The long-running saga over QPR’s plans for a new training centre at Warren Farm moved a step closer with a judicial review ruling in favour of Ealing Council.

The council’s decision to grant planning permission for the new site on the Osterley-Southall border had been questioned.

But Mr Justice Dove rejected the application for review of the lanning decision made by Hanwell Community Forum and confirmed that the council acted appropriately in granting QPR planning permission.

QPR is investing millions of pounds into community facilities and a comprehensive community sports programme, which will significantly improve local people’s access to sport.

QPR CEO Lee Hoos said: “This is positive news and another significant hurdle that we’ve overcome. There is still some way to go but we are really pleased with the outcome of this verdict.”

Councillor Julian Bell, leader of the council, said: “We are pleased with the judicial review decision and, with QPR set to invest millions of pounds into the community sports facilities, I’m confident we’ve secured the best deal for local people.

“Once the site is up-and-running, QPR will implement a significant community sports development programme which focuses on encouraging local people, particularly young women, older people and people with disabilities, to get involved in sport.

“The club will also be responsible for on-going maintenance of the new facilities, with no cost to taxpayers or the council.”
