Cray Wanderers seek to push move away from current groundshare with Bromley

Change of Plan: The old designs for Cray Wanderers new ground which have now been altered to keep in line with Greater London Authority’s environment and development policy

Cray Wanderers will showcase their blueprints for a new stadium at a public exhibition on Friday, as they seek to breakaway from Bromley and own their own stadium.
Wanderers are campaigning for planning permission on their preferred site for a second time after Mayor of London Sadiq Khan overruled the initial approval of the local authority in 2016.
The club were seeking to have their new home built and ready to move in by the 2018/19 season until Khan vetoed the plans, and in an effort to win public support the club has invited members of the community to the new stadium location at Sidcup Bypass.
Chairman Gary Hillman said: “We welcome anyone who would like to find out more to come along and join us at the exhibition, we will be happy to explain the new scheme, answer any questions and we look forward to receiving feedback from members of the local community.”
Revisions to their 2016 plans have been made to coincide with Khan’s firm stance on protecting the ‘Green Belt’, an area around London restricted in its plans for growth and intended to be ‘countryside’ rather than an urbanised area.
Bostik Division One South side Wanderers have groundshared with National League outfit Bromley since 1999 and will host the event on Friday between 2:00pm and 5:00pm and on Saturday morning.
