New plans to redevelop Gloucestershire CCC in Bristol


A new planning application to redevelop Gloucestershire County Cricket Club has been put

forward by the club. Earlier this year, Bristol City Council refused an application to expand

the Nevil Road site due to the height of the flats included in the scheme.

Changes to the previous plans include removing one storey, so the central penthouse level

is six storeys high. The club had considered a move to Filton Airfield to continue to attract

international cricket to the city.

The expansion would ensure all 147 flats needed for the development can still go ahead.

Further improvements at Ashley Down include increasing the capacity of the stand to 17,000

seats, the building of a new media centre and a general upgrading of facilities.

It comes as the two organisations agreed a £400,000 bridging loan until the outcome of a

planning application is resolved.

The club said the temporary secured loan between itself and Bristol City Council would be

repaid regardless of any outcome of the planning application.
