Higher Home Park Plan Submitted
The planning application for the Higher Home Park development has been submitted to the Plymouth City Council.
The whole development is set for completion in summer 2015 with Higher Home Park will becoming a hub for sporting and leisure facilities in Plymouth.
Offering an impressive list of facilities, Higher Home Park will include a state-of-the-art ice arena, multiplex cinema, quality hotel, a new grandstand for Plymouth Argyle, plus cafés, restaurants and shops.
The application to the planning department has been submitted by James Brent's Akkeron Group with Bristol-based D2 Planning acting as planning consultants.
Full details of the scheme submitted to the planning authority will be available shortly.
The construction of the new £10m grandstand, which will not cost Argyle a penny, is scheduled to start in September and should be completed by November 2014 and is set to generate between £1 million and £2 million per year for the football club.
This fantastic project will provide a huge boost to Plymouth as a city and to the local economy.
During construction there will be in excess of 600 construction workers jobs during the two year build period and 400 jobs created for the management and provision of the new facilities and services when the regeneration is complete.
As well as the state of the art grandstand, cinema, hotel, and ice arena there will also be significant park landscape enhancements including creation of new tree lined routes, statement 'gateways' to the park at key entrances improving the sense of arrival to this special green space and provision of changing rooms for youth sports field users, including improvements to Cottage Field.
This is an exciting project for Argyle fans and the city of Plymouth.
