Planning Application made to upgrade club facilites
Burnley Football Club can confirm a development planning application for new office, hospitality and retail space at Turf Moor.
The club has submitted to the local council a request to build new suspended first floor offices and hospitality areas between the current hospitality lounges in the Bob Lord Stand and the existing office facility, situated over the ticket office and Clarets Store.
The plans are to then locate all office staff in the new first floor offices and create a matchday ticket office in existing offices in the ground floor of the Bob Lord Stand.
The current building, which currently houses the club offices, ticket office and shop, will be demolished to build and create 4,500sq ft of ground floor retail space. This will include weekday (non-matchday) ticket sales.
On the first floor it is hoped to build a new club museum.
There is no timescale for work at this stage, as the project is at the planning stage.
