking Football Club.

Woking fans are able to see some of the proposal at the following link, and submit their comments. www.goldev.com/woking-new-scheme
