New Stadium now at Advanced stage - in Echo 3/8/06


Nov 23, 2005
Club Chairman Ron Martin today revealed he would submit the club's new stadium plans to Southend Council this September, in the hope building can start by Spring 2007 in next year.

The detailed design for the new ground at Fossett Farm, which believed to cost more than £25 Million and be almost more than double the capacity of Root Hall, will go before the planning committee in January. The announcement comes just before the Championship get underway this saturday.

An excited Mr Martin said "Plan for the new stadium is now at advanced stage now. After they are submitted in late september, there will be a 16-week public consultation. Durning that time, the design will be available for everyone to see and we hope to get the go ahead".

Southend Utd ground will be constructed by HOK Sport who were reponsible for building Arsenal's new Emirates Stadium.
