The club are in talks with Hertsmere Borough Council over a potential move from Vicarage Road to Bushey Hall Golf Club.
However, a petition has been launched opposing the move due to the location's historic significance.
The Hertsmere Borough Council is expecting to receive a request for pre-planning advice from Watford FC about a potential move from Vicarage Road to another site in the municipality.
