Bristol development given green light
Gloucestershire have received a significant boost after Bristol City Council’s Development Control Committee approved planning permission for the development of the County Ground.
The decision will enable Gloucestershire to provide a new pavilion, state-of-the art media centre, business centre, improved community programme and upgraded cricket facilities.
This will support the growth plans for cricket in the region and enable the club to create a venue capable of supporting international games.
Gloucestershire chief executive Tom Richardson said: “We are very pleased that the committee has come to this decision as it finally allows us to realise our ambitions in bringing the very best of what cricket can offer to our home city.
“We have many people to thank – it has been a long journey and a huge amount of hard work has gone into it, which in turn has been supported by residents across Bristol, including our local area of Bishopston.
“We can now look forward to making the next stage of our plans happen.”
