Sports and Leisure Planning

Sport & Leisure Planning

Savills is the leading planning consultancy on major sports projects.

We have a detailed knowledge of the operation and requirements for major sports clubs and event organisations. Our team advises on the strategy and implementation to deliver stadia. Sports schemes are very high profile, have strict delivery timelines and challenging funding structures.

Savills was the lead planning advisor to the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (LOCOG) across all competition venues and training bases. We also advised the Olympic Delivery Authority on the Olympic Stadium, and subsequently its transformation into legacy mode as a major football stadium.

Our event expertise is reinforced with an appointment by England 2015 as planning consultants on the Rugby World Cup 2015.

Major football stadia expertise is highlighted through the work for Arsenal FC (Emirates Stadium), Tottenham Hotspur FC, Everton FC and Queen’s Park Rangers relocation schemes.

Beyond football, Savills advises the Rugby Super League on stadia as part of the franchise process and has advised Surrey CCC on major development at the Kia Oval and Warwickshire CCC at Edgbaston.
