Warren Farm update: Objectors appeal latest rejection

The objection is to plans for a new training ground and community facilities at Warren Farm.

The council and QPR plan to lodge a objection to this latest appeal within the statutory 14 day period of notice of the Appeal.

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 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."

Lee Hoos QPR chief executive said: “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.”
