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 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 a capacity between 15,000 and 20,000 seats.
The stadium will also provide a new home for the award winning charity the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust, which works with over 27,000 young people and also runs the Griffin Park Learning Zone and the Brentford Boating Arch at nearby Kew Bridge.
In addition there will be some residential property built on the site and Brentford’s existing ground at Griffin Park which will be used for family housing once 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).
