English League One football club Scunthorpe United has revealed details of the planned redevelopment of its Glanford Park stadium.

The plans have been released as part of the club’s request for an environmental impact assessment in a submission to North Lincolnshire Council.

The GrimsbyLive website reported that the club has proposed a 12,000-seat stadium on the site of Glanford Park, which currently seats around 9,000 fans. Up to 100 new residential apartments will also form part of the development, along with lettable space for local businesses.

Scunthorpe chairman Peter Swann confirmed back in October that the club would be redeveloping Glanford Park instead of building a new stadium from scratch. The club had been looking to move to a new home for a number of years but an agreement with the council was unable to be reached.
