MCC members set to vote against building residential flats at Lord's

A consultation conducted by the MCC Committee has found a large majority of members have concerns about the proposed scheme, involving a private contractor, which would see two 10-storey blocks built at the Nursery End.

As a result, the committee has recommended an alternative plan for the Compton and Edrich stands to be redeveloped be voted for at a special general meeting in September.

MCC chairman Gerald Corbett said: "All members have been consulted. Many have spoken. The committee has decided. The club will now vote and we will then move on."
