The Wembley arch lights up London

As part of its preparations for the 2017/18 season, Wembley National Stadium Limited (WNSL) has submitted a planning application to temporarily increase the number of full capacity events at Wembley Stadium.

The application seeks to establish a temporary cap to accommodate up to an additional 31 sporting events at Wembley Stadium between 1 August 2017 and 31 July 2018, where the available spectator capacity is increased from 51,000 up to 90,000.

The application has been submitted to Brent Council where it is to be assessed on its own merits against the prevailing planning policy. To see the planning summary, please click here.

The FA and WNSL are responsible for ensuring that local residents and the wider community are a key consideration in the organisation of any events that take place at the stadium. A consultation process is underway and further discussions will be held prior to the determination of the application.

Local residents and businesses are invited to attend an exhibition at Chalkhill Community Centre on Tuesday 21 February 4pm until 8pm to learn more about the planning application and what it entails.
