Boreham Wood have confirmed they have been granted planning permission to build a brand new covered home stand at the North End of their Meadow Park ground.
The 1,400-plus standing terrace is expected to begin construction in May 2018 and is part of a two-stage process, which they hope will later include a new East Stand, sports and community hub. These plans are the brainchild of chairman Danny Hunter and have been in the pipeline for several years now.
Hunter said: “This is I suppose, 19 seasons of perseverance coming to fruition and once again it’s proof of the small steps of progress that we’re continually striving to make at the club. So, I’d like to thank the local residents, thank my very loyal staff and thank the people of Borehamwood for their patience and for believing and supporting my vision even if it’s taken a while.
“I’d also like to thank the council’s planning department, the unseen but vital council officers and the local councillors for their help, guidance and their continued belief in what we’re all trying to achieve here as a progressive community club, council and town. I’d like to think, that this next phase of my chairmanship, is the beginning of a new era of success for our football club both on-and-off the park.
“I believe success for the club means success for the people and our ward of Cowley. I believe a strong club benefits our residents, rewards our fans, and is the reward for our club’s community ethos, that raises our town’s profile and Football League dreams.”
