Peterborough United submit new stadium plans

Peterborough United submit new stadium plans

Friday 20th August 2021

Peterborough United have submitted plans for a new 19,000 capacity stadium. The new ground will be built in an area known as The Embankment, a few hundred yards away from London Road.

The site is just north of the River Nene and would retain the club's city centre location. If granted planning permission, the new stadium would be built in a way to make it easily expandable to 24,000 capacity in the future.

The Championship side have submitted their plans to the local council despite some opposition from nearby residents and politicians launching a "Save Peterborough Embankment" campaign.
