QPR are consulting supporters and neighbours as the club ploughs ahead with plans to build a new 40,000-seater stadium at Old Oak, Acton.

The club unveiled proposals in December for a new ground to replace Loftus Road, which first became their home in 1917 and currently seats a round 18,500 people.

More than 50,000 newsletters will be distributed to homes and businesses across West London today (Thursday), inviting people to inspect the plans and put their opinions forward.

QPR claim the project would provide 55,000 new jobs and 24,000 new homes, as well as improving transport connections and community facilities in an area to be called 'New Queens Park'.

"We are looking to deliver much more than just a stadium," QPR chairman Tony Fernandes said.

"This is very much the start of the process. We want to share our ideas and plans and in turn hear from the local community.”

The first of six public exhibitions will be held at Loftus Road on Monday, September 15, from 2-8pm.
