Description: Grimsby Community Stadium
The concept envisages a new stadium with secondary commercial functions set across 22 hectares of public land along Peak Parkway, the southern access route to Grimsby. It’s expected to be financed with the sale of old Blundell Park and a partnership with commercial developers.
To receive support of fans, citizens and the local council, the stadium is expected to provide numerous facilities for the community. Among them educational and healthcare facilities, public multi-sport pitches around the 14,000-capacity stadium.
Already in 2013 there was a noticeable opposition to the development as proximity of cemetery, crematorium, hospice and private allotments was considered threatened with excessive noise and traffic. The opposition never outgrew support, however.
