Wycombe Wanderers stadium plans branded ‘unacceptable’

align=justify>Wycombe Wanderers Football Club’s plans for a new stadium have been branded as ‘unacceptable’ by the Wycombe High Society.

The society claims that a 17,500-20,000 seater stadium and sports village at Wycombe Air Park or Abbey Barn South would have a “massive impact” on the countryside and near-by residents.

Members of the High Wycombe Society have now called on Wycombe District Council and the Npower League Two football club’s owner Steve Hayes to instead develop access routes to current home Adams Park.

 A statement from the society said: “We believe that both Clubs would find the financial commitment needed by the Council difficult to undertake. The best way to retain WWFC would be through a modest improvement in their existing site and facilities, better access) and no new financial burdens.”

The society also has concerns about the environmental impact of a new stadium saying: “The visual impact of a large stadium, which would be prominent in order to advertise itself, of a sports village and of enabling development covering perhaps two-thirds of the existing airfield, would be huge, and unacceptable. “

The proposed stadium would also be used by London Wasps.
