FaulknerBrowns and AFL unveil new home for Brentford FC
AFL and FaulknerBrowns have revealed concept plans to build a new home for Brentford Football Club on a brownfield site next to Kew Bridge railway station, west London
The plans would see the club move east from its existing 12,219 seat Griffin Park ground – built in 1904 and famous for having a pub on every corner – to a triangular plot north of Lionel Road.
The scheme, which has already gone out to public consultation, includes a 20,000 capacity stadium designed by AFL surrounded by a mixed-use development masterplanned by FaulknerBrowns.
Brian Burgess, director of project backer Lionel Road Developments Limited said: ‘Our proposal has three main purposes: first to secure the long term sustainability of Brentford Football Club second to provide a new home for the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust charity and; third to provide impetus and assistance in the wider regeneration of this part of Brentford.’
‘Our first public consultation exhibition represented another step in the planning process, and we were delighted so many people came along to view the proposals and share their views.’
‘The club remains committed to engaging openly and widely with all sections of the local community, and would be happy to meet and discuss the plans with any interested parties.’
