New Plans for Development
GCCC SHOWS NEW PLANS FOR DEVELOPMENT OF COUNTY GROUND
Gloucestershire County Cricket Club has released the first images detailing a new planning application for the development of its home on Nevil Road in Ashley Down, Bristol.
The plans for the County Ground are designed to secure the future of Gloucestershire County Cricket Club (GCCC) in Bristol, providing new facilities to support the growth plans for cricket in the region and a venue capable of supporting international games.
In January, the scheme was narrowly rejected mainly due to the height. Since then, GCCC has been working to incorporate this feedback into the development.
The new plans will be on show at Gloucestershire County Cricket Club on 14 and 15 March between 3pm – 7.30pm.
They include removing one storey, so the penthouse level to the central part of the proposal is six storeys high. To accommodate the 12 flats removed through the reduction in height, the building will be extended at the Kennington Avenue end.
This will ensure that all 147 flats needed for the development can still go ahead.
Chief Executive Tom Richardson said: “The Club is very keen to make the revised plans work. We have listened to our neighbours and responded to concerns raised by the planning committee and see the new proposal as the best possible compromise.
Tom added: “It is very important to us that we hear what the local community and our neighbours think about our plans and are looking for feedback on the changes to help us finalise the proposals before submitting a new application.”
