Brentford FC has confirmed that the London Borough of Hounslow has completed the Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) land acquisition for the Brentford Community Stadium.
The Council has taken freehold possession of the land including the Lionel Road South, Duffy and Capital Court sites, and the football club has taken control of this land through lease arrangements. The freehold interest will return to the Club on completion of the new stadium development.
The club says this is a significant milestone, and brings to a satisfactory conclusion an 18-month process to assemble the land necessary for the new stadium development.
Before any work can start on site, there are a number of planning and Section 106 requirements that need to be discharged, and the club say they are working hard with their developer partner, Prime Place, to achieve them as quickly as possible.
