Southend United F.C.’s proposals are for the re-development of their existing outdated stadium at Roots Hall into a new residential quarter designed by CZWG. 

The Roots Hall scheme, located within the older part of the newly designated city will provide 502 new homes, 30% of which will be affordable rent on the 3-hectare stadium site, comprising houses and apartments in buildings ranging from 3-8 storeys, making a significant contribution to meeting the local housing need by unlocking the potential of the site.

The scheme will also provide a total of 6,700 sqm of publicly accessible open space in addition to 4,630 sqm of residents’ amenity and play space. Echoing the former football pitch, the Garden Square (representing the existing pitch), a new formal space with a central pavilion feature, lies at the heart of the development.

 Once the larger Fossetts Farm stadium is operational, Southend F.C.’s long-awaited relocation will release the Roots Hall site to commence works.
