American Express Community Stadium

Work on the Stadium started in April 2009 following works to widen Village Way and was completed in May 2011, in time for the 2011/12 football season.  The contractor was Buckingham Group working for the Community Stadium Ltd.

An application for 8,250 additional seats at the stadium was considered at the Planning Committee on 25 April 2012.  The Committee was minded to grant planning permission subject to completion of the s106 Planning Obligation and deeds of variation and the conditions and informatives all as set out in the report.

In order to ensure that full consideration was given to the transport and travel implications of the expansion and proposals to provide car parking on land next to the Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA) campus, councillors and the football club agreed that an independent study was required.  The study report can be found here: Transport Strategy Review [PDF 508kb]
