The planning application includes a 20,000 capacity stadium at Lionel Road South together with other community facilities, 910 new homes, and a hotel and supporting retail uses. It remains subject to referral to the Mayor of London and the Secretary of State and conclusion of a Section 106 Agreement.

Chris Gammon, Co-director of Lionel Road Developments, announced that Willmott Dixon had been selected following a robust process. He commented: “Soon after submitting our Planning Application in May 2013 we began the process of identifying a partner to work on this exciting and challenging scheme. We have had a high level of interest and it has been a difficult job narrowing it down to one company to enter into detailed negotiations on a development agreement.

"Hounslow Council officers have been focused on  the deliverability of our scheme and we believe that the Club and Willmott Dixon have in place a sound commercial model and sensitive design approach which will do a great deal to meet the concerns of local residents. We recognise we have to await the views of London and Central Governments before progressing to the next stage.
