KIRKBY PLANS PASSED

Knowsley Borough Council approve plans for Everton's new stadium in Kirkby

KIRKBY PLANS PASSED

Plans for Everton's proposed new stadium in Kirkby have received near-unanimous backing from Knowsley Borough Council (KBC).

The proposal, made jointly by Everton and Tesco, was passed by a 20-to-1 vote at a special meeting of the KBC planning committee on Monday.

The plans will now go before central government where a decision will be made over whether or not the scheme should be 'called-in' for an inquiry.

That decision is expected within three weeks.

Everton CEO Keith Wyness told evertonfc.com: "We are absolutely delighted with the outcome, and I think the fact the vote was in no way close - 20-to-1 - shows that the Knowsley Borough councillors are ready to embrace the regeneration of the Kirkby area.

"This is another major step forward for us as a football club as we seek to find a new home. The next big step comes in the form of trying to ensure the project is not 'called-in' for inquiry form the government.

"Hopefully, they will look at this decisive result and accept that the future of this project should be decided at a local rather than a national level."
