Prior knowledge of the outcome may also explain why Jamie Rueben was invited on to the board recently.

A good question for the upcoming fan forum would be "When will the club be announcing the build schedule and expected completion date for the Warren Farm training complex?"

I take it 'Ealingtoday' is not an independent publication then: it appears to be totally biased against QPR.

Given the amount of opposition I assume we are going to have to instal constant security.

I didn't realise we were getting the land for nothing for two centuries! :shock:

Also surprised this is in the Ealing paper before it's on the club website.

Pleased as I am that my club is belatedly getting to build a new training ground, I can see why local people might have preferred - and benefited from - a sporting facility for all.

Does anyone know what the completion time frame is likely to be if this saga is now over?

If you looked at the plans you would have seen the benefit to the locals. The council asked for a peppercorn rent for 200 years as a result of the plan for investment by QPR. Ealing Council is skint and couldn't even have afforded to reseed the pitches, let alone refurbish the site to meet safety regulations.

Thanks for that. I'm sorry I haven't studied the detailed plans!

I'm surprised, then, that the anti-Rs group vehemently insist that there will be limited public benefits to the local people - I guess they can't have read them, or just interpret them differently. I'm not surprised that Ealing Council are onside, as it clearly gets them off the hook of actually spending council tax on the community. The club definitely needs this facility by all accounts, however, and has done for some time, so it's great news from our point of view.

Just don't mention the new ground (and it might go away)! ;-)
