So why can't Brentford do what Tottenham did? This seems like it could be ready before the end of the year.

The previous plan was for them to move to the new stadium in December, but Brentford then decided against it:

Quote:
Brentford will not move in to Lionel Road Stadium until the end of the 2019/20 season.

The Championship club were aiming to open their new ground in December 2019 but ‘operational challenges’ have resulted in a change of plans.

Given the complexity of large-scale building works adjacent to railway lines, the need to anticipate the normal delays and problems that inevitably arise in a complicated construction project, and the operational challenges surrounding a mid-season move, our view is that an end of season move is best.

Gives the club and its supporters one last full season at Griffin Park, and will avoid the endless delays Tottenham faced in opening their new stadium.

I'll never understand how anyone can feel comfortable on metal terracing. I always feel like I'm going to slip up if I make any sudden movements and I'm usually pretty decent at staying upright.

On the latest BFC podcast it was announced that the club are going to start work to extend the main stand next season. Added to the new stand behind the goal, this will push the ground up to FL standard.

The approach to the ground shows how big the new addition is, something you can't tell front-on (from the same tweet):

Yeah. They really need to add something to the standing surface to make it less slippery. The little raised bumps they add do almost nothing.

Steelwork fabrication progressing well

Work is due to restart on drainage and substructure works around the end of July — and the club's steelwork contractors Britcon (UK) of Scunthorpe have now provided the first glimpses of the steelwork under fabrication.

Steel erection is due to commence in early September and construction work is programmed with a view to playing football at the new Community Stadium in August 2020.

The Pilgrims are preparing to say farewell to York Street, with Chester FC arriving on Saturday August 3 to kick-off the club's final campaign at their famous old ground.

AFC Wimbledon

Home Sweet Home

This is what our future really does look like....

Designed and built by two of the world's leading venue construction companies, our new home will be bursting with unique features you won't find in other stadiums:

*Our very own pub, open seven days a week, which the local community can use during normal licensing hours;

*A fan zone, which can be accessed from all our stands, so fans can meet before, during and after games, no matter where they're sat;

*The largest conferencing suite in the borough - capable of seating 500 guests;

*A museum charting the history of our remarkable club. What a story we have to tell - and we'll be able to arrange tours for the wider community;

*A 9,000 capacity which can eventually expand to 20,000 by connecting all four corners to create a dramatic bowl-shaped arena.

These are just a few of the features, as well. The main West Stand will have four tiers (including the ground floor), with media facilities, camera gantries and 12 glass-fronted executive boxes looking down on to our pitch. The players' tunnel will lead out from the centre of the stand, with the managers' technical areas either side.

Expected to cost around £30million, this is the stadium that completes our resurrection. This is what the pioneers dreamt and talked about when they took the bold steps 17 years ago to rebuild our club.

RMB, any idea if a planning amendment has been submitted for the Wimbledon stadium changes? For example, I remember the originally submitted scheme included significantly more hospitality space, and a players tunnel in the corner, not the centre.

Thanks!

Have to say, I much preferred the original scheme (although clearly the amendments have a lot more detail). It doesn't seem like they are getting much for £30 million.

I guess we are starting from scratch, that money is demoing the old stadium and all the pitch stuff, drainage etc

Stadium for Cornwall – Sportva Kernow

The business case for Stadium for Cornwall (put forward by the stadium partners) has been assessed by Cornwall Council and forwarded to Sport England – who have advised central government that it is acceptable. Councillor Bob Egerton (portfolio holder for culture, economy and planning) believes deals to transfer land to the council and central government funding (£3 million promised) could be signed by the end of the month.

Woking Football Club







https://twitter.com/DutchCards

Quote:
Proposals for more than a thousand houses around the planned new Woking Community Stadium are a step closer - as they go on public display today.

Plans have been drawn up for a new neighbourhood to be built in Kingfield - with the stadium at the heart of the development, replacing the current home of Woking Football Club.

They include around 1,100 mostly 2 and 3 bedroom properties - 20% of which will be affordable homes - with the club at its heart.

The new club will have multi-purpose facilities for retail, business, community and leisure activities.

The housing, in a development called Cardinal Court, is to help pay for the 10,000 capacity stadium.

Another 40 houses with 3,4 and 5 bedrooms and gardens are also proposed for Egley Road, where David Lloyd Leisure have agreed to relocate from Kingfield.
