LORD'S cricket ground is set to benefit from a £200million facelift after Marylebone Cricket Club bosses agreed to the plans yesterday.
The MCC's masterplan for the redevelopment, drawn up after a major consultation with the club's 18,000 members, will include extensive improvements to the stands increasing the ground's capacity from 10,000 to 38,500.
The MCC also said that as part of the redevelopment, which will take place over 10 years, there was potential for retractable floodlights, a new academy and the repositioning of the museum.
Project director David Batts said nearly half MCC's membership responded and there was overwhelming support.
