Accrington Stanley are planning to build a new 1,500 all seated stand on the Whinney Hill side of the Crown Ground. The single tiered stand, will be covered and when built may be split between home and away fans. It will also be constructed in such a way, so that corporate facilities could be added at some later stage.

Designed by the Frank Whittle Partnership the new stand proposals come after it was also announced that the Club have agreed in principle with the local council to extend the Club's existing lease on the Crown Ground to 50 years. The Club were taken over by a new owner last year and since then the Club look to be on the up, both on and off the field.
A video has been released showing artists impressions of how the new stand will look:
