Queens Park Rangers have confirmed the club has been given permission to proceed with plans to build a £30 million training facility and community sports complex.

Ealing councillors have voted in favour of the top facilities, which is to be based at Warren Farm. And, the hope is that it will be ready ahead of the 2015/16 season.

Good news has been hard to come by at QPR this season, but this will surely reassure fans that the club is planning for the future, even if the plans do factor in relegation from the Premier League. 

CEO of QPR Philip Beard spoke to The Daily Mail of his delight at the news that the plans have been approved by the council.

"This is a landmark day for Queens Park Rangers Football Club, we are hugely grateful for the support shown by all parties, especially the local residents, who we hope will benefit extensively from the range of facilities and activities that will become available.

"There is a lot of hard work ahead of us as we finalise the design details and tendering of the project, but today's news is a massive step forward and a significant milestone for the club."

The site will include grass pitches for the first-team and academy, an indoor 3G pitch, an outdoor 3G pitch, as well as sports science and rehabilitation areas.

The Hoops were keen to mention the facilities will be available to use by the wider community, as well as QPR's professional and academy players.
