Warren Farm update: Objectors appeal latest rejection

QPR have been notified that objectors to the club’s plans for a new training ground at Warren Farm have submitted a Supreme Court Appeal to challenge last month’s rejection of their Appeal.

The club has 14 days to lodge an objection to this latest Appeal.

CEO Lee Hoos told www.qpr.co.uk: “This Appeal and the subsequent delay it will cause is naturally very disappointing news.

“However, it does not alter our determination and absolute focus to succeed in building a new training ground for the club as well as fantastic new facilities for the local community.

“Along with Ealing Council we will be objecting to the Appeal and, like all previous decisions in this process, are confident of a decision in our favour.

“We hope the process will be relatively quick but cannot confirm at this stage just how long this latest Appeal will delay us.”

Keith Townsend, Ealing Council’s executive director of environment and customer services, said: “These plans for Warren Farm will see millions of pounds invested in community sports facilities and we are committed to working alongside QPR to ensure that they go ahead.

“This Appeal is disappointing, particularly as it has already been turned down at the High Court and the Court of Appeal.

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

"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."

Along with Ealing Council we will be objecting to the Appeal.
