Leicestershire County Cricket Club, Leicester College and Leicester Riders continue to make progress on the planned new community sports Arena at Grace Road.
There have been some relatively modest design changes made it to the plans, based on a detailed review of Sport England’s design guidelines, and these changes have been accommodated with a very modest change to the footprint of the building. There will be some further changes to the internal design of the Arena, following feedback last week from Sport England.
Once all aspects of the design are finalized, we intend to undertake the necessary detailed studies to prepare the planning application. Sport England continues to work with the project team to progress the project.
