Enabling phased redevelopment of the ground

Our role

  • Leicester Tigers is one of the most successful RUFC clubs in the country, playing in front of maximum capacity grounds and with a waiting list for season tickets.
  • Working closely with the club and the local planning authority, Turley devised a planning strategy that would enable a phased redevelopment of the ground, ensuring that the club continued to play at the ground and spread the cost of the works over a period of years.
  • The first phase comprised the single-tier north stand with a capacity of 17,000, larger than the existing Kop stand at Anfield.
  • We successfully negotiated with the LPA to screen out the need for an Environmental Statement and then co-ordinated the preparation of all of the relevant technical reports, including the preparation of a Statement of Community Consultation and Sustainability Statement.


  • The LPA has an adopted policy requiring the provision of 11% renewable energy on site, increasing by 1%pa to 15%. We worked with the M&E consultant to negotiate a scheme ensuring the LPA’s standards will be met over the phased development period.
  • Full planning permission was granted within 13 weeks.
