The redevelopment of Brentford stadium has taken a major step forward today after Hounslow council completed the necessary land acquisition for the project.
Brentford FC, which is developing the scheme in partnership with Willmott Dixon’s private residential arm Prime Place, said the local authority has completed the compulsory purchase order land acquisition for the Brentford Community Stadium.
The council has taken freehold possession of the land including the Lionel Road South, Duffy and Capital Court sites, and the club has taken control of this land through lease arrangements.
The freehold interest will return to the club on completion of the stadium development.
This is a significant milestone for the scheme and ends an 18-month process to assemble the land necessary for the development.
Prime Place is currently working through a number of planning and section 106 requirements for the scheme, which have to be fulfilled before work can start on site.
The project will include a new stadium and seven residential buildings, which will be spread across the 4 ha site on Lionel Road South.
There will be a mixture of homes on the site, including 304 for private sale and 344 for private rent through Willmott Dixon’s PRS company, be:here.
