Cray Wanderers Football Club delivered over a thousand letters of support for their revised planning application to build a new ground, community facilities and affordable housing on the site of Flamingo Park, Sidcup By Pass Road, Chislehurst to Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London at City Hall yesterday

The revised scheme to build a home ground, community facilities and 42 new 100% affordable housing units on the site has huge local support. The new proposal again was approved locally by Bromley Council on the 13th March by an overwhelming cross-party support of 11 to 3 and has now been referred to Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London and the Secretary of State for ratification.

The Club submitted a previous application for the site of Flamingo Park back in 2016, this was approved locally by Bromley Council however was later refused by the Mayor. Instead of fighting the public enquiry the Club decided to withdraw and to instead submit a new proposal addressing all the Mayors previous concerns. The new scheme has been created through consultation with the London Borough of Bromley Council and the Greater London Authority and in comparison to the
previous scheme features:

• A reduction in developed area on the site
• A reduction in residential and commercial floor areas
• A reduction in height of buildings
• An extra community football pitch
• More Green Belt openness
• 100% affordable/social housing
