Nottingham Forest has announced a public exhibition to allow the community to view designs for the proposed redevelopment of the City Ground.
The two-day exhibition will continue the club’s aim to keep fans and the community informed with the plans and progress. Club personnel will be present to answer visitors’ queries and discuss the exciting proposals.
The club expect to submit planning applications after the drop-in sessions on Friday November 15 and Saturday November 16; subject to permission they hope construction, assisted by Benoy, may break ground in early 2020.
The Reds announced in March after their victory over Derby County that they had secured an extended lease on the stadium, allowing them to redevelop both the stadium itself and the surrounding area.
Among the proposals are a new Peter Taylor stand, a club museum and improved executive and hospitality offerings, as well as several other improvements. The redevelopment would increase the City Ground’s capacity to 38,000 and make it the largest stadium in the East Midlands.
This is set to be the City Ground’s first major redevelopment since 1994 and the club said in March that this investment “illustrate[s] the long-term strategy and commitment of the owner, Mr Evangelos Marinakis, to fully rebuild the football club.”
The exhibition will take place in the Brian Clough Stand’s European Lounge on both days, from 10am – 8pm on Friday November 15 and 9am – 1pm on Saturday November 16.
