Everton Football Club is launching a widescale public consultation into the new proposals for a spectacular new stadium next to the River Mersey, which will further regenerate North Liverpool. 

The consultation, which will be held in November under ‘The People’s Project’ campaign name, will mark the start of a formal process which will lead to the submission of planning applications for both sites in the second half of next year.

A new campaign website contains information on the consultation activities and will be the primary hub for information relating to the construction of a new stadium in an iconic riverfront setting, as well as the development of community-led amenities which could include homes, health, business and education facilities at Goodison Park.

Everton Chief Executive Officer Denise Barrett-Baxendale, said: “This consultation marks a very significant moment as we progress with this project. We would like as many people as possible – and not just football fans – to take part and let us know their views.

“Our ambition is not just to create a new home for a very proud and historic football club but also a new landmark stadium, in an iconic setting, which will deliver huge regeneration benefits for the whole of the Liverpool City Region.

“We have deep roots in L4 and are committed to building on the extensive investment we have already made in the area. We are preparing plans to redevelop the existing stadium site to create facilities which will benefit the whole community, creating jobs and improving lives.

“Everton is committed to delivering an authentic football stadium which responds to Liverpool’s World Heritage Site designation.

Iain Jenkinson, Senior Director of international property advisory firm CBRE, said: “What is so significant about Everton’s plans is the transformational impact they will have on the regeneration and renaissance of North Liverpool.

“Our research shows that the two developments together – at Bramley-Moore Dock and Goodison – will deliver once-in-a-generation benefits to the whole of the Liverpool City region, a £1bn boost to the economy and the creation of some 15,000 new jobs.”
