The second exhibition relating to proposals for the redevelopment of the Lionel Road South site by Brentford Football Club will be held for three days starting Thursday, March 21st.

The first exhibition held over three days in January was attended by over 300 people and was the first step in consulting local residents on the proposals.

Local groups in Chiswick say the capacity of the stadium and the potential scale of the enabling development, which may include three tall residential blocks on each of three corners of the site, will have a major impact on Chiswick. They have urged residents in the area to attend the exhibition to inform themselves on the Club’s intentions.

The project vision according to the developers is to:
• provide a modern high quality 20,000 seat stadium for first class, professional football and rugby with income growth potential in order to secure the long term sustainability of Brentford Football Club;
• provide a social focal point with a buzz of activity;
• enable the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust to provide a range of activities that will:
- attract all age groups from all sections of the local communities;
- promote sport, health, education, employment and training, social enterprise and social inclusion;
• assist in the regeneration of the area and build close links with local businesses and residents

Friday 22nd March: 1pm-5pm
Venue Griffin Park, Braemar Road Entrance

The Club is hoping to submit its planning application in May 2013.

The West Chiswick and Gunnersbury Society is represented on the reformed Lionel Road Liaison Group together with other local resident groups. Marie Rabouhans, Chairman of the WCGS said their areas of concern include the issues of impact on local community in relation to matters such as transport (Gunnersbury Station and Kew Bridge stations) as well as the overall impact of the development itself.
