QUEEN’S Park Football Club have drawn up revised plans to turn their Lesser Hampden training grounds into a league-standard stadium.
Two stands, with seating for around 1,450, are proposed for the site which next to Hampden Park on Glasgow’s South Side.
A design document submitted with the planning application explains: “For Lesser Hampden to become a licensed stadium, the club intend to develop new stands on the east and south of the site, with associated infrastructure.”
The east stand will have capacity for 952 spectators and the south stand will have room for 484 people.
There will also be four food and beverage outlets (two per stand) and facilities such as toilets, First Aid room and match control room.
The proposal, now pending consideration by City planners, replaces a previous plan create seating for about 1,700 fans.
A separate application for a new 40-seat directors’ stand with hospitality suite was also made recently.
The club had been using the adjacent national stadium but Hampden Park is now owned by the Scottish Football Association meaning Queen’s Park can no longer play their 1st X1 competitive matches there.
