AFL’s redevelopment of Edgbaston survives appeal

  • Comment

The Court of Appeal has rejected a late attempt to block AFL Architects’ £30 million proposed redevelopment of Edgbaston cricket ground

Local residents raised concerns over the scale of the building and the impact the stadium on the surrounding area.

The decision means that construction will continue as planned with the stadium, home of Warwickshire County Cricket Club (WCCC), expected to be completed in the summer of 2011.

The appearance of the ground will be totally altered as the capacity is boosted to 25,000 with the addition of a major new stand on the south side along with the construction of a new pavilion and media centre.

WCCC chief executive Colin Povey said: ‘The redevelopment of the ground is critical to ensure Edgbaston keeps its competitive edge and remains a worthy contender in the race to secure international matches.

‘The result is not only fantastic news for us, our players, members and cricket fans, but also for the economy of the West Midlands.’
