QPR Submit Revised Training Ground Plans
Tue 5th May 2015 | Football Stadiums & Facilities
Queens Park Rangers have submitted a revised planning application for a new training ground at Warren Farm in Ealing.
The scheme will create a new purpose-built training centre for the club’s First Team and Academy, alongside a new community sports facility.
This application builds upon the scheme that was permitted in December 2013 and seeks approval for the design development that has been progressed in the last 12 months.
A decision regarding planning consent is expected in the summer of 2015.
Les Ferdinand, QPR's Director of Football, told www.qpr.co.uk: “This is a vitally important project for the club and one in which I will have a hands on role.
“We are working closely with Populous and Ealing Council to ensure QPR has a state-of-the-art facility that brings the First Team, Academy and Community together in a unique hub.
“QPR has always been a club that takes pride in its local community and we will ensure that bond is strengthened with this exciting move to Warren Farm.”
The plans include a dedicated QPR building for the First Team and Academy, including gym, medical, performance analysis, education, office and changing facilities.
The community will benefit from a new community pavilion providing changing facilities and a new multi-purpose social space.
As well as grass pitches, the facility will also have a 3G pitch, an indoor 3G pitch and cricket squares.
As part of the community sports plans, QPR and QPR in the Community Trust will work with Ealing Council on building links with local clubs, schools and community groups to offer a wide range of sport and health programmes.
