BOURNEMOUTH’S former chairman Eddie Mitchell was hoping to build a stunning beach stadium, but saw his plans scrapped.
The spectacular plans included a multi-million pound stadium with shops, beach huts and executive suites.

But unfortunately for Mitchell he was unable to get his proposition over the line with Poole Borough Council’s planning committee rejecting the idea.
The plans, which were set to take place in Sandbanks back in 2016, would have seen £12million invested into the area’s pavilion site.
It would have featured a 2,000 seater stadium on the beach intended for use by England‘s beach football team.
The arena would have also played host to beat volleyball, concerts, performing arts events and ice-skating in the winter.
Alongside the venue, 44 beach huts were proposed which would’ve allowed members of the public to rent them out for a stay by the sea.
Executive suites were also supposed to be part of the abandoned plans with artist’s drawings showing that they would have looked over the beach.
The area isn’t short of sporting links either with a whole host of former football managers living close by.
Unfortunately for former Bournemouth boss Mitchell his elaborate plans saw an abrupt end when planning chiefs rejected the idea over a list of concerns.
Parking issues, impact on local wildlife and a loss of open space were all cited as potential problems if the development was built.
