Description: Lionel Road

First plans for a new stadium were drawn back in 2002, but only after acquiring a 7.6-acre land near Kew Bridge, Brentford FC could go forward and start design works for their desired 20,000 stadium. Initial renderings have been published in January 2013 and given for public consultation.

Despite having received planning permission very timely (2014), construction suffered from numerous setbacks and was unable to begin earlier than 2017, almost a year after initial delivery date.

By that time some of the regulations had changed and amendments were needed in stadium design. Not only were the stands scaled down from 20,000 to 17,250, but also the entire venue was moved 3 meters south compared to initial location in order to provide room for a road along its northern side. However, the entire plot or building heights remain intact.
