New security fencing
looks likely to be installed at the Old Trafford cricket ground in Manchester after Lancashire County Cricket Club were given the go-ahead to begin redevelopment.
Three Court of Appeal judges have the green light after it was argued by Derwent Holdings that the Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council had acted unfairly in giving permission for construction to commence.
The club could begin building works this September and aims to get it ready by the beginning of the 2013 cricket season.
Jim Cumbes, chief executive of Lancashire County Cricket Club, said that today (July 4th) is one of the biggest in the club's history.
"If we don't redevelop then 150-odd years of history would have been in danger of disappearing," he explained.
"With redevelopment, I am confident that Old Trafford can continue as an international cricket ground."
Founded in 1864, the club's Old Trafford ground currently has a capacity of 19,000.
