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.
Planning application is expected to follow soon and the new stadium is envisaged to be opened in mid-2016. Its unusual form is a result of the triangle-shaped plot it’s expected to be built on.
