"QPR chairman Tony Fernandes faces an uphill battle to build a new stadium at Old Oak Common, with Cargiant currently working on their own regeneration plans.

"... Tony Mendes, managing director of Cargiant, said:
"We are moving ahead with extensive plans for the Hythe Industrial Estate in NW10, which has been earmarked as a future regeneration site by the Mayor of London.

As a significant land owner and employer in the area for more than 35 years, we are fully committed to develop plans that will benefit the local community by creating thousands of new homes, significant commercial space, vibrant and attractive public realm, community amenities and thousands of jobs for local people.

Cargiant had partnered with experienced developers First Base and Lipton Rogers to develop our plans, and we have already committed contracts up to the value of £15 million to progress the application for outline planning permission."

Evening Standard:
"QPR’s plans have run aground"
"Queens Park Rangers has come up against a formidable opponent in the pugnacious shape of Geoff Warren.

"He is the owner of 47 acres of land at Old Oak Common, used by his car sales company Cargiant.

"QPR wants to embed a stadium within 10,000 new homes Warren plans on the land. A lot has been heard from the club since it unilaterally announced its intentions last December. Nothing has been heard from Warren directly, until today. It's no deal."
