New stand is part of £100m redevelopment of Selhurst Park

Premier League side Crystal Palace has been given planning to redevelop its ageing Selhurst Park ground in south London.

Croydon council’s planning committee gave the club the green light at the end of last week to proceed with the £100m project and its decision will now be referred to London mayor Sadiq Khan for final approval.

The plans revolve around redeveloping the ground’s 1924-built main stand, which will see the existing structure torn down and a new stand erected, along with the demolition of a number of council homes next to the stadium, with affected residents being re-housed in new houses rebuilt nearby.
