The director of Lionel Road Developments Limited Chris Gammon is set to resign, with work now starting on Brentford’s new ground.
Gammon first started working on the project to see the Bees relocate from their traditional Griffin Park home in 2003 and helped the Bees United’s trust takeover of the west London club from Ron Noades which raised £6m.
With planning permission on a new 20,000-seater venue in Lionel Road South now secure along with development of the surrounding area, Gammon felt the time was right to tender his resignation, although he will remain as an associate director of Brentford Football Club.
“I am immensely proud of Bees United’s role in acquiring the club from Ron Noades, the partnership and subsequent sale to Matthew Benham, the progress made in bringing our plans for the new stadium at Lionel Road to fruition and my contribution to these achievements,” Gammon said.
“As a Bees fan I am looking forward to next season and of course beyond to the opening of the new stadium.”
Brentford chairman Cliff Crown added: “On behalf of everyone at the club and all our fans I would like to thank Chris for his commitment, dedication and the enormous contribution he has made to the Brentford Community Stadium project over many years.”
