Hammersmith and Fulham Council has launched a survey on the future of the Linford Christie stadium – which could include a new stadium for QPR if there is local support for a major redevelopment of the site.
The survey is very short and asks for views on three options for the stadium – do nothing, a modest improvement, and redevelopment of the site. If QPR are to keep alive the hope of moving to a new stadium then support for the major redevelopment will be important.
This survey does not deal with the detail of a major redevelopment – a 45,000 stadium is just one idea produced by consultants working for the council and not by the club. Support for the principle of major development would mean more detailed options would be drawn up.
It will be inevitable that the council will regard comments from users of Linford Christie Stadium and from people who live nearby as the most important, but it is also important that the voices of QPR supporters are heard, whether they live locally or not. A stadium for the club at the Linford Christie could be good for the club, and benefit the community with community-focused projects based there, including the work of the QPR in the Community Trust.
