Scunthorpe United planning major changes to Glanford Park

Scunthorpe United granted planning permission for new stadium

Thursday 11th July 2019

Scunthorpe United have been granted planning permission for a new stadium on the site of Glanford Park.

The club are planning to spend £30m transforming Glanford Park into an 11,000 capacity venue which will also be able to host concerts and other non-sporting events.

The work will be carried one stand at a time “over the next few seasons” which will allow the club to continue playing at the stadium whilst the ground is rebuilt.

Scunny will start with the east stand (away end) first, before working their way around the stadium. Other improvements include better food and drink facilities as well as cantilever roofs, meaning unrestricted views from every seat.

The League 2 side originally submitted a planning application last year after a proposed new stadium at the nearby Lincolnshire Lakes project fell through.

A separate planning application for 160 apartments next to the ground has not yet been approved.
