Trafford Borough Council has approved the development of a £12m events facility at Lancashire County Cricket Club.

Work will begin in February on the conference, events and banqueting space that over-looks the Old Trafford cricket ground's pitch.

The new event space will have capacity for 1,000 delegates and is due for completion in summer 2010.

The club's commercial director, Geoff Durbin, said: "Manchester has been crying out for a 1,000-plus capacity event space for many years."

A solid-walled marquee that can host more than 700 guests as been set up at the club that will remain in place until the conference centre is complete.
