Lionel Road - The Final Hurdle

Dear Member,

As you'll now no doubt be aware, on Tuesday 18th February we received the fantastic news that the dream of a new stadium at Lionel Road had moved another step closer when Sir Edward Lister, on behalf of the Major of London Boris Johnson confirmed the decision of Hounslow Council's Planning Committee to grant planning permission for Brentford Football Club's proposed new stadium at Lionel Road.

We have now entered what we all hope will be the final critical stage whereupon the proposals will go before Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles.

Once again, we're calling on our Members to reiterate their support for the scheme by contacting Eric Pickles and his Special Advisors to urge them to support the approval by Hounslow Council.
