A major redevelopment for Leeds United Football Club was awarded planning last week.
The scheme is linked to the existing East Stand at Elland Road and will provide new facilities for match day fixtures and non-match day conferences.
The proposals include two new hotels, together with an arcade extension incorporating new retail facilities, Club shop, restaurant and extensive conference and banqueting space. The proposals also include new offices and a basement nightclub which will help the Club’s business development. The stadium spectator capacity remains the same.
The project is intended to form part of a wider regeneration scheme promoted by the Council for the Elland Road area.
“The development is designed to increase non-match day income streams at Elland Road, which in turn will support and supplement the club’s efforts on the pitch,” said Chief Executive of Leeds United FC Shaun Harvey.”It will play a vital part in the re-generation of the area, and will also create opportunities for local people.”
