Brentford Stadium Plans Approved

Fri 6th Dec 2013 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Brentford football club’s plans for a new stadium at Lionel Road were approved by council officials last night. 

Hounslow Council planning officers approved the scheme for a new 20,000-seater stadium which includes up to 910 residential apartments on a site between Kew Bridge railway station and the M4. 

The news will see Brentford move from their current home, Griffin Park to the 7.6 acre site on Lionel Road for the 2016-17 season.

Commenting on the scheme and the approval, the Chairman of Brentford FC, Cliff Crown said: "Our vision of an exciting new hub at this brownfield site has taken a significant step towards realisation with the council’s decision to approve our application. 

"The support we have received from many sections of the local community and our fans throughout this process has endorsed our belief in the need for this change. 

"We would also like to express appreciation to the Council Officers and Members for demonstrating their support for our plans. 

"This is a once in a generation chance to create a vibrant new stadium and adds to the buzz that is going on around Brentford. 

"Brentford is on the up as a destination, with new homes, retail, sports and leisure facilities which bring new jobs to the area. 

"In planning for our new home, we look forward to working with residents and businesses as well as our new neighbours in Chiswick and Kew, and together we can all seek to make the most of the new opportunities for the benefit of everyone."
