Ashford United Football Club planning success

Ashford United Football Club planning success


  • Planning permission granted at Ashford United Football Club
  • Development of existing Brownfield site
  • Significant economic and community benefit


  • Community & Leisure
  • Commercial & Industrial



Planning permission has been granted for new light industrial commercial units at Ashford United Football Club, currently providing a vital community facility through its existing and proposed sports facilities. Working closely with our client and the Local Planning Authority, Bloomfields successfully demonstrated that the new commercial units would not have any adverse impact upon the local environment and that they would generate additional income to the club to allow it to fund its existing services, as well as assist with the delivery of significantly enhanced new sports and recreational facilities, for the benefit of the local community.

Bloomfields also highlighted within the application that there was a lack of provision for the type of start-up, commercial units proposed in the local area, and that the proposals would contribute to the prosperity of the rural economy through the appropriate development of an existing brownfield site. The design of the units would also provide further benefit through the new roof providing a covered area at one end of the existing football ground to further enhance supporters match day experience. The approved development will provide significant economic and community benefit and we are delighted with the outcome.
