    9, what’s the situation with the new stadium? What land are the council potentially buying off Chelsea to then lease back to them? I know it’s to stop an injunction, but wondered how much land it was, thanks in advance

    Pagan, it’s on the other side of the Railway lines and a legal move to overcome the light objection. Seems like it may remove the glitch.

    News says they may buy land off Chelsea FC and lease it back, didn’t realise they owned land on the other side of the lines, I presumed it was the land that end of the stadium was being built on as it’s that part of the stadium that will block th light…Pagan

    As expected, Hammersmith & Fulham Council passed a motion in a matter of minutes on Monday to prevent an injuction from delaying or even completely destroying Chelsea’s plans to rebuild Stamford Bridge.

    The injuction, raised by the owners of two nearby cottages who are set to lose some of their light due to the new stadium, called for Chelsea to either redesign the entire Eastern half of the new stadium or stop the plans altogether.

    The Council’s solution involves using their executive powers to acquire the part of the land that would be casting a shadow onto the home, and lease that back to the club. Since injunctions cannot be taken out against the Council, the family essentially will be forced to take the compensation payment for their loss of light. Chelsea had tried to negotiate with them for such compensation payment for several months now, just like with all others who are similarly affected. This particular family, who have lived there for half a century, were the only ones not willing to settle. Unfortunately for them, they will have no choice now. They could take the issue to court and argue that the Council’s intervention was illegal, but there’s little chance of that succeeding since there is clear language in the laws that allow the Council to do this after planning permission has been granted (which was indeed granted this time last year).

    So, another hurdle successfully jumped over. Chelsea remain on course to start construction next year, with the club set to move out in 2020 and returning in 2024 or perhaps a bit before if everything goes perfectly.

    In further good news, the Council’s full decision contains a hint that Chelsea are getting close to an agreement with Network Rail over their land interests (which the Council will then take over and lease back to the club). The agreements with the railways are key to Chelsea’s plans, since the very first step of the project involves the construction of decking over the railroads to the east and to the north.

    9, so that’s the land the stadium is built on then, think this may force the owners of the properties involved to sell at inflated prices which would be better for the club..Pagan

    welcome 442!

    999 – chelsea have done well there. when spurs were trying to get the green light i believe the legal battles went on for about 3 years with one business not wanting to sell (justifiably) and then appealing against compulsory purchase orders and it just dragged on and on. i believe soon after spurs won the case there was a fire at the premises and it burnt down. had spurs not won, i would be very suspicious of this. what capacity are chelsea looking for?

    Smaller than ours, Paxo, smaller than ours! 🙂

    Have to say though, I do like it, a bit more character than bog-standard shiny spaceships everybody else is building. Reminds of the Oriole’s baseball stadium, with all the retro vibe brickwork.

    Not quite Battersea Power station which would have been epic.. But Im a massive fan of the new stadium…. IF.. It can be financed and comes in on time and budget. Not sure we’ll fill 60 thousand it even if we are successful going forward. Last time we had gates like that it was the 50’s I think.

    But we have to remember attendance’s in the 60’s were based on the admission price of a packet of ciggies and a pint, now they’re based on a 3 bedroom semi…

    Always fancied the idea of turning Battersea into an NHL arena (why not? NFL is coming!), home of the London Bulldogs or something… now that would have been epic.

    442, welcome mate good to see you posting on here.

    Re the new Bridge 43,000 to 60,000 is not a massive jump and a lot of the increased capacity is put aside for Corporate.

    I don’t think we’ll have any problems filling the Stadium given the above providing we maintain a reasonably competitive team but a long way to go before the Ground is available and only time will tell. Cheers 999

    999… Is there any word on safe standing in areas of the new ground? Trouble is we can get to 60 thousand and that really is the ceiling for the club because of exits and everything else that comes with crowd control. United are looking to expand old trafford and city can expand… not that they fill their stadium every game. I just think that 60 thousand is the limit for the club…

    Interestingly, the UK govt is looking at overseas investment and Russians are under the spotlight. Perhaps this is why Roman aint been seen at the club recently. Anyhow, Be good to see some more of the Chelsea regulars from TT on here so long as those the loathsome laural and hardy double act of thick-fan and coca cola dont show up here.

    Quick bump for this….

    It seems Chelsea have put the brakes on indefinitely for their new stadium.

    What do the Chelsea boys think about that?

    Bit surprising and what does that hold for the future?

    Two strands of thought the squad needs significant strengthening and investing in a new Stadium would make that difficult as Arsenal discovered also the current Stamford Bridge is reasonably new albeit it leaves the club short of both Arsenal and Spurs in terms of capacity by circa 18,000 but match day revenues are not where club’s make most of their monies.

    It could also be linked to the current shaky political situation between Russia and the UK which has impacted on Roman. Probably only Roman and those closest to him know the facts behind the decision.

    Shame either way, I quite liked that stadium, bit different from all the usual “spaceships” that have been landing everywhere else.

    9, I reckon Roman will go ahead the the new ground if and when he get’s a visa to work in the UK.At the moment he can visit the UK but is not allowed to work. This delay on his visa is probably the UK government giving Moscow one finger due to RA’s dealings with Putin.

    TBA, I think you’re probably right mate why would anyone make a £ billion development in a country when the Government of the day won’t even let you in the country. It’s definitely imo tied in to the political situation between Russia and the UK.
