The campaign to ‘Save Our Stow’ appears to be losing momentum.

Following rumours of an immanent meeting between the S.O.S. campaigners and L&Q Housing Trust who bought the land in May, we can now confirm no further meetings are planned before the stadium’s closure date of August 16th.

Plans are in place to dismantle and remove fittings and equipment prior to L&Q taking ownership on September 1st.

An L&Q spokesperson said:

“We recognise the importance that Walthamstow dog track has played in people’s lives and livelihoods over the years and appreciate the reasons for the SOS campaign to keep it open. Because of this we have agreed to meet with the SOS bidding consortium so that they have an opportunity to present a more detailed business proposal. This meeting would take place in approximately 2 weeks.”
