Hayes and Yeading United has been granted planning permission to redevelop the former Yeading FC ground The Warren.
This is the first stage towards a new-look ground at The Warren and playing facilities and community hub for the Blue Square Conference South club, as part of the longer term plan following the merger of the two local rivals last year.
Permission was granted by Hillingdon Borough Council planning committee last week to re-develop the stadium and facilities at The Warren, currently home to the United Reserve and Youth teams.
Former Yeading chairman Phillip Spurden, who has been overseeing the planning application, said: "On the field the results are obvious to see, and now off the field, after many months of hard work and investment both time and money-wise, this is the first but very big step towards taking the club forward."
United will continue to play its first-team fixtures at Church Road, the former home of Hayes FC, for the next two seasons.
But with that site earmarked for sale, the club is now focused on carrying out redevelopment at The Warren, in Beaconsfield Road, to begin another chapter in its history.
Hayes and Yeading expect to move to the new stadium for the start of the 2010/11 season.
Work on the new stadium will include construction of a synthetic pitch, relocation of the existing pitch and two five-a-side synthetic pitches.
A replacement main stand will be built along with an extension to the west stand, which will involve demolition of the existing main stand and an iron building.
The relocation of the main playing area will mean the training pitches being moved.
The development of The Warren will enhance sporting facilities to residents in the area, including the 27 junior and youth teams playing for Hayes and Yeading FC.
Permission to start work on the new stadium comes at a time when the club is flying high and currently sits at the top of the Blue Square Conference South table after a magnificent run of eight consecutive league wins.
