Update from the WTC Committee about the current lease position:
The club served a notice on the landlords in January to force them to say whether they were looking to develop the site or not. While they are not seeking to end the tenancy at the end of 2019 they have told us they do want to take the site back in 2-3 years’ time. We can only suppose this is for the purposes of development.
We are taking further legal and other professional advice about how we can best resist this threat.
If the landlords remain on this course, then there is a high risk that we will have to go to court to fight for a new lease on reasonable terms.
We would like to thank everyone from across the community for their support. It has been amazing and has been invaluable as we take the fight forward.
