Exclusive: Community bid for Udney Park Playing Fields confirmed

Hampton Wick resident Jonathan Dunn, a married father-of-two and owner of local firm J P Dunn Construction Ltd, has organised a bid supported by key stakeholders including Hearts of Teddlothians FC, Thamesians RFC, Teddington RFC and Friends of Udney Park.

The playing fields’ owners, private developer Quantum, announced their intention to sell the site in February this year.

But as the fields are an Asset of Community Value (ACV) they can legally only be sold to community groups over the next six months.

Jonathan is Chair of Thamesians RFC but he says his vision for the site “goes well beyond the interests of a single club.”

His plans include renovating the old pavilion, new cricket squares, a hybrid pitch and sports lights designed to have minimal light spillage or environmental impact.

A jogging/walking path around the pitches and a children’s play area complete his vision for the fields.
