Hounslow Council have resolved to approve the London Irish planning application to allow rugby at the new Brentford Community Stadium.
London Irish has a long term aspiration to move back nearer to its roots and play home games in the West London area again. The rugby club submitted their formal planning application to allow rugby at the stadium in October 2016.
Brentford Football Club welcomed the decision, which they described as “positive”.
The club expects works to commence on the Lionel Road South site shortly. The stadium is due to be completed by the 2019/20 season.
