Lancashire County Cricket Club (LCCC) has submitted plans for a major £200m redevelopment of the Old Trafford cricket ground in Manchester to the local authority.

Trafford Council is now set to consider the development proposals, which form part of a wider sports-led regeneration project aimed at transforming a 50-acre (20-hectare) surrounding the venue. Construction company Morgan Ashurst has already commenced work on the first stage of the stadium redevelopment, which includes a new £12m conference and events suite - The Point - due for completion in July 2010.

Designs for the second stage of the project, which have been drawn up by Manchester-based architects BDP, feature an enhanced pavilion, a hotel, new player and media facilities and an extended indoor cricket school. Two new grandstands will boost the venue's seating capacity to 15,000, which can be further increased to 25,000 with the installation of temporary seating for major events.

The proposals, which also include a Tesco supermarket near the stadium, are designed to guarantee Old Trafford's status as an international cricket venue, while also helping to reverse local economic decline. LCCC chief executive Jim Cumbes said: "The club makes a huge contribution to the local and regional economy and is a critical part of the region's international sporting infrastructure.

"It's a time of fierce competition for the rights to stage international Test matches, which has seen the ground lose the Ashes this year. The significant investment in the new facilities will ensure that Old Trafford regains its rightful place on the international Test match circuit in time for the 2013 Ashes Test." LCCC is working in partnership with Trafford Council, Tesco and Manchester-based Ask Developments.
