Plans to bring forward a new home for Brentford Football Club have been on show to the public in a further step towards the submission of a planning to Hounslow Council.
Brentford Football Club is planning to move from its existing stadium at Griffin Park to a new purpose-built community stadium at Lionel Road South. The plans being developed will provide a modern, good quality 20,000 capacity stadium. Before a planning application is submitted, Brentford Football Club want to hear the views of the local community about their proposals.
At a day long meeting of the directors involved in the project back in November, it was recognized there was a great deal of work to undertake before a planning application could be submitted but the directors set the target of opening the stadium at the beginning of the 2016 season.
Greg Dyke, the Club Chairman, said:
We are inspired by the experience of Brighton and Hove Albion, who achieved promotion and a new stadium at the same time. It’s our ambition to achieve both by 2016.
London Welsh rugby club is reported to be interested in a ground share.
