Chelsea make statement regarding Stamford Bridge rebuilding plans

It is widely known that Chelsea’s latest planning permission agreement is expiring at the end of this month. The club obtained permission to build a new ground on the existing Stamford Bridge site in January 2017.

In June 2018, the club decided to postpone plans, citing an unfavourable financial outlook. As reported by Sky, the whole development was to cost £1bn.

It was hoped the new Stamford Bridge would be open by 2021. Now with the permission expiring, the club have released the following statement via the official website.

Chelsea Football Club acknowledges that the planning permission we obtained for a 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.

In these difficult times it comes as no surprise that the club won’t be starting work on the project. Let’s hope that when all is well the club can find a conclusion to take us onto the next level as far as having a bigger ground are concerned.
