Nottingham Forest delay stadium redevelopment

Nottingham Forest have announced a delay in their plans to revamp the City Ground.

The club had planned that major construction work would begin in May this year, however due to delays in the planning process the club is not in a position to start the development at the end of the current season.

The EFL Championship side said that as a result it has made the decision to allow season card holders in the Peter Taylor Stand the chance to renew their seat. Forest said:

The club remains fully committed to the project and will continue to work towards securing all the relevant approvals and is evaluating the options for the new timescales in order to minimise disruption for supporters.

Nottingham Forest submitted an application to planners for the redevelopment of the Peter Taylor Stand in December last year.

The scheme will see the creation of a new three-tier stand with a 10,000 capacity.

The new Peter Taylor Stand will see the introduction of world-class facilities including a museum, a new club shop, a range of hospitality lounge options and restaurants and executive boxes.

In addition to this there will be new spacious concourses for general-admission supporters as well as improved facilities for supporters with disabilities and a substantial increase in wheelchair spaces.

The new, modern, state-of-the-art structure will see The City Ground’s capacity become the highest in the East Midlands, reaching 38,000 after completion.
