Brentford ready to submit

brentford fc may 2013Brentford Football Club’s ambition to develop a new home for the club will reach another milestone at the end of this week when they submit their planning application to Hounslow Council.

Key elements of the application being submitted will go on show at an exhibition starting on May 31.

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 detailed and outline planning applications plans provide a modern, good quality 20,000 capacity stadium set within a new mixed use development masterplan.

Brian Burgess, Director of Lionel Road Developments Limited, said: “We accept this is a challenging and complex application.

“For the past eight months the project team has been working very hard and we have been engaging with a wide range of local residents and others and we believe we have done as much as we can to balance the concerns some of them have with our financial needs to raise the necessary funds to build a multi-purpose new stadium.

“Our application has three main objectives: first to secure the long term sustainability of Brentford Football Club; second to provide a new home for the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust charity and its Learning Zone and thirdly to create impetus and assistance in the wider regeneration of this part of Brentford.

“We believe these proposals will bring a wide range of community benefits to the local area and the borough.”
