Anderlecht requested a new building permit to enlarge the Vanden Stock Stadium to 30.300 seats. Despite the plans for a new national stadium in Brussels, which could house Anderlecht, the club keeps investing in their current home

The previous building permit was not granted since the local residents complained about the impact on their homes. By enlarging the stadium, they would be deprived of sunlight. Anderlecht's architect now found a way to increase the stadium as planned, but the design is now 8 meters lower than first planned.

It is very likely though that the residents will also have complaints about this design. The club is not giving up on the Vanden Stock Stadium until the decision about the national stadium is final.
