After many years of effort this project took a step forward on 28th June 2012, when the Club bought a 7.6 acre site in Lionel Road South from Barratt Homes who had originally acquired the site in January 2008, for a development in partnership with the Club.
The Club is planning to build a stadium on the land with of 20,000 spectators.
The stadium will also provide a new home for the award winning charity the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, which delivers over 7,500 sessions annually, providing access to over 25 different sports in four London Boroughs, and also runs the Griffin Park Learning Zone and the Brentford Boating Arch nearby at Kew Bridge.
In addition, the Club is applying for outline planning permission for some residential property built on the site.
Brentford’s existing ground at Griffin Park has existing outline planning permission for housing, which will be built the new stadium is completed.
The site, which is currently occupied by industrial tenants, is located between Kew Bridge station and the elevated M4 motorway close to Chiswick roundabout (see map).
