Southend in new stadium boost

Saturday 4th April 2020

Southend United's plans to build a new stadium have been boosted with the agreement to turn Roots Hall into housing once the club have moved.

The League One club originally submitted plans to the council back in 2017, but recent developments make planning permission much more likely to be granted.

The new 14,000 seater stadium would be built at Fossetts Farm and also include a health centre, community hub and 800 new homes for rent.
