Still one more week to back the stadium bid
There are still seven days remaining to show your support for a new stadium by writing to the Greater London Authority (GLA).
Following updated advice, we are urging ALL supporters and well-wishers to write to the GLA in support of the proposal to reverse the previous Mayor’s decision to ‘call in’ the application.
All submissions with a name and postal address supplied will be included in the consultation process. We would like to encourage all fans to ensure the GLA receive as many supportive submissions as possible.
Chief Executive Erik Samuelson said: "Our updated advice is for everyone who supports the stadium proposal to write to the GLA in support of the Mayor's request for additional information about the decision to call it in.
"I know we have sent a lot of letters and e-mails and there is a certain amount of campaign fatigue, but this really could be the last step. Please persuade friends, family, colleagues and well-wishers to write in - not just Wimbledon fans.
“We managed to get several thousand letters of support in the earlier stages of our stadium bid, but we know we took more than 20,000 thousand fans to Wembley. Please take the time to ensure that everyone you know writes in as we seek a return to our spiritual home.”
1. You consider the previous Mayor’s decision to call in the application was not justified and contrary to the advice of his officials
2. You support the proposal to return the application to Merton.
The deadline for submissions is 10 August.
Please remember to include your name and address in the e-mail.
