£200m masterplan for Lords
The MCC has revealed a £200m masterplan aimed at ensuring Lord’s is the best ground in the world.
The phased plan will start with the redevelopment of the Warner Stand in autumn 2014 and finish with the reconstruction of the Compton and Edrich Stands in 2027.
The entire project is estimated to cost between £180m-£200m.The first phases of development, totalling £90m from 2014-2019, will be funded from the club’s own resources. The remaining phases, from 2021-2027, will be funded through a combination of MCC funds and sensible levels of borrowing.
The masterplan includes rebuilding the Warner, Tavern & Allen, Compton and Edrich Stands; re-siting the Nursery Ground towards the Wellington Road, over the Club’s leasehold land and a new entrance on Grove End Road to be the main point of access on non-match days, and which will supersede the Grace Gates as the Members’ entrance on match days.
It also includes a new Food Street to replace the existing Food Village; extensions to the Pavilion to establish more pitch-facing facilities for players and match officials and new, subterranean car-parking, access routes, waste management, catering and storage facilities.
Overall, there will be an increase to the capacity of Lord’s by 2,700 to 32,000.
It is proposed that the first application - for the new Warner Stand and the new Garden Entrance at Grove End Road - will be submitted to Westminster City Council at the end of this year. Approval for these projects will be sought from MCC Members in the spring of 2014, upon receipt of planning permission.
