Boundary Park – design description
Plans to build a new stadium in Oldham were drawn in early 21st century, but never came to fruition. As the ground lost its northern stand in 2008, capacity fell and caused for increased efforts to improve the situation.
Planning application was submitted by Oldham Athletic in mid-February 2013, envisaging the existing Boundary Park to receive a new northern grandstand, hopefully to be ready in mid-2014.
The new stand is the first phase of development planned for Boundary Park and includes spectator seating for just under 2,500 fans, a new supporters bar, a 500-seat conference facility, offices and commercial suite, car park, health and fitness suite and a coffee shop.
