Architects Foster and Partners and HOK Sport submitted revised plans for the Wembley national stadium project to Brent council yesterday.

The architects redesigned the £700m project because of concerns over its cost. Offices and a hotel have now been removed, although the company behind the project, Wembley National Stadium Limited, may put them back in later.

A spokesperson for WNSL said: “There are a couple of revised drawings and a couple of revised reports to be submitted, such as the economic impact assessment.”

The amendments will be made to the existing planning application – a new one is not necessary because there is little change to the design of the stadium. The application is expected to be signed off in April, when the planning gain agreement is finalised. WNSL has agreed to spend £17m on local transport infrastructure, including £9m to modernise Wembley Park underground station. The road to the stadium will also be broadened and straightened.

Last month, WNSL announced that it was to revamp its board after an independent report claimed that the stadium project had been poorly managed. WNSL has said that the new board is not expected to be in place until April, by which time it will have finalised financing details.
