The new ground was designed by the celebrated Swiss firm Herzog & de Meuron and London architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands.

Planning consent to start the ground redevelopment ran out on 31 March 2020, as reported by Building Design.

The Stamford Bridge project was put on hold indefinitely in 2018 due to an unfavourable investment climate.

The London football club’s Stamford Bridge transformation was granted planning permission in 2017, but the project dates back even further, to 2015.

The Wandon Road Residents Association and Moore Park Area SW6 Residents had implored the council to refuse permission in January 2017. They had demanded an overland station (paid for by Chelsea Football Club) located within the football ground. The residents also requested a public walk way, cycle path and even a bridge over the River Thames be established priot to granting planning.

Then in 2018 the council prevented a court injunction against the new stadium design after locals claimed it would block natural light to their properties.

Planning Approval for New Chelsea Football Stadium

Chelsea Football Club has been given permission by the Mayor of London to build a new £500m 60,000-seat stadium building in Southwest London.

Hammersmith and Fulham Council approved the plans in January to demolish the current 41,600-capacity Stamford Bridge stadium.

The mayor has the final say on major planning applications in London.

Earlier, Sadiq Khan said the “high quality and spectacular design” would add to the capital’s “fantastic array of sporting arenas”.

Chelsea FC stated, “This is the latest significant step toward redevelopment of the stadium and the delivery of the extensive local community programme.

Further steps lie ahead, both during and after the planning process, before construction work can commence.

We continue to collaborate with all stakeholders and will keep you informed of progress made.”

New Chelsea Football Stadium Planning Application

Last November a planning application was submitted to the local authority, Hammersmith and Fulham Council, for permission to expand the seating capacity at Stamford Bridge.

The assessment of the planning application then commenced with a public consultation on the proposals.

The results of that consultation were fed into the ongoing work on the proposals, which Chelsea FC have continued with the local authority.

The planning application therefore progresses on course and on time; the next stage is the second consultation, when the continuing work on the proposals is shared with the community.

Chelsea Football Club are pleased to announce that the second consultation period opens today 9 September and will run until 7 October.

New Chelsea Football Stadium Planning Issue

Planners demand design impact details of Herzog & de Meuron’s Chelsea FC stadium plans, reports the Architect’s Journal.

Chelsea Football Club has been forced to provide more information on its proposed new stadium by Herzog & de Meuron after planners deemed their original submission inadequate.

If successful in their application, then work could begin in 2017, with the Club needing to groundshare for at least the 2017/18 season.

To put the proposed 60,000 capacity into context, here are capacities at Chelsea’s London rivals:

Tottenham Hotspur – Spurs (White Hart Lane, Northeast London): 61,000, from 2018
Arsenal (Emirates Stadium, North London): 60,432
West Ham United (redeveloped Olympic Stadium, East London): 54,000, from 2016/17 season

– An arena designed to create an exciting atmosphere

– Direct access to and from Fulham Broadway Station, making travel more efficient

– Stadium facilities improved for every area

The planning process will last beyond the end of the season; if the application is granted planning permission there will still be a lot of work to do before redevelopment can start, including obtaining various other consents. We will inform you of progress through this process.
