Chelsea Football club have been given the green light to build a new state of the art £500 million stadium.
The new stadium will be developed on the existing site of Stamford Bridge, increasing match day capacity from 41,600 to 60,000.
Chelsea's proposal was approved unanimously by Hammersmith and Fulham Council’s planning committee in January.
The club's application also includes an investment of £12 million in community activities, such as employment and skills training, as well as a contribution of £3.75 million towards affordable housing in the borough.
The new stadium has been designed by architects Herzog and de Meuron – who also designed the iconic Birds Nest Olympic stadium in Beijing and the widely acclaimed Allianz Arena in Munich.
