Club await Warren Farm Appeal outcome

QPR are awaiting the outcome of Warren Farm opposers’ recent Supreme Court Appeal.

The club is looking to build a training ground while also provide new facilities for the local community.

However, its progress has been delayed by opposers’ appeals.

In March the opposers had a planning Judicial Review rejected but took up the 28-day option to submit a Supreme Court Appeal.

QPR and Ealing Council have since lodged an objection to this Appeal and are now awaiting the outcome.

CEO Lee Hoos told www.qpr.co.uk: “It is a frustrating time for the club, the fans, Ealing Council and the local community, who stand to benefit from the facilities we will be providing.

“We would expect to hear in the coming months whether our arguments against their Supreme Court submission have been successful.

“We will provide a further update as soon as we are in a position to do so.”

Councillor Julian Bell, Leader of Ealing Council, said: “The plans for Warren Farm will see millions of pounds invested in community sports facilities so it is disappointing to see delays, particularly as the opposers’ challenge has already been turned down by the High Court and the Court of Appeal.

“We remain committed to working alongside QPR to ensure that these plans go ahead.

“I am confident that we have secured the best deal for local people at no cost to local council tax payers.

“Once the site is up-and-running, QPR will implement a significant community sports development programme which focuses on encouraging local people, particularly young women, older people and people with disabilities, to get involved in sport.”

We would expect to hear in the coming months.
