Aintree to undergo multi-million pound redevelopment

Aintree have announced major plans for a 30million redevelopment which will include new grandstands, a parade ring and winner's enclosure for the home of the Grand National.

A planning application was submitted to Sefton Council last week and it is hoped construction work can start straight after next year's National meeting.

The project will be completed in two phases and the whole job is expected to be finished in time for the 2007 National fixture.

Plans incorporate three main projects:

*The building of new grandstands.

*The re-location of the parade ring, winner's and unsaddling enclosures, plus construction of a new weighing room and stable complex.

*The building of a new permanent Aintree pavilion.

The redevelopment will be paid for from Aintree's own resources as well as with money from the Levy Board and European and regional funding.

There will be two new grandstands, built adjacent to the Queen Mother Stand, linked by a central walkway and bar areas.

They will provide terracing for 2,800 at ground level, with seating for 1,580 higher up as well as restaurants, hospitality suites and private suites overlooking the racecourse.
