How Millwall‘s proposed new stadium could look like? Pictures have emerged after the club, renewal and council held “positive talks” on the plans.

On Thursday night, the Championship outfit revealed that the land sale agreement is terminated, meaning they can finally look at the redevelopment of land surrounding The Den.

It also opens the way for an urban regeneration project that can transform for the good of the community. Millwall hope to agree a new lease with Lewisham Council which enables them to develop new plans for themselves, its stadium, the adjoining land, our Community Trust and the whole community.

Plans for the New Bermondsey redevelopment of ten hectares of land close by to the ground has previously been controversial after Lewisham tried to buy land near the stadium for developer renewal’s use.

Then there were fears that could mean Millwall would be forced to leave their home of since 1993, something that has been documented many times over the last few years.

Strategic objectives as part of the plan, adopted by Cabinet last night, include “to facilitate the future aspirations of Millwall Football Club at the heart of the site.

“Millwall Football Stadium will be enhanced and expanded to accommodate a larger crowd as the Club seeks promotion to the English Premier League.

“The Stadium will sit proudly at the heart of the Development Area welcoming visitors every day to new up to date conferencing and banqueting facilities.

“Following positive discussions with Millwall FC and Renewal, we have agreed a new vision for the area around Millwall at Mayor and Cabinet tonight,” said Mayor of Lewisham, Cllr Damien Egan.

“Local residents can now have their say on Renewal’s plans to deliver new homes and new jobs.”

3,500 new homes, a new overground station near Surrey Canal Road and a new indoor sports centre are also planned to be built.

However, the council also ‘raised the spectre’ of compulsory purchase powers for “certain interests” in the site “to acquire and facilitate the delivery of Surrey Canal Triangle as a whole.”

“Ongoing dialogue needs to continue between the principal landowners and those with smaller interests to enable the successful delivery of the regeneration,” add council documents.

A public exhibition to discuss Renewal’s proposals will be held at The Thunderdome on Stockholm Road, SE16 3LP on Tuesday 11 February, 4pm – 8pm and Sunday 16 February, 10am to 2pm.
