London Mayor Sadiq Khan has said he will let Merton Council determine the future of a new football stadium to be built at Plough Lane, Wimbledon.
His predecessor Boris Johnson had called in the planning application leaving it up to the Mayor to determine the club's future.
In 2015 Merton Council’s cross party planning committee unanimously agreed to grant AFC Wimbledon permission to develop the site.
The plans included the demolition of the former Wimbledon greyhound track, replacing it with a new 20,000-seat stadium, homes and fitness club.
The mayor's decision follows a 14-day consultation, where the public was asked to comment on the application. The application has now been handed back to Merton Council to determine.
