THE company behind controversial plans for a new stadium for Wycombe Wanderers and Wasps is in the process of being struck off the Companies House register.

Wycombe Sports Development Limited is currently subject to a process to strike it off the official register, according to the Companies House website.

It was set up in 2006 specifically to create the plans for a new 15-20,000 capacity stadium for the two teams and a sports village near Wycombe Air Park.

But it appears the company is now no longer needed after Wycombe District Council rejected the stadium proposals last year.

Companies House say on their website: "A company may apply to the registrar to be struck off the register and dissolved. The company can do this if it is no longer needed.

"For example, the directors may wish to retire and there is no one to take over from them; or it is a subsidiary whose name is no longer needed; or it was set up to exploit an idea that turned out not to be feasible.

"Some companies who are dormant or non trading choose to apply for strike off."

WSDL is registered at former Wasps and Wanderers owner Steve Hayes' address in Chorleywood, according to Companies House.

Hayes said remaining at Adams Park was not sustainable for either club, claiming the current stadium was holding them both back.

He handed over control of the football club to the Wycombe Wanderers Trust in the summer, writing off some of the £5.9m debt in the process, while a protracted sale of Wasps to a new consortium was finally completed in September.

Wanderers fans campaigned against the plans to move the club to a new stadium, with action groups being set up to contest the proposals.
