Plans for a new 60-seater stadium at Chelsea Football Club has been put on hold after planning permission expired today.
The club was awarded planning permission for the Herzog and de Meuron designed stadium in 2017, but put the project on hold in May 2018 due to the unfavourable investment climate.
In a statement, the club acknowledged that the planning permission obtained for the new stadium expires on 31st March 2020.
“We are grateful to all our fans and stakeholders, especially Hammersmith & Fulham Council, for their patience and understanding in the matter.
“We will continue to consider our options for a new stadium, should economic conditions improve.”
