Brighton have submitted plans for a pounds 25m sports and leisure complex on council-owned playing fields on the outskirts of the town. The ambitious development at Waterhall, currently occupied by Brighton rugby club, is aimed at building a multi-purpose stadium for the whole community. A 15,000 all-seat stadium, eventually rising to a capacity of 25,000, could become the new shared home for the Seagulls, but they have yet to secure a ground for next season.

Hereford United have submitted plans to South Herefordshire District Council to build a pounds 5m 10,000 all-seat stadium on 55 acres of farmland outside the city. United, relegated from the Football League last month, would need to spend pounds 2.5m to upgrade their Edgar Street ground to meet League requirements if they were to win the GM Vauxhall Conference.
