Hounslow Council’s planning committee has given the go ahead for a new temporary training facility for Brentford Football Club.

The new buildings will be on Jersey Road and were unanimously approved by councillors. The club is still seeking approval for further plans for permanent facilities at the site as it seeks to develop a state-of-the-art performance centre

The club says that this decision means it can replace the existing buildings at Jersey Road. The new training facility, whilst temporary, will be of a much higher standard and will continue to be used by the First Team and B team.

The temporary facility will be in place for the next five years, enabling the club to continue to develop its plans for a new permanent performance centre.

The pitches and facilities are located on an area of Metropolitan Open Land (MOL) taking up approximately 50% of the entire site area.

The club has ambitions to compete in European competitions and UEFA requires participating teams to run an academy. It had been given permission for an earlier redevelopment of the site in 2019 but its promotion to the Premier League changed the requirements of the club and did not include the provision of an Academy.

There will be a full-size covered pitch, a new full size external 4G pitch and floodlights for two outdoor pitches for all year-round training and community use. The site needs additional parking spaces to ensure that there is enough space for players, staff and visitors to Jersey Road without anyone needing to park on local roads.

The Bees have trained at the site in Osterley since 2004 and two years ago signed a 20-year extension to its lease on the ground.

The club are now working with the Council on the conditions agreed at the Planning Committee and are proceeding with preliminary works. The aim is that the new facilities will be operational by the end of the year.

The proposals are now being referred to the Mayor of London for his approval and the conclusion of a Section 106 Agreement.
