We contacted Leander Sports and Leisure who have outline planning permission to redevelop and regenerate Kent County Cricket Ground on Worsley Bridge Road to get an update.
The site is still being redeveloped and a detailed planning application will be submitted to Bromley Council for a decision by the end of the summer (hopefully September). Leander have confirmed that subject to Council approval work will start on that site as soon as possible and that this will involve bringing heavy machinery on to the site. Leander have appointed a contractor (Galliford Try plc) and their architects (Paul Davis & Partners Architects) are currently outlining a program of works.
Sadly little cricket will be played on the site this year due to the planned works. However Leander have retained the groundsman and have advised that having previously won the County Out Ground of the Year Award they have no intention of letting the ground deteriorate.
