Ecopark Stadium’s outline planning permission approved

Ecopark Stadium will be the new home of Forest Green Rovers Football Club with important new facilities for its local community.

Forest Green Rovers has established a holistic vision for the site to retain its pastoral qualities whilst adding new amenities for the town.

Embodying low carbon construction methods and operational processes, it will be the first all wood football stadium - with almost every element made of sustainably sourced timber. As a building material, laminated timber is highly durable, safe, recyclable and beautiful.

With the team’s community and supporters at its core, fans will be as close as five meters from the pitch. The stadium’s continuous spectator bowl will maximise matchday atmosphere. The stadium’s design incorporates the club’s future growth.

Forest Green Rovers’ Ecopark Stadium aims to be carbon neutral (or even carbon negative with the provision of on-site renewable energy generation) - demonstrating sustainable architecture can be dynamic and beautiful.
