Everton Stadium 2

Everton sets stadium submission date

Everton Football Club has revealed that its planning application for the 52,000-capacity stadium on Bramley Moore Dock is to be submitted on 23 December.

This follows more than two years of public consultation, including two rounds of public consultation last year, and one this summer, which together generated over 63,000 responses. The club claims this is the largest commercial public consultation in the history of Liverpool.

The consultation found that 98% of people supported Dan Meis’ design for the Bramley Moore Dock, and 92% supported the outline design for the redevelopment of Goodison Park.

In an update posted on the People’s Project blog this morning, Colin Chong, stadium development director at Everton Football Club, said that the football club’s plans for Goodison Park, which would “have the potential to deliver £1bn for the city’s economy and create 15,000 jobs”, will also be submitted around the same time.

The blog also details the technical assessment which have gone into the final proposals, including the use of fluid dynamics to map movement around the stadium.

The club also said that it will reveal images of the final design, upload a fly-through video, and update its app on the afternoon of 23 December.

The dock is situated within Peel L&P’s £5.5bn Liverpool Water’s development.

Chong said: “I’m pleased to confirm that our detailed planning application at Bramley Moore Dock will be submitted on Monday 23 December.

“Working alongside our design consultants, we have analysed the feedback to enhance the concepts we’ve already shared for the look, feel and layout of a stadium at Bramley Moore Dock including our plans to not only preserve but to also celebrate the site’s heritage.

“It is a case of evolution, rather than any major changes to the design presented during the second stage consultation. The results of that consultation made it clear Dan Meis’ design was incredibly well received.

“The elements that the feedback told us people really loved about the design; the use of brick, the steepness of the stands, the respect to the area’s heritage and nod to Archibald Leitch’s architecture in the brickwork as well as the blending of new and old, will all be present within our final proposals.”

A real milestone for the new year! This will be a defining scheme for Liverpool in the 2020s given the stadium’s pivotal location on the north docks.

Great news! Please don’t forget the regeneration of Walton and County Road – and what you leave behind with no footfall.

Looks great I hope Man United take notice as Old Trafford is a bit dated these days.
