Surrey County Cricket Club

Planning permission granted for additional seating and addressing public realm improvements.

Iceni assists with increase in seating capacity and public realm improvements for KIA Oval.

Iceni Transport were appointed by Surrey Cricket Club to assist with their application to increase seating capacity at their ground, as well as address S106 requirements from previous permissions to improve the public realm.

Proposals for the site included the provision of an additional 1,000 seats to be located in the OCS Stand at the KIA Oval Cricket Ground. To provide these new seats it was proposed to extend the existing seating deck to the boundary wall in the north corner and south-west corner of the stand.

Iceni’s Transport Team advised the client on transport matters, undertaking an assessment of matchday trips and producing a Transport Assessment to support the application which was successfully approved.

In addition, extensive consultation with the Local Authority and Transport for London was required to discharge conditions in regard to local highway improvements which included closing redundant vehicular accesses and reinstating kerbs and footways in order to upgrade the public realm surrounding the site.
