Everton/Tesco’s stadium plan for Kirkby gets go-ahead

Knowsley council last night gave planning permission for Tesco and Everton FC's new stadium and retail centre in Kirkby.

The controversial £400m scheme includes a new supermarket, 50,000-seat stadium, 592,000 sq ft of additional retail, a hotel, offices and public realm works.

Knowsley's planning committee voted 20-to-1 in favour of the development.

The club and retail giant must wait another three weeks to hear if the decision will be called in for a public inquiry.
