Grimsby releases images for new stadium project

English League Two football club Grimsby Town has released early-stage images for its proposed new stadium development on the Peaks Parkway site.

The company behind the project, Extreme, has completed the viability assessment of the Community Stadium project and is now looking to progress to a formal planning application.

The images for the new project can be seen by visiting Grimsby’s official website.

The images are part of a presentation to North East Lincolnshire Council, with a cabinet decision due on January 18.

If given the go-ahead, Extreme will be proceeding with pre-application planning and will then draw up a masterplan.

The proposed development features a state-of-the-art 14,000-capacity football stadium, a new ice rink, additional sports and leisure facilities, retail, and food and beverage offerings.

Grimsby director John Fenty said: “Although the Council’s decision on whether to support this pioneering leisure project has been delayed until January, it will not stop us progressing with plans in anticipation of a supportive outcome.

“This project comes at a time when North East Lincolnshire is on the cusp of significant growth. That growth, together with this project, will see an explosion in employment and new business opportunities. I truly believe that we need to make North East Lincolnshire a great place to live, work and play, and projects of this nature can only help with those objectives.”

Alistair Gosling, chairman of Extreme, added: “If approved at cabinet, we will be instructing a thorough consultation process so that we can deliver a vibrant and quality new development that will attract visitors, provide regeneration, invest in local facilities and support Grimsby Town.”
