A New Home Park

A New Home Park

Ambitious plans for a new Argyle grandstand have been approved.

The momentous decision for Argyle fans and the City of Plymouth was made today by city planners and is fantastic news for all concerned.

The £10 million grandstand is part of a wider development at Higher Home Park that will include a state-of-the-art ice arena, multiplex cinema, quality hotel plus cafés, restaurants and shops.

The planning application was debated for several hours today by the Planning Committee at the Plymouth City Council who eventually gave the project the go ahead.

The whole development, put forward by Argyle owner James Brent and his Akkeron group, is set for completion in the summer of 2015 with Higher Home Park becoming a hub for sporting and leisure facilities in Plymouth.
Work will start on the grandstand in October and is scheduled to finish during the summer of 2014.

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.

Congratulations and thank you to the Planning Committee for making the right decision.
