This petition was considered by the Council at its meeting on 17 October. The webcast of the meeting, together with all the supporting documents and the minutes of the meeting, are available through the Council's website.

In response to the petition, the Council resolved:

"That this Council requests that GolDev, Woking Football Club and other
stakeholders reassess their plans to redevelop the Laithwaite Community
Stadium and surrounding area in light of the petition and concerns of local people."

The Council further considered a notice of motion which stated:

“Council notes that a capacity of 5000 is sufficient for a football team to compete in League Two. Council calls on officers to assess the effect on current proposals for development at Kingfield of stadium capacities at various levels between 6000 and 8000.”

The motion was supported by the Council.

More details from petition creator

The local area, it's infrastructure and services, simply cannot support this extreme proposal for a 10k capacity stadium (size not required based on current and projected game attendance) and over 1000 flats.

- Influx of 2k new inhabitants would add unsustainable traffic and parking pressure on already congested local roads.

- Flat residents will have at least one car. The proposal to only provide 500 car parking spaces for the flats is untenable.

-Extreme high density flat designs and building heights are not in keeping with local architecture, are visually intrusive, significantly blocking light and privacy for local residents and will significantly alter the character of the local area.

- Influx of people cannot be supported by local services, such as already oversubscribed schools and doctors surgeries.

- Stadium will emit immense light and noise pollution for local residents and high levels of transient people in the local area and on the roads.

- The construction of this development will provide mass disruption on local roads, tremendous noise and environmental pollution for local residents which is undesirable.
