AFC Wimbledon Could Be Back At Plough Lane

Plans unveiled by greyhound stadium

AFC Wimbledon could finally be moving to its spiritual home in Plough Lane after the greyhound stadium unveiled new development plans, which include a football ground.

It is the first time the Greyhound Racing Authority, which owns the site, has published a proposal which considers a football stadium on the site.

The organisation is proposing space for a 10-15,000 seater football stadium with leisure facilities as well as 450 to 500 homes and a "substantial" retail store. See the artists' impression below:

The GRA will develop the scheme further over the coming months in consultation with a number of partners including Merton and Wandsworth Councils, AFC Wimbledon, the Environment Agency local residents and other groups.

The proposal also includes community benefits such as coaching courses to promote sport to young people across south London.
