Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Wembley Stadium planning permission is very specific in respect of car parking for the new National Stadium. It has always been intended that the vast majority of spectators going to the new Stadium should travel by public transport. That is why TfL and the LDA have invested in the major improvements to Wembley Park, Wembley Stadium and Wembley Central Station and why the LDA has supported Brent Council in developing a new Stadium Access Corridor.
