Tooting & Mitcham Sports and Leisure Ltd submitted planning back in December for the erection of an accommodation block comprising of 77 new affordable homes to be based at the front of the site. The profits derived from the accommodation block will be reinvested into the facility to provide new sporting facilities for the local community.
The plan to enhance the facilities at Imperial Fields has been the vision of the organisation since they first published their Master Plan in 2008. Today they are one step closer to completing their vision with the report to the planning committee recommending that planning permission should be granted.
