Location: Cheshunt, Herts.

LW Developments achieved planning consent for Cheshunt Sports Village, a mixed use scheme at the heart of which is a new stadium for Cheshunt Football Club.

The sports village will home Cheshunt FC with a newly built 2,000-capacity stadium, which has been designed to accommodate 5,000 spectators in the future to safeguard the club for the Football League. Alongside the new stadium, Cheshunt Sports Village will include 163 new homes and over 70,000sq ft of new community, leisure, and business facilities.

LW Developments promoted the scheme through the Local Plan process, which was adopted in June 2020. The green light was finally given in September 2021 when the council’s refusal was overturned in a public inquiry.

The plans will see a major redevelopment of the club’s current Theobalds Lane site, which will safeguard the club’s future and offer new facilities for the wider community. It will boost the area’s employment rates and develop new education and community outreach programmes alongside the new community and business facilities.

The plans also propose 163 private and affordable homes to be built in the new scheme with properties ranging from one bed apartments to four bed family homes. A wide range of new sports, leisure and business facilities will also be available in the village for the wider community.

LW Developments believe that Cheshunt Sports Village will become an exciting new community, bringing enduring social and economic benefits to the town, as well as progressing Cheshunt Football Club up the football pyramid.

The next stage of the development process will see the club seek an agreement with the landowners Broxbourne Council and Hertfordshire County Council to determine how the scheme will be brought forward.
