Fulham progress Craven Cottage expansion plans

last updated Wednesday 16th November 2011, 9:41 PM

Stevenage Road Fulham have made positive progress with regards to expanding Craven Cottage.

The club announced last month about how it intends to redevelop the stadium and embarked on a consultation process with neighbours and fans.

"The outcome of the process was extremely positive, with the vast majority of those that either attended the consultation forum, or submitted their thoughts via the club's on-line mechanism, being in full support of the club's ambition to remain at its historic London home, and to increase the current capacity to 30,000," a club statement read.

"Subsequently, and as part of this process, the club has sent an environmental scoping document to the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham.

"This is not a planning application, but an early part of the process to assess the environmental issues associated with any subsequent development proposal.

"There are some initial drawings included in this document as this is a requirement for this exercise, but the more detailed final designs will be available in due course.

"The club is extremely pleased, that following huge support the consultation process it has been able to move forward with the next stage in its proposals.

"Further consultation will be held in early December when much more detailed plans for the stand will be on display, and we hope to submit a planning application in 2012."
