A £260 million pounds plan to regenerate the Anfield area of Liverpool has been unveiled.

The plans include, new housing, changes to the Anfield stadium, a new hotel and a new road named Avenue 96 in honour of the 96 fans who died at the Hillsborough disaster.

Local residents and businesses are to be asked for their views on the plans.

Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson said:

The publication of today’s draft SRF sends a very clear message to the people of north Liverpool: a brighter Anfield is coming.

“This is one of the most important milestones in the recent history of north Liverpool and will lead to a huge improvement in quality of life for many thousands of people.

“These plans have evolved over the last year thanks to the people of Anfield themselves.

They have told us what they want – new opportunities, new homes, an improved environment – and we have listened.

We now want those residents and businesses to speak to us again and let us know if they want these plans to become reality.
