BRENTFORD FC Hounslow Council has approved plans for Brentford Football Club’s new 20,000-seat stadium and 648 homes. The plans, lodged by residential developer Prime Place and Brentford FC, received the council’s go-ahead in December. The stadium and seven residential buildings will be located on a fourhectare site between Lionel Road South, Capital Interchange Way and railway lines, within a few minutes' walk of Kew Bridge station. The 'Bees’ will relocate from Griffin Park in Braemar Road, the club’s home ground since 1904, where 75 family houses will be built and a memorial garden will celebrate the history of the football team. Club chairman Cliff Crown said: “As well as creating a brand new stadium for our supporters
and an attractive environment for visitors and local residents, this project will create jobs and opportunities for local businesses. We have an exciting future ahead of us." The seven residential buildings on Lionel Road South - branded Prime Place, Kew Bridge - will contain 304 homes for sale and 344 for rent in a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments. A spokesperson for Prime Place said the homes would offer “high-quality hotel-style living” with facilities including a concierge service, a library, a dining room, a cinema, a gym and private landscaped gardens. The surrounding public space will be improved with pedestrian and cycle routes along Lionel Road South, shops, and car and cycle parking.
