Phase 3: Edgbaston Stadium & Community Masterplan

Warwickshire County Cricket Club and Birmingham City Council has formally launched a bid to the Government’s Levelling Up Fund for a new Masterplan to transform Edgbaston Stadium and support the surrounding community.

Edgbaston Stadium & Community Masterplan will create a mixed-use destination with cricket and community at its core, realising the legacy of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. We will combine elite sport, conferencing and events with community assets in order to improve health and social care, education, employment and social cohesion in the area.

“Edgbaston is one of the world’s best-loved cricket grounds, having been the backdrop for great sporting drama for nearly 140 years. These proposals help realise the legacy of the recently-concluded Commonwealth Games, creating a welcoming place for our whole community to enjoy.”

Community is at the heart of the Masterplan, with proposals including a new stadium-based multi-use community hub with the potential for an NHS walk-in centre, as well as a second community hub at the former Police Station site in Quinton. The Edgbaston plaza will provide a venue for community markets, open-air screenings and more, as well as becoming a natural home for other cultural events like Eid and Diwali celebrations.

Masterplan partners include Compass Group UK & Ireland, who will be investing in Learning, Development & Apprenticeship Centres that will help develop much-needed digital, catering, and hospitality skills.

An on-site hotel is also being considered, linked to the redevelopment of the existing Raglan and Priory stands, which will serve the stadium’s growing conference and events business, as well as providing accommodation during major sporting events

Phase 2: Plaza and The Edgbaston Residences

Works have begun to transform land at Edgbaston Stadium to create a new entrance plaza, car parking facilities and ‘The Edgbaston Residences’ complex, which will comprise 375 high quality retail apartments and new retail and leisure opportunities.

Winvic Construction has been appointed as the main contractor to begin the £93 million project by Warwickshire County Cricket Club & PATRIZIA AG.

All works are expected to be completed in the second half of 2023 with the plaza, landscaping and car parking works completed by Spring 2022.

Despite the barriers created by the COVID pandemic and national lockdowns, we have been able to navigate a way through and are delighted that we can now get this major redevelopment project underway, which will transform our stadium footprint and the surrounding facilities.

The 375 apartments within the Edgbaston Residences are a build to rent (BTR) scheme and offer car parking and cycle storage. Approximately 20,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space is available on the ground floor

Housing Minister Rt Hon Christopher Pincher MP said: “I am delighted that work has begun on the second phase of the transformation of Edgbaston Stadium, which will lead to over 370 new homes for local people in Birmingham, with retail and leisure opportunities to support a thriving local economy.”

Warwickshire CCC’s key advisors on the project were Savills, Gowlings WLG & Wilson Owen Owens.

Phase 3 of our Masterplan includes the next phase of redevelopment to the stadium, details of which will be released later in 2021.

Phase 1: South Stand and West Stand

Phase 1 of the Edgbaston Masterplan saw the £32 million redevelopment of the South and West Stands, which created some of the best facilities of its kind created for spectators, hospitality guests, players and match officials.

Following the demolition of around one third of the stadium, this phase of the Masterplan completed ahead of the England men’s 2011 Test match versus India, which saw the hosts go top of the ICC men’s Test match world rankings.
