Bees United is delighted that Ron Noades has made such a positive statement regarding the construction of a new stadium at Lionel Road, Brentford. With support from both the Football Club and Hounslow Council, fans will feel that prospects of acquiring the land at Lionel Road will be much brighter.

At the end of this week, Hounslow Council officials (who will be accompanied by leading councillors) are meeting with the Strategic Rail Authority to start the process of negotiating an arrangement which will allow the site to be developed for the benefit of the local community. It is hoped this initial meeting will persuade the Strategic Rail Authority that the development plans promoted by Bees United offer much better value than the purely commercial transaction currently under consideration.

At long last there are strong indications that we are all pulling in the same direction, and towards the same goal. Nobody wants to see the club leave the Borough of Hounslow, and Bees United will continue to lobby strongly to stay at Griffin Park until a new stadium is ready for occupation. A quick resolution to the Lionel Road issue will assist the club in obtaining the financing it needs to remain in business during the period in which a new stadium is being constructed. We sincerely hope the Strategic Rail Authority can share the vision we all have for a project which will ease many of the problems the local area suffers.
