The professional side of Wasps Rugby is currently in advanced negotiations to move their home base to Coventry. Although the RFU is trying to insist that they remain based in the south east it would only be a matter of time before they moved their training base north from its current site on Twyford Avenue.

Wasps training base in Acton is also home to the amateur side of the club including Ladies, senior men, youth and minis. This introduces a new generation of support to the club and several players currently in the Academy started their rugby here. The professional side shares the facilities with the amateurs and pays rent to do so. Without this money rugby may not be sustainable at the site which would be very valuable for redevelopment. Even if you don't like rugby and don't value the benefit the club brings to hundreds of local children and adults including many from Chiswick you may not want to see a large area of local green space disappear.
