QPR submit training ground plans

QPR have submitted a revised planning application to build a new training ground at Warren Farm in Ealing, the club have announced.

Rangers hope to get the green light for the fresh design after encountering problems since the scheme received approval in December 2013.

A decision regarding planning consent is expected in the summer.

QPR director of football Les Ferdinand said: "This is a vitally important project for the club and one in which I will have a hands on role.

"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."

The plans would see Rangers build a new complex for the first team and academy sides to include gym, medical, performance analysis, education, office and changing facilities.

There will also be a new community pavilion, providing changing facilities and a new multi-purpose social space.

Rangers have faced opposition from local campaigning groups wanting to preserve the Warren Farm area, but a High Court ruled in the club's favour last year.
