Plans for AFC Wimbledon’s football stadium in Plough Lane will be unveiled to the public at a series of exhibitions it was announced today.

Plans for the new stadium will go on show for the first time before the club puts a planning bid into Merton Council.

The news comes days after an independent inspector gave the go-ahead for the Plough Lane site in Wimbledon to be used for either greyhound racing or football after months of speculation.

Both sides will now have to submit planning applications to the council.

AFC Wimbledon in partnership with Galliard Homes announced today it will host three public exhibitions in Wimbledon Park Hall and Tooting Leisure Centre at the end of the month.

AFC Wimbledon Chief Executive Erik Samuelson said: "This is the next stage of a process that will hopefully lead to a return to Plough Lane.

"The exhibitions offer fans a chance to see detailed plans for the site, including computer-generated imagery of what the stadium will look like."
