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.

Vote for a New Badge

The Trust was advised by the Board of the club that there had been a decision to replace the Club’s most recent badge, with a new design that is intended to reflect the changes in the Board of Directors and future plans.

The Club has made the two designs available for fans to vote on on the Club’s website. Votes need to be cast by 6.00pm on Thursday 25th February, with the winner to be announced on 1st March.

One of the changes is an amendment by the Club of its inauguration date from 1889 to 1887, based on research in newspaper archives.

Of course, there has been a lot of discussion on this topic and there were 148 posts on the topic on the Cardsboard at the time of posting this article!

The Club has also given some information about the use of the Woking FC Shield on next season’s kit.
