PUBLIC EXHIBITION AND PILOT TRANSPORT STUDY
Friday 15th September 2017
In the continued pursuit of securing a home ground and future for the oldest association football club in London, Cray Wanderers FC hosted an exhibition and public consultation of their proposed new planning application on the 7th,8th & 9th September 2017.
The exhibition was held on the proposed Flamingo Park site, A20 Sidcup by-pass, Chislehurst, BR7 6HL, whereby visitors could view the scheme on the potential site.
The revised scheme has been created through pre application consultation with the London Borough of Bromley Council and the Greater London Authority (GLA). The exhibition was an opportunity for local councillors, MP’s, residents associations, club supporters, sporting bodies and residents to understand the new plans and discuss their thoughts and comments ensuring the whole community has had the opportunity to comment before the plans are finalised and submitted.

The club also conducted a successful pilot transport study on Saturday 9th September, collecting club supporters from Cray and Orpington and transporting them to Flamingo Park by coach to view the exhibition before taking them on to the home game against Chipstead at Bromley FC.
“We would like to thank everyone that took the time to join us at the public consultation, providing their thoughts, feedback and comments. The support of the local community was overwhelming and we are now looking forward to submitting the application with Bromley in the coming weeks.” – Gary Hillman, Chairman of Cray Wanderers Football Club.
