Eco Park / Forest Green Rovers FC

Stroud, Gloucestershire

Client : Ecotricity
Value : £100 Million

An ambitious masterplan to create a £100 million eco-friendly sports and green technology complex, including a new 5,000 capacity home for Forest Green Rovers, has been submitted to planning chiefs.

FWP’s architecture and design team has developed Ecotricity founder Dale Vince’s vision for Eco Park, next to junction 13 of the M5 in Gloucestershire.

Eco Park has been submitted to Stroud District Council for outline planning permission and if the project gets the go ahead the 100-acre sports and green technology development could create up to 4,000 new jobs.

Located on either side of the A419, half of Eco Park will consist of state-of-the-art sporting facilities, including an all-seater stadium for National League club Forest Green Rovers, grass and all weather training pitches, multi-disciplinary facilities and a sports science hub.
