Brentford have taken a step closer to making huge improvements to their training facilities after Hounslow Council granted planning permission for new buildings at their Jersey Road base.

The initial plans are now subject to the approval by the Mayor of London are for a temporary facility to be operational before the end of the year.

They plan to be used by the club’s first and B teams for the next five years.

Brentford’s long-term vision includes plans for a permanent, state-of-the-art performance centre on the site.

A club statement read: "This decision means that the club can replace the existing buildings at Jersey Road. The new training facility, whilst temporary, will be of a much higher standard and represent a significant improvement on what we have now.

"It will act as a stepping-stone towards our longer-term vision for a state-of-the-art performance centre."

The announcement follows a consultation process with the local community, and preliminary works are now underway.
