Queens Park Rangers Training Ground, Warren Farm
Savills Planning worked with QPR to secure full planning permission for the development of a new first team and academy training centre at Warren Farm, Ealing.
The proposals included a state-of-the-art training centre, indoor pitch, flood lit 3G pitch, 3 first team pitches and 7 academy pitches along with new community facilities and re-provision of 11 community football pitches and 3 cricket wickets. This was seen as a significant achievement given that the entire site is formed by Metropolitan Open Land.
Whilst the proposals gained significant support, a local residents group decided to challenge the application. Following a failed attempt to have the application call-in, the residents group pursued a claim for Judicial Review. The claim was rejected at the High Court in March 2014 and a further application was rejected at the newly formed Planning Court on the 13 May 2014. Construction is due to commence in the summer.
