Transformation of the Kia Oval ground, the home of Surrey County Cricket Club, heralds a new era for this overlooked Zone 2 area.
There are plans to create a new neighbourhood around the landmark south London stadium, turning it into a “modern-day Coliseum” with new shops and restaurants along its perimeter, while the stadium itself will be opened up with architecture that will embrace the community and spur on widescale regeneration in the surrounding area.
The cricket club and the landowner propose a £50 million scheme to rebuild two spectator stands, boosting capacity by 8,000 and making it the largest dedicated cricket ground outside India and Australia.
The scheme will open up street-facing areas beneath the stands, creating space for shops, restaurants and local businesses.
