L&Q have issued a statement following the recent meeting on 17th September with the Save Our Stow campaign.
L&Q’s position has been clearly outlined in this statement and in doing so, have ruled out either selling or leasing Walthamstow to the SOS consortium, stating
‘We will not consider leasing the site for greyhound racing under any circumstances’
‘There has still been no offer made by your group for the site under these conditions and we assume no offer will now be made. Outright sale must also be therefore discounted by us’
Greytexploitations also finds it very encouraging L&Q, as one of the UK’s largest housing associations, an association who will be acutely aware of society’s social needs and trends, ‘do not wish to be legally associated with the running of a greyhound racing business’
