Regeneration - £260m to build new homes and businesses in Anfield

Liverpool Council has announced a £260 million pound scheme to regenerate the city's Anfield district.

The proposal involves new homes, refurbishing more than 500 existing houses, a shopping precinct, office buildings, and a hotel.

The council wants people who live in the area to give their opinions of the plans. Mayor Joe Anderson says: "It is essential that people understand that what we are unveiling today is a range of Anfield-wide regeneration ideas and concepts which we are confident can be delivered but which we genuinely need to hear people's views on.

"We believe the plans are exciting and will deliver a step-change in quality of life for many thousands of people and be of major benefit to the city not just Anfield. But residents, business people and others may have other opinions and their own brilliant ideas.

"Please tell us what you think and what you want. Anfield does not belong to Liverpool City Council and it does not belong to Liverpool Football Club or Your Housing Group. Anfield belongs to everyone."
