It felt like the longest penalty shoot-out in Hamlet history, but eventually we had the result we so desperately wanted and needed as the Club’s joint application with Meadow Residential to provide vital new housing and a new stadium was approved by the Southwark Council Planning Committee on Monday (27th July).
As a substantial shareholder in the Club, DHST welcomes this crucial step towards securing the Club’s long-term future at a new home in East Dulwich. We look forward to continuing our work with the local community and to securing our vision of this club being a beacon of quality in non-league football whose facilities can act as a hub for the local community.
Our sincere thanks go to all the members of the Planning Committee who so carefully assessed the application, and all of the council officers to worked with the club to make the development viable. We would also like to thank those members of the Club and Trust who worked so tirelessly towards this application, and to our many members who wrote in support of the new stadium.
