THERE are just 48 hours to go until Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s public consultation about the future of the Linford Christie Stadium closes.
QPR supporters, local residents and stakeholders across W12 have been taking part to say there should be a major development involving QPR – option 3 in the consultation – to keep the club in W12 for the long term and provide new community sports facilities for local residents.
The consultation began at the end of March and QPR’s full consultation response asking for a 30,000 seater community stadium was published in April.
QPR CEO Lee Hoos said: “There are now just 48 hours to keep QPR in W12.
“This is about making sure that QPR has a sustainable future in the area that has been home for a hundred years. We love our home but unfortunately it is just too small and old for the club to survive here in the long term, and redevelopment on site is not possible.
“A stadium with all the best characteristics and much-improved community sports facilities would keep QPR and QPR in the Community Trust in W12 for the long term and allow us to do more to benefit the local community.
“We’re very grateful to all those QPR supporters and local residents and stakeholders who have taken part already to say they want QPR to stay in the area.
“We urge everyone to take part over the next 48 hours if they haven’t done so already. The Linford Christie Stadium serves the whole of London so it is not just local residents who can take part.”
