Brentford FC today confirmed that the London Borough of Hounslow has completed the Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) land acquisition for the Brentford Community Stadium. The Council has taken freehold possession of the land including the Lionel Road South, Duffy and Capital Court sites, and the football club has taken control of this land through lease arrangements. The freehold interest will return to the Club on completion of the new stadium development.
This is a significant milestone, and brings to a satisfactory conclusion an 18-month process to assemble the land necessary for the new stadium development. Before any work can start on site, there are a number of planning and Section 106 requirements that have to be fulfilled. We are working hard with our developer, Prime Place, to achieve these as quickly as possible.
