Following the granting of planning permission for final amendments to Brentford FC's new community stadium and last month's ground breaking event, the club has shared initial news and plans for the main construction works starting on site.

After a long period of planning and consultation with the Council, residents, businesses and fans, Brentford Football Club and development partner Be Living Ltd have confirmed that they are excited to be taking forward the construction of their new stadium and enabling residential development.

Be Living Ltd have been busy undertaking some site preparation and clearing works over the past few months, which has included the demolition of the Capital Court building and some test piling. The existing hoardings on Lionel Road South have also been moved to allow a safe zone for future works. This is under licence from the Council and has resulted in a slightly narrower section of pavement (although keeping a required width of 1.2m) for pedestrians and will mean cyclists need to dismount.

Buckingham Group will be the main contractor for the stadium build. They bring with them over 30 years of experience in completing major developments, including Brighton & Hove Albion FC's AMEX Community Stadium, Falmer Stadium, Cardiff City Stadium and Leicester Tigers' Welford Road Stadium.
