The plans by Marylebone Cricket Club include the demolition of the existing 600-seat Warner Stand in the ground and the construction of a new 2,832-seat stand as well as match day control facilities, new bars and a restaurant.
The proposals comprise the first phase of a wider masterplan by the Cricket Club which includes increasing the capacity at the ground to 32,000; a new entrance; new buildings to provide shops and offices and new car parking facilities.
Grant of planning permission to phase one is subject to the completion of a Section 106 Agreement. If consented, the redevelopment is expected to start in the autumn.
