Planning permission sought for new stadium for Scunthorpe United FC

Scunthorpe United Football Club or the ‘Iron’ confirmed this week that planning permission has now gone in for their proposed new stadium.

FWP were appointed by the Club – based in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, England – to create a masterplan for their proposed stadium relocation. According to FWP, the design aims to create a vibrant and modern development providing a real destination venue for sport, leisure and entertainment.

The proposed new 12,000-capacity stadium – which has a budget of GBP£40m – consists of a sweeping curve on the main stand, with a large striking truss paying homage to Scunthorpe’s steelwork history.

The masterplan for the site also includes the provision of an indoor soccer dome and several community sports pitches.
