The Howzat Group would like to hear your views on this as soon as details appear on the council’s website.
A brief summary of the new application includes:
- 7,500 permanent seats (previous plan had proposed 18,500). These would mainly be on the College side of the ground.
- Big matches would have additional temporary stands, on the Kennington Avenue side, increasing total capacity to 17,500.
- The new submission for the enabling development is for a block of 150 residential flats (not student accommodation) at the Ashley Down end and with 111 basement parking spaces. These would be 7 storeys high (over 21 metres or 70 feet). This would be over 50% higher than the present wavy-roofed Jessop stand.
HOWZAT requests you to: ‘PLEASE use this to express any concerns you have about the plans as the GCCC are likely to use the responses to support their case’.
