Plymouth Argyle's ground and the surrounding area is set to be transformed if £50m redevelopment plans get the go-ahead. Argyle chairman and property developer James Brent has outlined ambitious plans for a new grandstand with additional seating and the upgrading of ground facilities.
Proposals for the area around the ground include an ice rink to replace the current facility at Plymouth Pavilions; a 10-screen cinema with the only IMAX screen in the South West; a hotel and new park landscaping and changing rooms for youth sports field users. Speaking as chairman of property developers Akkeron Group, James Brent said he wanted to invest in facilities Plymouth could be proud of. He said the proposals were aimed at maximising benefits for residents and visitors.
