QPR Get Go Ahead For Warren Farm Site

Thu 25th Apr 2013 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Queens Park Rangers football club have been given the go ahead to progress its plans for a state-of-the-art training ground facility at the Warren Farm site.

At a meeting yesterday evening (24th April) Ealing Councillors voted in favour of granting planning permission for the club's proposal to build a full multi-purpose Elite Training Facility and Community Sports Complex on the Warren Farm site.

It is intended that works will begin in the coming months, with the facility set to be ready ahead of the 2015/16 season.

QPR CEO Philip Beard told www.qpr.co.uk: “This is a landmark day for Queens Park Rangers Football Club.

“We are hugely grateful for the support shown by all parties, especially the local residents, who we hope will benefit extensively from the range of facilities and activities that will become available over the course of the coming years.

“There is a lot of hard work ahead of us as we finalise the design details and tendering of the project, but today’s news is a massive step forward and a significant milestone for the club.”

The Elite Training Facility will house the entire football department and will provide grass pitches for the first team and academy, an indoor 3G pitch, an outdoor 3G artificial pitch, extensive gym, sports science and rehabilitation areas, Academy classrooms, a large number of changing rooms, media, catering and grounds maintenance facilities.

The development will be designed to meet the Club’s professional training requirements, and will meet the Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) Category 1 criteria, with a layout of natural and artificial training pitches and grids. These facilities will provide a platform for the development of home grown talent.

Community facilities will be developed in line with Sport England and National Governing Bodies standards. The community facilities and community development programme will be managed by QPR in the Community Trust.

The community will have some of the best facilities for people of all ages and levels of ability to participate in a wide variety of sports including football, rugby, cricket, basketball and netball. Sporting programmes and activities led by professionally qualified coaches will be implemented, and will include input and appearances from professional players from QPR.
