Crystal Palace have pledged to meet the costs to re-home residents in Wooderson Close after submitting a planning application to redevelop their stadium's main stand.

Six homes would be demolished if Croydon Council approve the premier league club's plans.

Selhurst Park has been used by The Eagles since 1924. The club want to increase its capacity from 26,000 to 34,000.

Crystal Palace have announced that they will go beyond its statutory obligations to work with the council re-house tenants in equivalent houses in surrounding wards.

This cost will be paid for by the club with six new family homes being build.

Guy Wickett, Crystal Palace development manager, said: “We have had excellent engagement on our proposals with more than 400 people coming to view the plans and hundreds more talking to us through the website, fan forums and on social media.

"Our feedback to date shows that more than 85 per cent of people within the local community support the principle of the redevelopment of the stand.

“We will continue to work with Croydon Council and the local community as the plans progress, addressing any concerns that residents in the immediate area might have.

"This is a development which will bring significant economic and community benefits to the entire area and is a mark of confidence in Croydon.”

The clubs says the planning application will be made public in due to course.
