Plans for the project, which will include a grandstand, have been submitted to the Plymouth City Council planning department where a consultation process is currently taking place until 3rd July.

Using your full name will add more weight to your views.

The whole development is set for completion in summer 2015 with Higher Home Park becoming a hub for sporting and leisure facilities in Plymouth.
Offering an impressive list of facilities, Higher Home Park will include a state-of-the-art ice arena, multiplex cinema, quality hotel, a new grandstand for Argyle, plus cafés, restaurants and shops.

The construction of the new £10m grandstand, which will not cost Argyle a penny, is scheduled to start this autumn with a finish date of November 2014 and is set to generate between £1 million and £2 million per year for the football club.

This fantastic project will provide a huge boost to Plymouth as a city and to the local economy.

During construction there will be in excess of 600 construction workers jobs during the two year build period and 400 jobs created for the management and provision of the new facilities and services when the regeneration is complete.

As well as the state of the art grandstand, cinema, hotel, and ice arena there will also be significant park landscape enhancements including creation of new tree lined routes, statement ‘gateways’ to the park at key entrances improving the sense of arrival to this special green space and provision of changing rooms for youth sports field users, including improvements to Cottage Field.

Once again, your comments can be sent by email to planningconsents@plymouth.gov.uk using reference number 13/00942/ful.
