Dartford to get 'eco-friendly' sports arena

  • Comment
Alexander Sedgley has been given the go-ahead for a new 'eco-friendly' sports arena in Dartford, Kent.

Clad in timber, both the clubhouse and terracing at the £6.5 million Princes Park Community Stadium will have flint walls and green roofs.

In addition, the scheme - which is been funded by Dartford Borough Council - features its own 'water recycling ecosystem' and will provide an all-weather pitch for shared use with the existing golf club and road-runners club.

The 5,000-capacity stadium will also become the new home of Dartford FC, ending the club's 13-year exile from the town.

Conceived as a 'continuation of the natural landscape', the south London-based practice hopes the stadium will be completed in time for the start of the 2006/07 season.
