Lord's to get £400m makeover

Plans are being drawn up for a £400 million redevelopment of Lord’s cricket ground.

The Times has reported that the proposals would see seating at the ‘home of cricket’ increased by 7,500 to almost 37,000.

Work would also include improvements to entrances, garden areas and an indoor school. A village would be created underground, housing practice facilities, food and drink outlets and a sports injury clinic among other things.

Apartments will also be built to help finance the plans. The MCC this morning ruled out selling the name of the redeveloped stadium.

Architects Herzog & de Meuron will submit the proposals to Westminster City Council after approval from members of the Marylebone Cricket Club.

Work is not expected to begin on site before 2011.
