BRENTFORD supporters have been warned that there is no room for complacency about the club's bid for a new home on Lionel Road.
A planning application has been put in, with a decision expected later this year, but the project was dealt a blow this week when the Deputy Mayor of London wrote to Hounslow Council failing to give the plans his backing.
Brentford independent supporters association BIAS are now urging fans to redouble their efforts in writing to the local authority in support of the scheme.
A BIAS statement read: “The club urgently needs you to write into the council and demonstrate that there is support for the plans. Support for the plans are far from universal, and Brentford won’t get a new ground without our own fans saying they actually want it.
“Whilst we believe the club's plans on Lionel Road have adequately addressed the main issues raised in the Deputy Mayor's note, it does underline the importance for all Brentford fans to support the club's proposals.
“The plan is for a 20,000 seat capacity stadium – providing much-needed community facilities, new homes and jobs and increased revenue for local businesses, and rejuvenating an area in urgent need of redevelopment.”
