Our Original Mission
South Woking Action Group represents local residents and football fans from Hoe Valley and Mayford neighbourhoods and beyond who are concerned and object to the proposed tower block development proposed at the site of Woking Fooball club.
We seek to work with Woking Football Club, Woking Borough Council and developers to find an optimal solution to future-proof the Football Club. But not to the detriment of the local area, in terms of overdevelopment and unsustainable pressure on local infrastructure and services.
Update #1: In June 2021, the Planning Committee of Woking Borough Council agreed with our objections and voted to reject the proposed development. Read more here: https://southwokingactiongroup.org.uk/2020/06/26/statement-from-swag-regarding-the-refusal-decison-by-wbc-planning-committee/
Update #2: GolDev decided to appeal the rejection. SWAG will be attending and making representation at the appeal hearing by the planning inspectorate.

How you can take action to take back control!
The latest news and comments from the SWAG committee.
Local residents support investment in Woking FC and its ground, however, we do not support the overdevelopment of South Woking and the proliferation of PR ‘spin’ being used to sway football fans and residents of Woking at large.
Planning applications 1176 and 1177 at Kingfield and Egley Road are not in the best interests of the town, the local community and Woking FC, which may sadly, never recover, because of the following facts.
A huge thanks to everyone who spent time at the developers Peacocks ‘exhibition’ last Friday. You are all absolute stars for showing them the nonsense of one of their many false misconceptions.
