Wildstone Planning was instructed by Fulham Football Club to advise on proposals for new facilities including a full-size indoor pitch, new floodlit all-weather pitch and enhanced Stadium pitch to meet revised requirements for facilities in the Premier League Rules. The site’s designation as Metropolitan Open Land meant the proposals were deemed by policy to be inappropriate development and it was necessary to build a case for very special circumstances. Wildstone worked with a multi-disciplinary team to prepare, submit and negotiate planning for the scheme which was granted in April 2016. The scheme has been constructed and is now operational.
