Everton Football Club will submit its planning application for a state-of-the-art, 52-000-seater stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, within Peel L&P's Liverpool Waters development today.
In a blog post updating fans on progress with the People's Project, Stadium Development Director Colin Chong thanks the public for their contribution to the consultation process and confirms the date on which its detailed application will be formally lodged with Liverpool City Council.
Combined with Everton's plans for a community-led legacy project at Goodison Park, the transformational proposals have the potential to deliver a £1bn boost to the city's economy, create up to 15,000 new jobs and deliver £237m of additional societal value.
The stadium plans will be followed by a separate outline planning application for Goodison Park, with the intention for both applications to be determined by Liverpool City Council at the same time.
The planning milestone follows more than two years of consultation with the general public, city stakeholders and fans, which has revealed widespread support for the proposals.
