The Football Association has signalled that it wants to build a new national stadium at Wembley rather than Birmingham or Coventry. The scheme has been scaled down - as reported in the AJ (11.10.01) - to omit the proposed hotel, office accommodation and visitor attraction. However, problems have already set in.A report by Rodney Walker, chairman of Wembley National Stadium Ltd, was critical of the way contracts have been awarded. The National Audit Office will look into how public money has been spent on the project so far - delaying the project by three months. However, the Wembley development consortium - The World Stadium Team comprising Foster and Partners and HOK Sport - welcomed the initial green light as a 'positive outcome', which it said will allow it to get 'back on track with the design of this prestigious facility'.
