Millwall Football Club fully endorses the recent comments made by Lewisham Council and Renewal about the proposed development of New Bermondsey.
Over the past year, there have been many very constructive meetings between all interested parties and their advisers, as a result of which new plans for New Bermondsey are in active and positive discussion. The means to a successful development are being put in place and we are particularly encouraged by the fact that Lewisham Council and Renewal recognise that the current conditional land sale agreement which allows the Council to sell the freeholds of land leased to Millwall FC must be terminated in order for the club to progress to a planning application. Millwall has always been in favour of the urban regeneration project for the area around our stadium and we wish to play our part in helping to make it happen on the land that is leased by the Football Club and the Millwall Community Trust. We expect to be in a position to share our plans with the wider community in the autumn when they have been more fully formed. Meanwhile, we are in talks with potential development partners.
