KSS submits plans for Fulham Football Club redevelopment
KSS has submitted a planning application to build a new riverside stand at Fulham Football Club (FC) in west London
Submitted to local authority Hammersmith and Fulham Council earlier this month, the project replaces an existing stand with a new facility containing seating, hospitality areas and residential apartments.
The scheme would make Craven Cottage the eighth largest stadium in London if approved. The 2.4 hectare complex currently seats 25,700.
A controversial statue of pop star Michael Jackson – donated by club chairman Mohamed Al Fayed – will be relocated under the plans.
A new location for the statue is not included in the planning application, however a club spokesperson confirmed the artwork would remain on the Thames riverside.
Fulham FC has been based at Craven Cottage since 1896. The club’s 5,900-seater Johnny Haynes Stand on Stevenage Road is Grade II-listed.
