Following crowd troubles in the 1980s, and regulations imposed after the Taylor Report, several English league stadiums have been built or completely redeveloped in the last few years. Prior to 1988, however, the last newly built Football League ground in England was Roots Hall, Southend, which was opened in 1955.
Stadiums which are currently in development include:
|City of Manchester Stadium (redevelopment)||c. 61,000||Manchester City||In August 2015 construction of the first two phases of stadium expansion were completed and subsequently passed all safety requirements at a specially organised test event on 12 August 2015. The South Stand has been extended with the addition of a third tier of seats and three rows of additional pitchside seating have also been added to all stands, expanding the current capacity of CoMS to 55,097. A final expansion phase, adding a matching third tier to the North Stand, is expected to commence some time shortly (but the work schedule is still to be publicly announced). Completion of this third expansion phase will bring the stadium's total capacity to in excess of 61,000.|
|Stamford Bridge (redevelopment)||c. 60,000||Chelsea||On 30 June 2015, Chelsea unveiled plans to expand the stadium to a 60,000 seater. The exhibition held at Stamford Bridge, for local residents, businesses, season ticket holders and members provided a glimpse for Chelsea fans of blueprints for a rebuilt 60,000-capacity stadium.|
|Bramley Moore||c. 52,000||Everton||On 24 March 2017, Everton announced they had agreed to purchase the land at Bramley-Moore Dock located in Vauxhall, Liverpool with intent to build a new £300m-plus stadium to build community sights near to the new ground as well.|
|Anfield (redevelopment)||c. 61,000||Liverpool||Construction for an extension to the Main Stand began on 8 December 2014. This extension increased the stadium capacity to 54,074, making it one of the largest all-seater single stands in European football. There are future plans to expand the Anfield Road Stand which would bring the stadium size to around 61,000.|
|City Ground (redevelopment)||c. 38,000||Nottingham Forest||On 28 February 2019 the club confirmed an extended lease on The City Ground. This extended lease means the club was now able to proceed with plans to redevelop The City Ground and surrounding area. Central to this redevelopment will be the replacement of the current Peter Taylor Stand with a new 10,000-seater stand, and improvements to the Trentside area, Brian Clough and Bridgford Stands. |
The club are hopeful that building work will commence at the end of the 2019–20 season. The new, modern, state-of-the-art structure will see The City Ground's capacity become the highest in the East Midlands, reaching 38,000 after completion.
|Power Court Stadium Project||c. 17,500||Luton Town||Proposed new stadium for Luton Town on the Power Court area of Luton town centre. Aiming for completion by the start of the 2020–21 season.|
|York Community Stadium||c. 8,000||York City||Proposed community stadium to be run by City of York Council and shared with York City Knights.|
|Project Blue Yonder||TDB||Carlisle United||Proposed new stadium for Carlisle United with a tentative target date of the start of the 2018–19 season. It is locally known as the "Blue Yonder" project due to its location outside the city.|

A large number of English football clubs have ongoing schemes to redevelop existing grounds, or to move to newly constructed stadiums. A trend towards all-seater stadiums was initially prescribed by the Taylor Report, and was originally a condition only of Premier League admission. It has now become a requirement that within three years of a club's first promotion to the Championship all paying spectators are seated, even if the club is subsequently relegated. This page provides an (incomplete) list and description of those clubs who have planned new stadiums or refurbishments, or who have already moved/refurbished since around the time of the Taylor Report.
