New Chelsea Football Stadium Planning Application

Last November a planning application was submitted to the local authority, Hammersmith and Fulham Council, for permission to expand the seating capacity at Stamford Bridge.

The assessment of the planning application then commenced with a public consultation on the proposals.

The results of that consultation were fed into the ongoing work on the proposals, which Chelsea FC have continued with the local authority.

The planning application therefore progresses on course and on time; the next stage is the second consultation, when the continuing work on the proposals is shared with the community.

Chelsea Football Club are pleased to announce that the second consultation period opens today 9 September and will run until 7 October.

New Chelsea Football Stadium Planning Issue

Planners demand design impact details of Herzog & de Meuron’s Chelsea FC stadium plans, reports the Architect’s Journal.

Herzog & de Meuron's Chelsea Stadium

Chelsea Football Club has been forced to provide more information on its proposed new stadium by Herzog & de Meuron after planners deemed their original submission inadequate.

If successful in their application, then work could begin in 2017, with the Club needing to groundshare for at least the 2017/18 season.

To put the proposed 60,000 capacity into context, here are capacities at Chelsea’s London rivals:

Tottenham Hotspur – Spurs (White Hart Lane, North East London): 61,000, from 2018
Arsenal (Emirates Stadium, North London): 60,432
West Ham United (redeveloped Olympic Stadium, East London): 54,000, from 2016/17 season

The planning process will last beyond the end of the season; if the application is granted planning permission there will still be a lot of work to do before redevelopment can start, including obtaining various other consents. We will inform you of progress through this process.
