Woking Football Club have agreed a deal with housing developer GolDev and Woking Borough Council that Cards chairman Rosemary Johnson hopes will secure the long-term financial future of the club.
Just weeks after local rivals Aldershot Town announced a similar agreement, the Cards have confirmed that the Laithwaite Community Stadium will be redeveloped with residential properties also built on the site. The National League club, who parted ways with manager Anthony Limbrick last week, have confirmed the deal in a statement.
It reads: “An agreement that supports the long-term ambitions of Woking Football Club will be progressed following a decision by elected members at last week’s full council meeting (Thursday 5 April 2018). The council has agreed to enter into the agreement with GolDev and Woking Football Club.
“The development agreement allows for the development of the club’s ground and adjoining land. It will include the reconfiguration of the football ground and construction of residential properties. The first step will be to conduct a feasibility assessment which will be considered by the council in July 2018.”
