Warwickshire County Cricket Club | Edgbaston | Stadium | Comp.

Apparently gone in for planning today. Post images, info here!

Some taken from other threads:

Quote:
The cricket business in itself does not generate sufficient profits for the scale of development necessary to bring the ground up to standard. To enable these works to proceed, therefore, the club is releasing significant parts of its grounds along with adjacent land it has acquired for a major mixed-use development. The details of the proposed uses will be confirmed upon the receipt of the planning application, but are expected to include office, retail, restaurant/café, hotel, residential and possibly leisure uses. The club has appointed a developer and has indicated that the financial resources required are available to ensure the redevelopment proceeds
And BCC have passed the CPO's.

Won't they be getting a load of grief off the people who live on the Pershore Road side of things?

What is it with this city, the locals compalianed about permanent floodlights that were only going to be used 6 times a years, so they never got built!

Edgbaston homeowners 'must sell'

An artist's impression of a preliminary design was released in 2007
Four homeowners have been told they must sell up to allow for a £30m revamp of Edgbaston cricket ground.

Birmingham city councillors have backed compulsory purchase orders on the homes in Pershore Road after an application from Warwickshire County Cricket Club.

The club has already bought eight homes in the road and said a "world-class stadium" was needed for the ground to continue hosting international matches.

Some residents have pledged to fight to stay in their homes.

Members of the council's cabinet committee dealing with property approved the compulsory purchase orders at a meeting on Tuesday.

Regeneration 'fact'

Neville Summerfield, cabinet member for regeneration, said the move was necessary to allow progress.

He said: "If the city council and other authorities did not instigate these procedures then we wouldn't have any motorways, we wouldn't have any railways, we wouldn't have canals and we wouldn't have any major developments.

"And unfortunately it's a fact of regeneration."

Warwickshire CCC wants to build a new pavilion and stand and increase the ground's capacity to more than 25,000.

The club said it was "critical" the scheme went ahead to secure Test matches in the future.

There were also plans to build a hotel, office and residential elements as part of the scheme.

Alexandros Layos, who has lived in Pershore Road for three years, said his family were very reluctant to leave their home and found the situation "very upsetting".

"I'm definitely going to make my stand and resist any authority that makes me go away," he said.

I've found some images from the planning application and put them on my blog if someone could repost them as I can't post them on photobucket.

Rider Levett Bucknall hired on £30m Edgbaston cricket scheme
17 November, 2008

By Olivia Boyd

QS will project manage construction of Broadway Malyan’s design for Warwickshire cricket ground expansion

Consultant Rider Levett Bucknall has been appointed to oversee the £30m revamp of Edgbaston cricket ground in Warwickshire, designed by architect Broadway Malyan.

The firm said it has been named project manager and QS on the scheme, which will increase capacity at the ground by 4,000 if given the go-ahead.

As well as the provision of additional seating, facilities for media, players and guests will also be upgraded and new changing rooms, bars and restaurants built.

Birmingham-based urban regeneration company MCD Developments has been appointed to deliver the project. Planning consultant Turley Associates is also on the team.

If the scheme gets the green light from UK planners, work is scheduled to start next autumn.

The CPO is for the houses between the crossroads and indoor cricket centre. WCCC already own most of them I believe.

The designs do not appear to be as nice or 'artistically merged' ones on the BBC site, shame but should be good news for the club.

As Warwickshire are'nt playing as well as they use to; does this mean the Birmingham Stadium thing is out the window?

Well they abandoned the plan for joint Cricket and Football stadium a while back.
This redevelopment will improve Edgbaston but there are plans for a new City of Birmingham stadium for the Blues as part of the Big City Plan.

They said they might use COBS for international or night cricket, but they had to keep Edgbaston - the history!

They didn't decide not to go there, the entire plan for the stadium and surrounding sports village was scrapped due to the fact that Las Vegas Sands did not bid for the supercasino. And the idiotic prats and BCC decided to support the NEC bid anyway. The plan didn't seem to get much support at all anyway, the only reason why it was mooted was because they wanted to maximise the profitability of the stadium.

To be honest, this design is a bit of a let down compared to what to the concept drawings we saw in the BBC article but it was inevitable that value engineering would come in to play at some point. At least Edgbaston will develop an identity of its own through this.

They did decide not to go there! There was a number of considerations and retaining their own ground was better for a number of reasons. The pillilou with the new stadium compounded the fact for staying where they were and also finance has been a massive factor not least on that decision but also for this redevelopment. Thankfully here the council has worked with them on the CPO.
