English Premier League (EPL) team Queens Park Rangers (QPR) has submitted a revised planning application for a new training facility at Warren Farm in Ealing, west London.
Planning permission was already agreed for the site in December 2014, however the club has since developed a new set of design proposals. A decision on planning consent is expected sometime this summer.
If successful, the club will build a new training center that will house the firm team and the academy, with a dedicated building including a gym and medical, performance analysis, education, office and changing facilities. As well as natural turf fields, the facility will also have a 3G artificial field, an indoor 3G field and cricket squares.
There will also be a community sports facility, including a new pavilion providing changing facilities and a new multi-purpose social space.
In a club statement, Les Ferdinand, QPR’s director of football, said, “We are working closely with Populous and Ealing Council to ensure QPR has a state-of-the-art facility that brings the first team, academy and community together in a unique hub. QPR has always been a club that takes pride in its local community and we will ensure that bond is strengthened with this exciting move to Warren Farm.”
