A public exhibition for local residents and fans to view the proposed amendments to the new Brentford Community Stadium development at Lionel Road South, Brentford is open for a second viewing this evening.
Lionel Road Developments Ltd and Kew Bridge Gate Developments LLP have submitted plans on behalf of Brentford Football Club and Be Living Ltd. These outline the proposed amendments to the Brentford Community Stadium development, including changes to the stadium design and the Central Eastern and Central Southern residential sites.
These were on show on Saturday, 30 September, and will be again today, Tuesday 3 October, for interested parties to look and ask questions.
Since the original planning permission was approved in June 2014, significant changes have taken place both within the development marketplace and in relation to Premier League football and Premiership rugby union requirements.
As a result, Brentford Football Club and development partners Be Living Ltd have undertaken a detailed review to ensure the stadium is as financially robust and deliverable as possible; Premier League compliant from day one; and with improvements to the public realm and residential design.
These are the final changes which, subject to approval by the London Borough of Hounslow, will mean construction of the new stadium will start in early 2018 with the aim of completing by late 2019 or early 2020.
The proposals will be on display at two public exhibition events at the Brentford Boating Arch, Unit 5 Kew Bridge Arches, Strand on the Green, London, W4 3NG:
- Tuesday 3 October, 4pm to 8pm
Representatives of the Club and Be will be on hand to talk through the applications and answer any questions. Any feedback on the proposals at the public exhibition will be given direct to Hounslow Council as part of their consultation on the application.
