Peter Matthew, Executive Director of Planning Housing and Communities, said: “Following a meeting with our leaseholder, Hounslow Sports Club Limited (HSC), we have agreed to terminate the lease at the site of Green Lane Sports Ground. 

 

“While we regret the breakdown in relations between the various stakeholders, in the best interest of the wider community, the Council has decided that the right course of action is to bring the management of the ‘Green Lane Sports Ground’ and facilities back under council management.

 

“We will work with Hounslow Sports Club to transfer the management of the Grounds back to the Council over the coming weeks. We will now arrange site visits over the coming days to assess what urgent works need to be carried out to the site. We will also begin to prepare a new management plan for breathing new life into the Grounds.  

 

“We will be holding engagement meetings with the whole community over the coming months to ensure that your views are taken into account. “
