AFC Bournemouth have released an update on the progress of the Cherries plans to build a new stadium in Kings Park.

Last year the Cherries announced plans to look for a site for a new stadium and in July 2017 AFC Bournemouth announced plans to build a new stadium in Kings Park.

In September 2017 AFC Bournemouth announced that Stadimax were set to conduct market research into supporters` requirements for the club`s proposed new stadium.

The Cherries have confirmed that further consultation will take place before planning permission is submitted.

A statement on afcb.co.uk read…

‘AFC Bournemouth are continuing to progress with plans to build a new stadium within Kings Park and hope to submit a planning application later this year.

Adding…

‘Prior to submitting a planning application, the club will also be looking to conduct further research, engaging with its supporters to gain a full understanding of their requirements for a new stadium.

‘The club are continuing to work with Bournemouth Borough Council`s sports and recreation development manager, who is providing advice and information ahead of a planning application being submitted.

‘The club and council are also working together on the details of a Planning Performance Agreement (PPA), which sets out how both parties will approach the various stages of the application process, required consultation, resources to be allocated and timescale.

Your Say…

Whilst that`s encouraging I find the comment “and hope to submit a planning application later this year” a strange thing to say. Hope as opposed to will sounds as though there may be some doubt perhaps. I`m probably reading too much into this. Join the conversation here.
