Scunthorpe United’s ambitious new stadium plans have been given a boost after the club confirmed planning permission had been submitted.
The announcement, via Twitter today, is the next stage in the club’s plans to build a 12,000 capacity all-seater “Iron Arena” as part of the vision for a £40 million out-of-town football and leisure development for the Lincolnshire club on a site near its current Glanford Park ground.
“The Iron can confirm planning permission has now gone in for the proposed new stadium.” Twitter
The ambitious plans will see a 120-bed hotel, a multi-use indoor arena, community sports pitches, indoor and outdoor crown green bowling facilities and a potential transport interchange hub with a new rail station.
The new football stadium will have club and executive facilities, a gym, office space and areas for commercial development as well as a club venue and supporters’ bar.
