Wolves to get stadium upgrade

Premiership football club Wolverhampton Wanderers has received planning permission to redevelop its stadium.

Planners gave Signet Planning the thumbs-up to redevelop Molineux’s Stan Cullis stand.

It will take the stadium’s capacity from 29,000 to 32,000, offering better seating and improved viewing. The plans will also see a museum and refreshment areas developed at the ground.

Planners also approved outline consent to redevelop the east and south stands. If this receives full approval, it will take the capacity to 37,000 as well as adding 45 executive boxes.

Regional director Paul Stone said: “The design team worked closely with the city council, architecture advisor Midlands Architecture & the Designed Environment, local residents, fans and staff to create an iconic building adjacent to an important gateway into Wolverhampton city centre.”

Work on the first phase of the development is set to begin at the end of the 2010-11 season with the North Stand open for the 2012-13 season.
