Statement from the Dons Trust after section 106 agreement signed

DT: 'A major milestone for Wimbledon's football club'

13 December 2017

The Dons Trust Board is delighted to announce that AFC Wimbledon, Merton Council and Galliard Homes have today signed the Section 106 agreement that clears the way for our new stadium.

On behalf of all our members and Wimbledon fans everywhere, the Board would like to express our thanks to all of the many people who have helped the club get this far on our journey.

Dons Trust Board Chairman Matthew Breach said: “This is another major milestone towards the rightful return of Wimbledon’s football club to Wimbledon and represents the result of years of hard work to finalise a complex deal.

“The signing means work can now start on the stadium, as well as the 602 new homes, retail space and squash and fitness club that make up the rest of the development.

“On behalf of all our members and Wimbledon fans everywhere, the Dons Trust Board would like to express our thanks to all of the many people who have helped the club get this far on the journey. There are too many who have helped to name them all, but in particular the support of Merton Council, the tireless efforts of Erik Samuelson and the tremendous efforts of the Bring The Dons Home campaign team have been pivotal.”

Thank you to all Trust members for your trust and patience during this process. Our first game on our home turf in more than 25 years is getting closer.
