Oxford Downs Cricket Club
Oxford Downs C.C. approached Club Design following an arson attack on its old clubhouse. The committee wanted to know whether grant funding might be attracted to rebuild the charred clubhouse. Grant funding was not available, but through an innovative approach to the landlord and the owner of the adjacent paddock, planning consent was achieved to sell half of the cricket ground for residential development, providing funds to build a new cricket square, half an outfield and a brand new pavilion.
Funding: Sale of part of the site for residential development.
Approximate Project Value: £0.5M
