The latest possible site I'm aware of is Merantun Way in Colliers Wood -

AFC Wimbledon were still saying Plough Lane was their preferred location but the day after the paper printed the article above they printed 'Ambitious plans for brand new dog track in Plough Lane, Wimbedon" ( which would put an end to the football club's plans of moving there.

So the leader of Merton Council believes a dog track is the most appropriate home for AFC Wimbledon. No wonder the last lot moved to Milton Keynes.

It's late. I'm not sure if I'm reading your post correctly but I think you've got the wrong end of the stick.
The owners of the dog track want to tear it down and build 800 houses on the site but the council said that any redevelopment should have an “intensification of sporting activity”. I'd assume this to mean they wanted the football club to move there rather than have houses on it.
It's now emerged that someone wants to build a new dog track on the site which means the football club wouldn't be able to move in.
