The first-stage public consultation into Everton Football Club’s proposals for a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock and a community-led redevelopment of Goodison Park opened on Thursday 15 November.
Under the campaign name The People’s Project, the consultation will tour the city region for three weeks, visiting various locations in Liverpool and Wirral. The consultations will give members of the public an opportunity to have their say on the principle of Bramley-Moore Dock becoming the site of Everton’s new stadium and the Club’s plans to leave a sustainable legacy at Goodison Park.
A second-stage public consultation on the Club’s detailed stadium designs and high-level plans for Goodison Park will be held in the summer of 2019 which will lead to the submission of planning applications in the second half of 2019.
Colin Chong, Everton’s Stadium Development Director, said: “The start of the formal public consultation is a key milestone in our plan to build a new home for the Club at Bramley-Moore Dock, as well as develop a community-led legacy at Goodison Park.
“The People’s Project will deliver a £1bn boost to the local economy, create around 15,000 jobs and increase tourism visitor numbers to Liverpool. The knock-on effect of a stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock will also kick-start the Liverpool Waters waterfront development and extend into the Ten Streets creative development.
“We encourage and welcome people from across the city region to engage with the consultation and share their views.”
