Chelsea's plan to expand Stamford Bridge to 60,000 appear to be over, for the time being at least, as their granted planning permission is due to expire this month.

The Premier League club were given permission by the City of London to expand their current west London home in March 2017 but they have failed to act on their initial request.

Chelsea's project, which would have cost in the region of £1billion, would have seen the club demolish the club's museum and the Millennium and Copthorne Hotels.



The west London outfit have not started any work on their plans with their planning permission expiring in just under a week.

'Chelsea Football Club announces today that it has put its new stadium project on hold,' a statement read in May 2018.

News of Chelsea's failure to expand Stamford Bridge will come as a blow to the club with London rivals Arsenal, West Ham and Tottenham all moving into bigger stadiums in recent times.

The Blues can make small adjustments to their ground but will have to re-apply for planning permission if they are to go ahead with their previous plans.
