At the end of last week, Queens Park Rangers confirmed that work could now commence on our Warren Farm training ground development after the Supreme Court rejected the attempts to overturn the planning permission we received.

As fans will know, Hanwell Community Forum sought permission to appeal the planning permission based on whether or not the Council had acted appropriately when granting the decision. The High Court and the Court of Appeal had ruled in our favour previously, and the Supreme Court decision is now the end of the process and it has been rumbling on for a number of years.

The BBC quoted chief executive Lee Hoos as saying.

“We’re delighted that all legal avenues to frustrate this process have now been exhausted. A new training ground, which brings together the first team and the academy, is an important part of a strategic long-term plan for the club.”

Hoos confirmed that the delays had been incredibly ‘frustrating’ for the club at all levels and he was now looking forward to getting the development going properly, as well as the Community Trust work that would flow from it.
