Once the application is submitted, Leicester City Council will validate it before carrying out its own statutory consultation. This will afford the public further opportunities to comment on the details of the application.
Following determination of the application, LCFC will review the timing of the project. Summer 2024 is the earliest possible completion date for the East Stand, with other buildings to follow.
The new East Stand and site masterplan will be included in a single hybrid planning application.
Have your say
The deadline for pre-application feedback passed on Thursday 2 September. All feedback received is being considered by the project team and will help shape our plans. We will report back on how we have responded to community and stakeholder comments and summarise our ﬁndings and activities in a Statement of Community Engagement report, which we will submit to Leicester City Council as part of the planning application. The Council will hold its own statutory consultation before the application is determined by planning committee next year.
