QUEEN’S Park Football Club have secured permission for revised plans to turn their Lesser Hampden training grounds into a league-standard stadium.
Glasgow City planners have given permission for two stands — with seating for around 1,450 — at the site which is next to Hampden Park on Glasgow’s South Side.
A design document submitted with the planning application explained: “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 replaces a previous plan to 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.
