Plans submitted for north stand & Hotel!

According to Daily Mail.

I had heard about a new stand to increase capacity, but not about a hotel and conferencing centre.

Worcester

Just need a successful team to complete the picture. Superbly appointed modern Sixways Ground now houses 12,000 after the opening of a new stand last weekend. A hotel/leisure complex is also planned. Owner Cecil Duckworth has formerly sunk large sums into the club, but they are now expected at least to pay their way.

Copied from the dailymail online.....

“Worcester Warriors have submitted a pre-planning application to the local council to expand Sixways and build a hotel conference centre. The club secured Premiership safety last week and have already started renovating the East Stand. They are hoping to increase capacity from 11,499 to 16,500 through additional seating, standing and luxury boxes.”

Detailed it ain’t!

With that capacity maybe grandfather rights will be merely altered so that season tickets include two seats per person instead!

Well, grandfather rights are still working at the moment for my seat. Just bought my ticket for next season.

The development won't start until this time next year

Great news to see the club push on with some development of the club, the commercial side needs to bring in additional revenue to supplement the playing side.

I am sure that there was a Worcester News article a few weeks ago with Jed stating that they were looking to only increase the North Stand, with no hotel.

Is the story accurate, or have there been second thoughts?

IIRC, the Worcester News story reported Ged as saying that they were in preliminary talks with the planners about the new stand. It could be that those plans always included a hotel but Ged was smart enough/well advised not to say anything at that time because they were still awaiting a response from the planners and didn't want to be seen as jumping the gun.

He could have risked souring relations and/or looked a prat if the response was "No chance".

Since the Worcester News article the club may have received a favourable response so can now reveal the full extent of the plans.

No inside knowledge, just guesswork.



Whatever you do, do it safely!

That would make sense.

A hotel makes such sense. If a company is looking at holding a conference, it looks for conference facilities with accommodation, therefore the club would get a double whammy. The location is good too, by the motorway and in the Midlands, perfect for national companies

What Worcester needs is a good quality hotel , something in my 40 years of living here it has never had.
Too much to hope for a Malmason or Intercontinental but maybe a Crowne Plaza as part of ICH group?

Would that be any use on a more general basis out at J6? One linked with a conference centre would make more sense mind,

Also means that visiting teams and supporters can stay on site which fills the hotel fairly regularly. All makes a lot of sense really.

Not sure any prem teams will stay next season to be honest. Newcastle would’ve been the only one who may have but teams like to just get back. European teams however I guess will.

I think the stay thing can quite often be night before, rather than night of. I know some do that sometimes, though others get famously stuck in traffic

Yes, will often travel up the night before the game for an afternoon kick-off. Certainly doesn't apply to everyone though - Glaws, Wasps, Bristol, Bath for instance.

I think that Puckrup Hall is often used, there is a golf course there as well. I am not suer that a team would want to stya that close.

It’s a pre-planning advice request , certainly not on the Wychavon planning portal . But others may know more or not

Pre Apps are not shown on the portal, only actual applications once validated are recorded.
You generally use a pre app to test the water with the planning case officer who will comment only on planning policy, but sometimes offer advice on potential problems.

That's right. Possibly not, but nice to be able to offer it. Supporters might, although town may be more of a draw.
