Development Plan Update

Woking Football Club would like to place on record that it does NOT support the new development scheme proposed by Wayne Gold of GolDev.

The alternative planning application on/adjacent to Woking Football Club does not include a new stand which will be built out or equipped to EFL standard as we require nor has it been agreed by or discussed with the Board of the football club. The new development proposed on site 1 also does not take into account any requirements for safety access to the stand.

The proposal on site 1 would hem the club in and prohibit any improvements to the club on the west side of the ground. What is required is a fully-funded West Stand with associated facilities, which this development does not provide.

Site 2, which involves a new development on properties behind the KRE, is accessed by the Kingfield Road entrance to the ground, and indicates the loss of the gravel parking which is required by the club. Again, there has been no discussion with the club and no indication of the level of traffic movements up a narrow access lane.

With no consultation with the largest stakeholder as to the two new developments, the Board feels that we have to oppose these developments with the extremely negative impact that they will have on Woking Football Club.

Woking fans are able to see some of the proposal at the following link, and submit their comments. www.goldev.com/woking-new-scheme

– Rosemary Johnson and the Board of Woking Football Club

Goldev Planning Appeal

As you may be aware, the developers that the Club were working with over the plans for a new stadium have submitted revised plans for developing the area around the stadium.

These do not have the support of the Club as they do not provide the facilities of the original application and would restrict the Club’s potential for development in the future. In fact, the Club is actively opposing these revised plans and we plan to post a link to the Club’s detailed objections, lodged with the Council, in case you would like to add any personal objections once these become available for viewing.

Here are the detailed objections by the Club to the appeal.

Trust Adds To Club Funds

Thanks to all those that have contributed to Boost the Budget, the 400 Club and have bought Goldrush tickets. As a result of your generosity, the Trust has been able to donate £16,000 to the Club to help with Dowse’s Budget in these tricky times. Although government grants were available for the first half of the season, funds were only available as loans for the second half, so the Club has only (very) limited funds from the sale of streams* and from the Trust. It has been reluctant to take up the loans offered without the income to repay them.

*Note that if you became a Silver/Gold member when it looked as though fans would be allowed back, as they briefly were, you can get streams through to the end of the season without charge. Details are on the Club website here.

  • Rosemary Johnson – Chairman
  • John Katz – Board Member & Investor
  • Alan Dowson – Manager
  • George Burnett – Cards Trust Board Member
  • Rupert Philips – Cards Trust Chairman

David Holmes will be hosting the event and asking questions which will be gathered from fans. Questions can be submitted by all fans, and will need to be sent, in advance, to media@wokingfc.co.uk, or by sending a tweet to @wokingfc. 

Trust members attending on Sunday will also have the chance to ask questions after the main discussion and presentation. The questions at the end are intended to be informal and are not intended to be included in the ‘broadcast’ version.
