AFC Bournemouth are continuing to progress with plans to build a new stadium within Kings Park and hope to submit a planning application later this year.

In July 2017, with the support of Bournemouth Borough Council, the club announced their preferred site for developing a new stadium was an area of land within Kings Park, which includes the park’s athletics stadium and the club’s existing training pitches.

A market research firm, Stadimax, was appointed last September, contacting corporate clients, season ticket holders and Cherries Priority Points holders.

Prior to submitting a planning application, the club will also be looking to conduct further research, engaging with its supporters to gain a full understanding of their requirements for a new stadium.

The club are continuing to work with Bournemouth Borough Council’s sports and recreation development manager, who is providing advice and information ahead of a planning application being submitted.

The club and council are also working together on the details of a Planning Performance Agreement (PPA), which sets out how both parties will approach the various stages of the application process, required consultation, resources to be allocated and timescale.
