Council to vote on new 250 year lease to facilitate Notts Forest stadium redevelopment

Plans for the redevelopment of Nottingham Forest’s stadium – which will take its capacity to 38,000 – and its surrounding area will move closer to reality next week if Nottingham City Council approve recommendations for a new 250-year lease with the club that will facilitate the development.

The council will also be asked at the meeting on 18 June, to surrender the remainder of the existing 50-year lease to the Club.

The new lease will include an enlarged area of management and will result in Forest creating improved facilities for several rowing clubs (who are party to the proposals) as well as residential accommodation.

The project will also ensure the club remains on its historic site for many years, and create a “fit for purpose stadium that will be the largest in the East Midland and allow them to bring high profile sporting events to the city.”

Central to this redevelopment will be the creation of a new, world-class Peter Taylor Stand and improvements to the Trentside area, Brian Clough and Bridgford Stands.

With the demolition of the current stand, the new Peter Taylor Stand will see the introduction of world-class facilities including a museum, a new club shop, range of hospitality lounge options and restaurants and executive boxes. In addition to this there will be new spacious concourses for general-admission supporters as well as improved facilities for supporters with disabilities and a substantial increase in wheelchair spaces.

The club also intend to create a more open car park behind the stand and erect a new building on site that will contain residential apartments, boat clubs, a boutique hotel and other facilities.
