PLANS by Queens Park FC to transform its Lesser Hampden training ground into a ‘fully functioning’ stadium have been approved by Glasgow City Council.
The Scottish League One side submitted revised proposals in December for the build, which would allow for the club to potentially expand the new stadium in the future.
Having now received the green light, the plans will see the build of a 1,000 capacity East Stand; new dressing rooms; and a moved and resurfaced pitch to provide space for a new South Stand accommodating 500 visiting supporters at the site which lies just yards from the country’s national stadium.
Further to this will be the creation of a new area for directors and sponsors and the internal refitting of the JB McAlpine Pavilion, which the club said will give more space for social facilities and other stadium-related essentials.
The plans read, “The proposal aims to adapt the current Queen’s Park Football Club’s training grounds at Lesser Hampden to a fully functioning stadium, by adding a new East Stand and South Stand to increase the current capacity by circa 1,450.”
