Hammersmith and Fulham Council has approved plans by Chelsea Football Club to build a new 60,000 stadium.

The new stadium will be built within the grounds of Stamford Bridge in Fulham Road and will be designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron,

Council leader, cllr Stephen Cowan, said: ‘Chelsea’s new stadium will deliver some real benefits to the borough. But we have also made it clear to the club that we fully expect them to work with local residents to minimise the disruption of the works.

‘We are happy to help usher in this exciting new phase in Chelsea FC’s history. And we will continue to work hard to deliver as many protections and benefits as possible for the area by working with the club and local residents.’

As part of the application, Chelsea FC will contribute £22m in benefits towards the local community including £3.75m to build affordable housing for local residents.
